GOLDEN YOGA – A Precious Class For Your Golden Years
September 24, 2018
Growing older doesn’t have to mean slowing down. Now is the time to fully embrace life, and the abundant opportunities Yoga has to offer.
New to Samadhi Dublin, Golden Yoga is designed for people over 60 years of age, and/or those who have physical limitations, who wish to start practicing yoga.
No matter what your age, fitness level or flexibility is, yoga practice can be adapted to meet your needs and your body’s ability.
Some of the benefits of practicing yoga include –
➢ Improved balance
➢ Improved flexibility
➢ Stronger muscles and bones
➢ Improved circulation
➢ Improved sleep
➢ Management of stress and anxiety
➢ It’s fun! It provides a nice way to meet like-minded people
Each Golden Yoga class begins by allowing us the time and space we need to become aware of our wonderful bodies and all important breath. At this point we also pay attention to our physical alignment and notice tactile sensations. We then start moving with some gentle warm up stretching, allowing us to prepare for the more energetic part of the class. Then, we spend time practicing classical yoga “asanas” (traditional physical yoga postures) and perhaps some “pranayama” (yogic breathing techniques). Classes conclude with a well-deserved deep and restorative relaxation.
Specific yoga props like chairs, bolsters, blocks and blankets are used to ensure we get the maximum benefit from our yoga practice.
Golden Yoga is offered in 4 week blocks. Sharon and Aiveen alternate teaching classes. Both teachers are passionate about sharing the benefits of practicing yoga with all ages and abilities. So they are thrilled to be teaching Golden Yoga!
