Because we here at Freedom Home Care understand the importance of balance and posture for seniors, we have been hosting a weekly chair yoga class at the Homestead at Morton Grove. Each week, one of our RNs, who is also a licensed massage therapist, has led the class. And each week, residents have expressed gratitude for having the opportunity to participate in one of the world’s most popular ways to increase balance, flexibility and circulation and improve posture and overall health.
To learn more about the yoga classes, contact Freedom Home Care or the folks at the Homestead at Morton Grove. In the meantime, we thought that we would post the following video from the Stronger Seniors YouTube channel. Hosted by Anne Pringle Burnell, who presented her exercise theories at the 2010 National Council on Aging’s Annual Convention in Chicago, the video offers simple yoga movements that just about anyone can do at home.
