Full Description

It is never too late to take up yoga. The later years of life can truly be golden - there is time to devote to oneself both physically and spiritually. Many problems of later life are compounded by insufficient exercise and shallow breathing. But the body has incredible regenerative powers and even after a short time of practising yoga, one can sleep better, have improved energy and a more positive approach to life.

This weekend course for graduates of the Sivananda Teachers’ Training Course will focus on how to teach asana variations for seniors with limited flexibility. Asana class models for various advanced age groups will be practiced and explained. We will look into the warm-up exercises and pay special attention to care for the back.
