Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can seniors do yoga? I thought it is meant for the young and flexible.
It is a misconception that only the young and flexible can practice yoga. On the contrary, yoga is most prescribed by medical doctors as a safe and effective way to get fit and healthy for seniors.

2. I have a minor surgery on my spine/knee/arm/leg/foot, can I still join the class?
Do consult your doctor, let them know the nature of the class, it is most likely that they will say ok.

3. What is the minimum and maximum age?
Minimum age is 50. There is no maximum age as long as you do not need special assistance to move around.
