Yoga f0r 0ver 50s
Flametree Yoga offers several classes especially suitable for people over fifty, including yoga for seniors. You can also do yoga for seniors at a Beginner or Non-Beginner level. In addition, these same classes are excellent for those starting or re-starting yoga. Read on to see why. Alternatively, just try Flametree’s in-studio or online yoga classes for seniors (aka senior citizens), and others.
First, the specialist Non-Beginner Only yoga class for Seniors is called “Fifty Plus Focus”. The class teaches easy, non-beginner poses that are entirely suitable for those with the typical situations of the Fifty Plus age group.
Persons who are not yet 50 are also welcome to join the class.
As a non-beginner class, the Fifty Plus Focus class has a range of students who have been doing yoga for years, many of whom have an impressive range of yoga skills.
Yoga for seniors
Second, if you are a beginner, the best option to get started is to attend some of the many Beginner Level classes mentioned below. For example, we outline the types of classes we have for any beginners, as well as those beginners over 50, and for seniors (depending how you see yourself).
In particular, for both beginners and non-beginners, we recommend our so-called Open Level classes. These include Gentle Yoga, Back Neck & Shoulder Yoga, Restorative Yoga For Heart Health, and the Women Only Class on Female Health. (This latter class also includes a lot of Restorative Yoga).
Once beginners have done at least 6 weeks at that level, they can then also attend this Fifty Plus Focus class. They can also continue to come to the above Open Level classes, as can anyone else.
In all Flametree’s classes, poses are also further customised for particular situations. The teacher will always adjust any class for who is actually in the class on the day. In addition, individual adaptations of poses are given as required.
All classes are both online and in the Flametree Yoga studios in Darwin Australia.
Huge benefits of yoga over 50, for seniors, & anyone
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 Healthy Ageing”).
In addition, if you plan to maximise your so-called “health span”, or longevity, or both, than there is a lot of evidence on how can help.
Many believe that once they reach a certain age yoga is beyond them. That’s a key reason why Flametree offers you the range of yoga class options already mentioned. At almost any age, you can do your first time at yoga.
As well as all that, yoga has a great deal to offer the mature or senior person.
As the famous yoga instructor Geeta Iyengar noted:
“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”.
For students of all levels, yoga will make a huge contribution to your mental health, and physical health.
In a large number of Flametree classes, yoga props are used. For instance, chairs, blocks, and bolsters are used to help you feel your body. They also make the poses easier and more enjoyable. However, the yoga poses are still highly beneficial, with as much challenge as you choose to put into them.
The classes have both active and restorative poses in them. As a result, they will leave feeling like you have stretched out your spine, got less anxious, and more relaxed.

Yoga for seni0rs secure procedures for online classes
Almost all Flametree classes both online and in-studio. Only the teacher can be seen by students.
You and the teacher can see and hear each other, so the teacher can give you one the spot guidance. If they wish, the student can also turn off their video, so not even the teacher can see you.
Classes are done on Zoom. If you wish, Flametree’s Customer Service team can help you with the very easy set up to initially get started.
Flametree uses a very secure and safe process for the online parts of this class. Students are first registered in Flametree’s online reservation 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.
