Bringing Chair Yoga To Seniors In Peterborough

Here at Comfort Keepers Peterborough, we know how important physical, mental and social activity are for the seniors we care for.

That is why we are pleased to offer our new Mindful Movement Chair Yoga For Seniors group classes to retirement residences and assisted living facilities as well as private in-home chair yoga classes to seniors in Peterborough and the surrounding area. We are extending our support outside of the home and into the community and couldn’t be more excited! Learn More About Chair Yoga For Seniors

What Is Chair Yoga?

Chair yoga is exactly what it sounds like! Doing yoga from a seated position in a chair. Changing the practice in this way makes it accessible to older adults who are unsteady on their feet, who are using a wheelchair or walker and to those who have limited mobility or range of motion. The stability provided by the chair makes yoga a safe and enjoyable experience for people who may otherwise not have been able to participate. 

Chair Yoga Offers Physical And Emotional Benefits To Seniors 

Yoga is a wonderful wellness practice for people of all ages. As a form of gentle exercise, yoga is particularly beneficial to seniors. Whether yoga is practised standing or seated, some of its benefits include: 

  • building strength and stamina, increasing flexibility and range of motion and loosening and stretching stiff or painful muscles and joints 
  • a chance to connect with friends and peers
  • Relaxation, stress reduction an active mind-body connection 
  • mental stimulation and help to boost cognitive function
  • better and more refreshing sleep 

Because chair yoga can be modified and adapted to suit anyone’s physical abilities, it is accessible to (and safe for) most seniors. Learn More About The Benefits Of Chair Yoga For Seniors On Our Blog
