Golden Groove - Free Chair Yoga & Gentle Stretch for Seniors

About this event

Golden groove is our dream for those approaching their golden age or at their golden age to be grooving everywhere and grooving at everything instead of thinking "I am too old for this and that!".

That’s our mind talking, not the body.

No one is too old or too stiff for yoga.

Golden Groove

Benefits of practising golden groove

  1. Better Balance: Many of the movements and balancing yoga poses focus on strengthening the legs, abdominal muscles and improving core stability. That can definitely help to be steadier and reduce the risk of falling.
  2. Improved flexibility: Yoga movements can be great stretching exercises. Holding poses for several breaths of minutes encourages the muscles and connective tissues to relax and loosen, which helps to increase the body’s range of motion.
  3. Stronger body and bones; If you are worried about brittle bones and osteoporosis, try yoga. A consistent yoga routine that includes our own body weight-bearing postures can help bolster bone strength.
  4. Reduce anxiety, stress and better sleep; Yoga can help alleviate sleep disturbances, which are common complaints among seniors. The practise encourages us to focus on the present moment and find a sense of ease and peace. With that, it can lower levels of stress hormones and help ease symptoms of anxiety and depression and help improve the overall quality of sleep.
  5. Enhanced breathing; The practice is accompanied by simple breathing control practices of yoga. This can expand lung capacity and improve pulmonary health.

Thank you for your kindness Yvonne. You show us what it means to transform your passion into caring for the community.
