Not only is it a healthy exercise, yoga can be used therapeutically to help people maintain their flexibility and mobility as they get older and it can alleviate many conditions like stress, back ache, sciatica and arthritis. The breathing exercises (pranayama) encourage better utilisation of the lungs and respiratory system.
I run short therapeutic yoga courses for small groups of students in Chard. Class sizes are small so I can provide personal attention and adapt poses to meet the personal needs of each individual student.
