How Seniors Yoga Can Change The Lives Of Aged Care Residents
Maintaining physical and mental wellbeing is so important in older age, and seniors yoga is one of the best ways for senior people to keep healthy and active. At YOGAMIGOS, we believe that every retirement village, nursing home, and aged care facility should incorporate yoga for seniors into their lifestyle, health, and wellbeing programs. That’s why we have more than 50 mobile instructors that teach yoga classes for seniors, and we’ve seen the benefits first-hand.

The Benefits Of Mindfulness Sessions In Aged Care Facilities
Mindfulness is the art of being aware of the present moment. Whether you’re enjoying your surroundings, revelling in an experience, or focusing on your body, mindfulness exercises help us calm our minds and ease stress, nervousness, and anxiety. Studies have shown that older people who practice regular mindfulness have a better quality of life, reporting better mental and physical wellbeing. The YOGAMIGOS team felt that seniors living in aged care facilities and retirement homes across Australia should have access to the benefits of mindfulness, so our mobile teachers provide classes specialising in mindfulness for the elderly.
