That is where Yoga steps in!
One of the great things about Yoga is that it is non-competitive and so adaptable. Yoga can accommodate the needs of different demographics (age groups, sexes, populations, cultures) and when it is applied in an individual context, as is the tradition, Yoga can directly address the particular physical capabilities, requests and/or requirements of that student.
A modified Yoga practice can be an effective means of exercise/secondary therapy for improving health and wellbeing, particularly for seniors. A specific, tailored Yoga class for mature-age adults with well-paced, non-strenuous poses is excellent for helping people with limited mobility to integrate movement and physical exercise into their lives.
Unlike weight training, crossfit or aerobics, Yoga can be easy on the joints and concentrate on honouring and accepting an individual as a whole being.
