Benefits of Yoga for the Elderly

Practicing yoga offers several advantages for seniors. Adapted to their physical limitations and pace, yoga provides respite for the mind and enhances overall well-being.

Hatha Yoga for Seniors

Among the various yoga styles, Hatha yoga has gained widespread popularity. Martine Tulik, an experienced instructor affiliated with the French Hatha Yoga Federation, leads classes at the La Blaiserie social center.

She emphasizes that yoga transcends mere physical exercise, encompassing a profound philosophy. “Our focus is not on achieving complex postures but on calming the mind,” she explains. “Yoga serves as a tool for concentration, inner peace, and mindful breathing.”

Positive Experiences and Benefits

Senior yoga participants attest to the positive impact of the practice. Odette, a resident of La Blaiserie, shares her experience: “Yoga improves my flexibility and helps me navigate my visual impairment. I always feel invigorated after a session.”

Tulik highlights the supportive and non-competitive atmosphere: “Our classes promote empathy and acceptance. We embark on a transformative journey together.”
