Yoga for Seniors Workshop with Krysia Maciuszko
From: 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Yoga can be done at any age. It's just a matter of picking what type of yoga you do and working within your abilities. “We lose about a half-pound of muscle per year for each year we’re not regularly engaged in resistance training,” says Jessica Matthews, assistant professor of exercise science at Miramar College in San Diego. Strength training also helps keep your bones strong.
Yoga is great for seniors because it does not require specialized equipment and can be done anywhere. “One of the most important things is taking great care to understand what your body needs,” Matthews says. If you have arthritis, limited mobility, or other health issues, she says, there is a modification for almost every yoga pose to accommodate your physical needs. Yoga is a great way to gently build your endurance while also fostering a mind-body connection.
