About Move It or Lose It! Gentle Exercise & Chair Yoga

What is Gentle Yoga?
Gentle yoga classes are going to be accepting of beginners and people who have limited mobility, as well as being beneficial to all levels. They may include meditation. They are intended to be slow paced, gentle, calming and aim to reduce stress and aid mobility. If you have been intimidated by more athletic yoga styles or are looking for a way to unwind and reduce stress, you may want to explore gentle yoga. Also, gentle yoga is suited to those who are used to a faster pace and want to learn how to slow down.

What is Move it or Lose it?
Move it or Lose it is an exercise class designed for those age 50+ and over , or those with limited mobility and a need for gentle exercise. Attending a Move it or Lose it class is great fun and as much a social event as a fitness class. It will help you stay fit, motivated and active for life as well as helping with maintaining flexibility, mobility, aerobic fitness, balance and strength.The exercises have been created in partnership with the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at Birmingham University to help “turn back the clock” and help maintain independence.The exercises can be done standing, seated on a chair or standing with chair support and can be adapted to meet your needs with less repetitions or lower resistance.

What is Chair Yoga?
Seniors or those who have mobility issues avoid unnecessary movements due to fear of falling or injuring themselves. With limited movements, the limbs get stiff reducing the range of motion causing aches and pains in the limbs. Fortunately, with awareness of yoga practices spreading wide, those with mobility issues too can benefit from this practice through the introduction of Chair Yoga.

Benefits of Chair Yoga:

stretching the muscles, to reduce pain and stiffness.
improves blood circulation to keep the body fresh and active.
keeps control of the blood pressure.
improves the range of motion of the joints, keeping the symptoms of arthritis in control.
Helps lift mood – reducing anxiety
improves balance and coordination.
