Yoga Therapy for seniors


Ageing is a natural process that cannot be prevented and is characterized by declining physical performance that impairs different facets of the life and sense of wellbeing. Although old age is inevitable, it can be made more bearable. The branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and problems specific to the aged is called geriatrics. Geriatrics is termed as Rasayanatantra according to Ayurveda and anti ageing therapy is called Rasayanachikitsa. The vulnerability of older persons to disease and complications is to be kept in mind always. The lifespan of man, in general, has increased, and all need the high-quality living and good health to be a part of the older years. The susceptibility to ailments is linked to ageing, and, as a result, they tend to move less. The less they move, the more susceptible they become to a variety of ailments, and so it becomes a truly vicious cycle of ill health and disease. People fail to make the connection between undertaking healthy behaviors today and the impact of these choices later in life. Studies indicate that healthy eating, physical activity, mental stimulation, active social engagement, maintaining a safe environment, social support, and regular health care are important. Promoting the healthy lifestyles of older people is vital in helping them to maintain health and lead healthy, happy and independent lives.
