Our increasing population of seniors is looking for ways to maintain health and age gracefully. The aging process can vary widely from one person to the next, with a common variable being how active or sedentary the person is. For many people the aging process involves loss of muscular strength, decreased flexibility, and increased risk for falls. About 55% of people over 50 have low bone density, which increases their risk for fracture.

Yoga teachers and yoga therapists have an opportunity to provide a much-needed service by learning to help older people:

  1. Practice yoga safely
  2. Use yoga practice to optimize bone strength
  3. To maintain muscle strength and flexibility

In this course, you will learn:

  1. How to teach yoga gently and safely to help seniors maintain a full and active life
  2. How to help people build strength, flexibility, and balance
  3. How to enhance bone density for the otherwise healthy yoga practitioner and for those with low bone density.
  4. How to modify asanas for those with osteoporosis, including those who already experience postural and structural changes.

For more information, see Course Syllabus.

Your instructors for this course are all certified Ananda Yoga teachers as well as medical professionals: Barbara Bingham, PT; Maitri Jones, RN; Nayaswami Mangala, RN, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner.
