Yoga for Seniors: Maintaining Strength, Mobility & Balance

Yoga for Healthy Aging

Movement for Healthy Aging Classes

Yoga for Healthy Aging
Maintain Strength, Mobility & Balance
This class is suitable for older adults who want to proactively manage the challenges of aging, protect themselves from injury, and feel more relaxed and confident. 
Our focus will be to build and maintain strength, mobility and balance in the body whilst calming the nervous  system and steadying the mind, leading to better sleep and improved digestion.

Ten Good Reasons to Practice Yoga

  1. Yoga is for everyone: young or old, male or female, healthy or sick. Yoga can always be adapted to your individual needs, whatever your circumstances.
  2. Even if you are facing many challenges in your life, it is easy to start doing yoga and you will experience instant benefits, such as stress relief. Furthermore, once you begin to practice regularly, yoga will help you live your life with renewed positivity and enthusiasm.
  3. Yoga is safe. When practiced properly (with an awareness of your physical limitations) it is a completely harmless form of exercise.
  4. Yoga needs no special equipment. While there are a few props that might make your practice more comfortable, the only thing you really need in order to do yoga is you.
  5. Yoga both tones the respiratory system and helps you to breathe more fully, deeply and easily (thus increasing your oxygen intake), which in turn, will improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
  6. Yoga improves the efficiency of your body systems, aiding digestion, the assimilation of nutrients and the elimination of toxins.
  7. Yoga improves the quality of your sleep so that, when you wake up, you feel refreshed and full of vitality.
  8. Yoga gives you energy and helps you channel your energy effectively so that you don’t waste it on tension, stress and negativity.
  9. Through practising yoga techniques, you experience a genuine sense of outward tranquillity, which eventually helps you to achieve a deep state of inner peace too.
  10. Yoga is FUN!

WHEN COMING TO YOGA……………………..

  • Wear loose, comfortable & stretchy clothes that enable you to move easily. Remove your watch and any jewellery.
  • Go barefoot – this gives you a sense of close contact with the ground and allows the muscles in your feet to operate freely.
  • It is best to practice on an empty stomach, leave at least 1.5hours after a meal before coming to practice. (If that’s not possible – have something light & easy to digest)
  • A yoga mat is helpful but not essential; you may like to bring a towel or a blanket.
  • Yoga is not supposed to hurt! You must be constantly observant and mindful of how you are feeling during class. If you feel unsettled or exhausted during your practice, perhaps you are pushing yourself too hard. Be a little kinder to yourself.

Yin Roll & Release – Full Body Therapy Ball Massage Workshop

Self Massage Workshop
Self Massage Workshop
Yin Roll & Release: Full body therapy ball massage workshop with Deanne Kong

This workshop will teach participants techniques to give themselves a full body massage just about anywhere, anytime, using official Yoga Tune Up brand therapy balls.

Do you:

  • Have muscle tension from overuse or poor postural habits?
  • Run out of time to book a massage when you really need one?
  • Not look after your own body enough because of financial constraints?


This workshop will show you Yin Yoga techniques and Roll Model® therapy ball methods to release tension through the whole body. We will release fascia through the upper body (face, neck and shoulders, chest and arms, abdominals), upper and lower back, and lower body (glutes, legs and feet). This is perfect for anyone carrying tension around their neck and shoulders from posture, work stress, sports and new mums, and those with sore backs and legs from training for winter sports.
GET TICKETS

Learn to

  • Release knots and trigger points to instantly relieve tension
  • Use long hold stretches (yin yoga) to further release the myofascia
  • Learn a complete, whole body massage from head to toe that you can use to “tune up” and maintain your body


Why the Yoga Tune Up brand therapy balls?

These rubber balls are designed specifically for massage – the rubber yields to mold around bony prominences, they also grip (unlike a tennis ball) to allow for grab and shear around the tissue and fascia layers, and they responsive having both spring and give with body weight and pressure. Balls can access precise trigger points and navigate hard to reach tissues at the joint junctions better than a traditional foam roller, and are a portable travel companion to keep you pain free on the road.

We will use Yoga Tune Up balls as a massage tool as well as yoga props to support us through this practice, which can be made as gentle as you wish. I will have a variety of other equipment on hand for those that prefer a gentler (or firmer) option. Students that find floor therapy ball work painful will have the option to do techniques against the wall, which allows the student better pressure control, or using softer balls.

Our session will end with a 20 minute yoga nidra meditation to leave you floating in bliss after your full body massage experience.

“My name is Stewart. I am the least flexible participant in your yoga class today!! Cyclist with thigh/glute strain. Thanks so much for today’s class. While not wanting to overstate it, my body and post the class, my mind, felt liberated after doing Yin. I have enjoyed all your classes, but the Yin today was just the tonic,
Kind regards
Stewart Caust” (Therapy Ball/Yin class participant – Jan 2017).

“I bought massage balls a few months back and had been playing about with them. However, once I was in Deanne’s class I realised that I was only using them to a fraction of their potential! She explained everything very concisely and made it easy to follow where the balls should be placed. I learned lots of new techniques and feel the confidence to use them everyday in my own practice. Thanks so much Deanne! Xx” – Claire Nisbett, October 2017

“I have weekly massage for chronic pain, learning how to do it myself or even paying to come to a workshop each week would save me money. It also means whenever I have a flare I can treat myself” – Sarah, December 2017

“After completing the Therapy Ball Workshop I felt amazing! As a Massage Therapist I have attended a few similar events but this one really excelled. I was impressed with the content in the workshop and how it was demonstrated to be done at home in your own time. Deanne presented the workshop beautifully and I would completely recommend you invest in your body and experience one of her upcoming workshops” – Kristy Jenkinson, September 2017
