When one turns 60 (or more), one has usually spent many years fulfilling obligations and responsibilities. This is a time when one may begin to feel the effects of ageing. It can also be a time to slow down, catch up with interests and passions that perhaps got pushed to the side in the busier years. However, to do so, one needs to be in good health.
The regular practice of yoga keeps the body and the mind of the elder healthy and peaceful. However, the practice has to be tailored to suit their current status, so that it can enhance their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Whom is the workshop for?
If you are a yoga teacher who works with the elderly, this workshop is for you. It will help you fully comprehend what it means to guide them. This online workshop will help you understand:
- What to expect when you teach the elderly
- Yogic perspectives on old age
- Do’s and don’ts when designing practices for the elderly
- Appropriate diet and lifestyle suggestions for better health and preventive care
- Yogic tools and techniques best suited for this stage of life
Please note that this workshop will focus on general well-being and preventive care for elders. Therapeutic cures for ailments is beyond the scope of this workshop.
