Yoga for Seniors with Jane Adams: Improve balance, strength and flexibility with Gentle Senior Yoga IN STOCK
Yoga for Seniors with Jane Adams is a gentle yoga practice that will strengthen the entire body, improve balance, and increase joint range-of-motion. Based on a popular yoga class at an assisted living facility, this DVD will benefit seniors with a wide range of needs and abilities. The DVD has two 35-minute sections: A live yoga class with seniors ranging in age from 73-92, and an instructor-only version. Both teach the same 40 safe, easy-to-follow movements, all done seated or standing alongside a chair.
The goal of this DVD is to help seniors live a fuller, more independent life. Special emphasis is placed on increasing strength and flexibility in the muscles and joints most needed in performing everyday tasks. For example, we do many movements on this DVD to strengthen the feet, ankles and legs to improve balance and help avoid falls; We strengthen the legs for greater mobility in getting up and down from chairs and in and out of cars; and we work on increasing range of motion in the shoulders, arms and hands for greater ease in performing tasks such as getting dressed and doing housework. Deep full breathing and good posture are encouraged throughout. One physician thought it was so good she bought 100 to give to her senior patients.
This DVD will leave you feeling both relaxed and energized. It will be the DVD you turn to again and again for a fun, relaxing, total-body yoga workout.
