  1. This is an excellent form of exercise for the elderly. I’ve never heard of chair yoga, but it’s certainly a great idea. Yes, so many in their 80s and 90s suffer from arthritic joints or poor balance. I’m sure chair yoga can help ease stiffness and enable those of an older age to become more independent. Yoga is wonderful for all ages as you mentioned, though not really tried it myself

    • Hi Kathy,
      I also recently discovered chair yoga, accidentally, while looking for something entirely different on YouTube.
      I recommended it already to quite a few people and many of them say it is easily achievable and adjustable. Absoulutelly suitable for the elderly or mobility-limited people.
      All the best

  2. Hi Kerryanne,

    That is so interesting. I have done yoga a few times, but I didn’t follow through with it. Chair yoga looks like a wonderful way to stay active and mobile. Yoga does many great things for the body and it is highly recommended.
    It’s a good thing that we can still follow yoga classes via zoom or Youtube videos, so even though we cannot attend physical classes, we can still practice at home. To make it less lonely (since we are always home nowadays), you could even share the class with a friend via whatsapp video call, and in this way share your experience with it. It’s just an idea 🙂

    Wow! This is a great idea! I’m trying to convince my mom to start practising yoga at home because she has problems with her back, especially the lower back. I KNOW that yoga is the best remedy from back pain, and pain for that matter, but she just does not want to listen. She is convinced that medication will do the trick…In any case, thanks a lot for sharing this type of yoga exercise. I’m sure my mom is going to change her mind after reading your post!

    • I honestly hope she will, as this way she can have all the good sides of yoga, all the numerous benefits without pressure to do something uncomfortable.
      I kinda also always knew yoga is extremely beneficial, but just now realised that absolutely anyone can do it, even if only sitting is the most upright position one can maintain.

    I don’t have a clue how I ended up on this post, but I’m definitely sharing it with my mom. She has been feeling down lately because of lack of physical activity, and I’m sure that this will cheer her up!

    Thank you for this amazing post. I enjoyed reading it. 🙂

    • Funny how sometimes we accidentally end up exactly at the spot we should have and gain some knowledge from there, isn’t it? Just like I ended watching a completely different video from what I’ve been looking for and still learnt a lot from it.
      Glad you enjoyed it and I hope your Mum will, too.

  5. Hey Kerryanne,

    Thank you for posting this highly beneficial post on yoga for seniors. I never knew the yoga for seniors would be this easy and practical! You must have alot of experience on teaching this skills to your clients!

    I am sure many people reading will benefit this. I will also pass this information on my relatives and friends to benefit from.

    Thank you

    Best wishes

    • No, actually I do not have any. As I said, I just stumbled upon a video that caught my attention and made me explore it deeper. Only after that I realised as well, how little I knew about yoga, so far. But, I’m happy if you found this shareable with your friends-thanks.
