Greetings,

You have all pointed out many of the differences between Yoga classes for students who are 50 years of age and older. Wouldn't it be safe to say, there are significant differences between two people of the same age. As an example of this, you could have two women about 75 years of age who are in completely different health. One might require a walker or be in a wheel chair, while the other has a stride like a woman who is 30.

The one who is steady on her feet is likely to be a good fit for a class with yoga mats. As Steph pointed out there is room for much concern so the senior center takes the safest route. And most senior centers don't have the funds to accomodate both so they have one very basic chair yoga class.

Beside this some teachers can't teach meditation when there is a fight over the card tables or in the kitchen. Some teachers barely teach any pranayama at all. With that said, chair yoga is just starting to evolve because many cultures don't use them much. The chair yoga we see is a western outgrowth of an eastern idea.

Sincerely,

Lea
