Yoga for Active Aging

Yoga is a highly useful practice to integrate into our daily lives as we age.  Yoga will help build and maintain strength, flexibility and balance.  All of these physical elements are necessary to maintain agility and mobility as we age.


Breathe’s  new Yoga for Active Aging class is thoughtfully tailored for individuals aged 50 and above.  With regular practice you’ll be absolutely amazed at what your body will be able to do.

Yoga for Active Aging

Staying Strong, Vibrant and Healthy As We Age

A  MAJOR CULPRIT FOR LOSING OUR PHYSICAL ABILITIES as we grow older is the age-related loss of muscle mass and strength, Typically, muscle mass and strength increase steadily from birth and reach their peak at around 30 to 35 years of age. After that, muscle power and performance decline slowly and linearly at first, and then faster after age 65 for women and 70 for men. The really good news is that the decline of strength and power with aging can be substantially slowed down by maintaining an active lifestyle and staying strong and flexible.

YOGA IS A HIGHLY USEFUL PRACTICE to integrate into your daily life to build and maintain not only strength and flexibility to help with mobility, but also balance. Our new Yoga for Active Aging class is thoughtfully tailored for individuals aged 60 and above:

  • A mat-based yoga class specifically designed for people over 60
  • A supportive and uplifting class environment -Learn the fundamental principles of yoga and how they can support you through the stages of life
  • Strength training, balance and posture enhancement
  • Move at a slower pace
  • Learn modifications specific to your body, and use props to feel safe and supported
  • Accessible to beginners, and those with injuries or limited mobility***This is not a chair yoga class, it does require that participants can safely get up and down onto a yoga mat.
