Well, look at me! I actually have a blog!
This will be a short one. I am starting this blog because I was encouraged to do so. I am in the process of putting together a yoga practice that will be beneficial specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. I have done quite a bit of research and there doesn’t seem to be anything like this. As I learn more about the progression of the disease, and figure ways to better communicate yoga to these individuals, I’ll post my findings here. This information will be beneficial not only to yoga teachers, but anyone who has contact with individuals with this condition. Just because a person has dementia or Alzheimer’s doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have a good quality of life for as long as possible.
By being able to better communicate, these students will be introduced to all the benefits of a yoga practice, including increased mobility, better balance, and a sense of peace and well-being – if even only for a while.
I’m looking forward to this journey. Wish me luck!
Be well. Namaste.
