Senior Social – Seated Yoga with Fruit Salad

Thursday, Jun 13, 2019

1:30pm – 3:00pm

On Thursday 13th June Senior Social will be joined by Lynne who will be teaching seated yoga.

Yoga has been shown to improve overall health when practiced regularly. As with many forms of exercise, it can be modified for people of varying abilities. Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that can be done sitting on a chair or standing on the ground while using the chair for support. It is beneficial for people with limited mobility and for those who want to practice yoga at their workplace or own pace. The benefits of practicing these chair yoga poses (called asanas) include:

  • Improved flexibility. Flexibility allows us to do the activities we need and love to do, from twisting while driving to bending over to play with children.
  • Better concentration. Incorporating breath work with the poses can help clear your brain of unwanted thoughts, improve mood and decrease stress.
  • Increased strength. Body strength enables us to withstand falls and injury and helps us with balance.
  • Reduced joint strain. Chair yoga reduces the strain on joints and muscles, which allows someone who is unable to stand for traditional yoga an opportunity to practice to

Only 20 tickets are available at £2 per person which includes a fruit salad.
