Fifty Plus Yoga Class

Flametree Yoga  offers a customised class for people over fifty.

The class runs on a Wednesday morning.

The classes teach easy, introductory poses that are entirely suitable for those with the typical situations of the Fifty Plus age group.

Poses are also further customised for particular situations. For those coming ONLINE the teacher is using two way video so individual alternative poses can be offered as needed.

 

Huge benefits for Fifty Plus people

There is now a growing body of evidence that shows that a regular yoga practice can reduce the need for prescription drugs, ease pain, reduce stress,  boost the immune system, calm the nervous system, help relieve chronic tension, assist the heart, help balance blood sugar levels and keep the mind sharp. (See Suza Francina “The New Yoga for Heathy Aging”).

Many believe that once they reach a certain age yoga is beyond them. In fact, yoga has a great deal to offer the mature person.

As Geeta Iyengar notes “Yoga is a gift for older people. One who studies yoga in the later years gains not only health and happiness, but also freshness of mind… since yoga gives one a bright outlook on life. One can look forward to a more healthful future rather than looking back into the past. Yoga is a rebirth which teaches one to face the rest of one’s life happily, peacefully and courageously”.

In this class yoga props, like chairs, blocks, and bolsters, are used to help you feel your body and make the poses easier and more enjoyable. The classes have both active and restorative poses in them, so you will leave feeling like you have stretched out your spine, are less anxious, and also very relaxed.

We use safe and secure procedures for online classes

Flametree uses a very secure and safe process for online yoga. Students are first registered in Flametree’s online booking system.

Second, just before each class starts, students check into an online waiting room. They are then checked individually into the online classroom by the teacher, as he or she greets each one of them.

It is not possible for anyone to attend or see the class who is not authorised to be there, and vetted by the teacher.

Many options for a mix of classes that suit you

The Fifty Plus class runs each week. You can mix this class with other options like Slow Yoga and Restorative and Women`s only.
