Yoga and mindfulness for the elderly

Caring for elderly people is a cornerstone of our culture. By means of yoga and mindfulness lessons, we help to improve the quality of life, support vitality and provide well-being through sharing. We organise regular exercise with experienced yoga and mindfulness instructors.

It is often sufficient to become more aware of your own body, which then starts to be healthier automatically. Yoga can even be practiced in a lying position in bed. The mere idea of a specific movement activates the muscle tissue in the area in focus, and improves blood circulation. Older people can give us so much valuable experience. Let’s help them retain their vitality and ability to share their joyful thoughts. One day, when they leave their body, they will have a smile on their faces showing that they enjoyed their time here.

“Thank you so much for the yoga. I find it so relaxing, and we have learned new exercises. I look forward to every Wednesday, because that is yoga day.” says Jiřina, 84 years old.
