Silver Age Yoga—a style of Hatha yoga based on geriatric science and research—allows seniors to safely participate at their level of comfort with maximum effectiveness. The results of a regular practice include: better balance, a stronger center, and a healthier posture to prevent falls and improve coordination. You will also gain flexibility and strength, work with your breath to energize and calm you, enhance your immune and nervous system, as well as improve your emotional and mental well-being. You will feel better than ever and learn helpful tips in class for your overall well-being.
This unique program benefits many people on different levels. Seniors receive weekly, health enhancing and life enriching yoga practices in a warm and welcoming environment. Their adult children worry less knowing their parents are proactively engaged. The community benefits by having healthier and more active seniors. Yoga teachers are able to give back to the community.
La Jolla Yoga Center is honored to offer Silver Age Yoga twice weekly on a donation basis—give what you can to support the teacher and the program. Read more about the non-profit Silver Age Yoga, serving San Diego County and the wider world since 2003.
