Yoga can be good for adults of all ages, especially seniors! Know someone who may benefit from a FREE class on Wednesdays starting April 5th with a Registered Yoga Teacher? The Estate & Elder Law Center of Southside Virginia will be sponsoring a class to be held at the historic John D. Bassett / EMI Building starting Wednesdays on April 5th! Pass this information along if you know someone who could benefit from this class - We hope to see you there!
You do not have to be double-jointed, or have the flexibility of an acrobat to benefit from yoga. In fact, students can participate from the mat, a chair or even a wheelchair! Studies have shown that yoga can be extremely helpful when it comes to combating depression, stress, anxiety and pain. Some yoga poses increase core strength and balance, which reduces the risk of fall-related injuries. Above all, yoga is a form of exercise that can help seniors feel younger and happier!
