An Accessible Yoga Practice for Seniors

August 15, 2017    BY Jivana Heyman

Get a chair, a bolster, and a few blankets and enjoy this simple and sweet practice.

You'll do chair sun salutations, king dancer at the wall, seated forward folds (on the floor), supported bridge, an accessible shoulderstand variation, and more. The practice concludes with alternate nostril breathing and meditation. 

Although this practice is designed for seniors, anyone can enjoy it—especially if you love gentle yoga.

Thank you to JadeYoga, the official mat of Yoga International.
