Frequently Asked Questions

  • What type of yoga is best for seniors?

    Our approach to yoga for seniors is slow and gentle. Our hatha, yin, restorative, or mindful yoga sessions encourage breathwork, muscle tension release, and mind-body connection - perfect for those looking to ease into movement and breath.

  • Is yoga good for over 60?

    Absolutely! It’s never too late (or early!) to begin a yoga practice, the key is selecting the right style that fits with your wellness goals. At Anahana, we create custom yoga packages to meet you where you are, no matter your experience or fitness level.

  • Why is yoga good for seniors?

    As we age, our muscular and skeletal structure tends to deteriorate. With gentle yoga practice, we can aim to rebuild, strengthen, and stimulate muscle tone and as a result we see improvements in posture, balance, and even sleep!

  • Is yoga safe for seniors?

    With consultation from your doctor, we build yoga programs tailored to your specific needs. Our yoga instructors often lead chair yoga for seniors to create a safe and comfortable environment to gently stretch and tone tired muscles.
