Can seniors (above 60 years) do yoga asanas?
You can do yoga at any age. It’s just a matter of picking what type of yoga you do and working within your abilities.
There is a range of standing, sitting, lying down and chair yoga asanas for you to choose from.
Practice asanas once a day, and you are ready to go.
Yoga slows down the ageing process by softening the muscles and maintaining flexibility. So, if you wish to be active and healthy even while you are in your 60s and above, practice yoga daily.
Make sure you take the advice of a doctor before going ahead with the yoga practice and train only under a certified yoga instructor before you begin to exercise on your own at home.
If you have certain ailments, mention it to the yoga instructor beforehand so that necessary adjustments are made to the yoga asana sequence to not aggravate the problem by any means.
