Yoga for people with dementia
Exercise is healthy for everyone. It is extra important for people with dementia because it can slow down their decline. However, most caregivers have trouble getting this group to move. Chair Yoga has the solution, as you will find out in this book. It is easy to implement and can be practiced by almost anyone.
Chair Yoga has more benefits for elderly people with dementia than other forms of exercise, or even music therapy, according to recent research. Yoga does not only improve our physical wellbeing, but it also offers us a moment of calm and peace in the here and now. This mindfulness works wonders against depression, headaches, stress, and insomnia.
This book was written for exercise professionals who work with the elderly and for caregivers who want to safely exercise and relax with their loved ones. Paula Jap Tjong clearly demonstrates how to teach yoga in a way that fits the needs and capabilities of people with dementia.
