Teaching a yoga for seniors class is one of my favourite kundalini yoga classes to teach.
As you can see from the above photo, all students are seated in chairs in what we refer to as chair yoga.
For anyone familiar with a typical Hatha yoga class, you may be wondering how you do yoga if you are sitting down. Well, this is where Kundalini Yoga is so powerful.
You see, Kundalini Yoga is not about twisting yourself into a pretzel and doing a bunch of postures that require great flexibility. Instead, much of Kundalini yoga is done in a seated position on the yoga mat...so really, there is not much difference between a traditional Kundalini yoga class and a yoga for seniors chair class.
And because there is not much difference, it is very powerful.
I am amazed at how powerful it really is. For instance, say we did a few exercises such as spinal twists, simple squats, leg lifts, neck and shoulder rotations and some breath work. Many of these exercises are taught to seniors in a regular chair-fit aerobic class, but with one BIG difference...it is not done with the consciousness, precise timing and order of a yoga class.
Believe me, this makes a huge difference. With Kundalini Yoga, all classes are taught exactly the way the masters told us to teach it. As Kundalini yoga teachers we do not make any of it up and so the power of the class is due to its specific design, the same design that existed for thousands of years.
If you would like more information specifically in terms of 'what is Kundalini yoga' or 'kundalini yoga benefits', please go to those pages on the website, but trust what the students in my yoga for seniors classes are saying:
As with all yoga classes that I teach, we follow a particular format:
Although these are some of the benefits of yoga for seniors, the list is really endless. Yoga is a priceless gift and until you have tried it yourself, you may not understand just how beneficial it really is, so if you have any questions, please contact me.
I also travel to various senior centers and retirement homes to teach meditation and yoga for seniors classes, so if you would like to have me come to you, again, please give me a shout.
