Over the years, more seniors and old age people falling in the age group of 50 to 80 years have started practicing Yoga than what we used to witness 10 to 15 years ago. Seniors are more aware about their physical and mental health now than they used to be before. Medical advancement in the past few decades has certainly extended the average life span of most of the people born in last 3 or 4 decades but it has exposed us to new health challenges with deteriorating life standards and styles of modern times. Oldies are finding themselves in the middle of new chronic health issues where conventional modern medicine has disappointed them.
Holistic Yoga therapy and practice gives a new ray of light to all the Old bones. The safe, slow and steady Yoga practice builds the core muscle strength and joint mobility for the seniors along with giving a chance to find peace and happiness. Seniors are more informed about the prevention of disease and are aware that Yoga and Meditation provide a holistic approach to health, focusing on the mind-body connection.
