Yoga Lesson Plan Description
Yoga is good for adults of all ages, especially seniors.
Studies have shown that yoga can be extremely helpful when it comes to combating stress, fatigue and pain. Yoga poses increase core strength and balance, which reduces the risk of fall-related injuries. Yoga can help seniors feel younger and stronger. Adults lose about a half-pound (200 grams) of muscle per year for each year they’re not regularly engaged in resistance training.
Yoga is ideal strength/resistance training for seniors to help keep bones and muscles strong.
