Yoga for Dementia seeks to help those living with dementia, their families and carers access simple and joyous yoga-based practices. These practices seek to help you improve cognitive processes and well-being. They also help to improve physical fitness, deal with anger, develop meaningful relationships and help you enjoy life moment to moment.
Through many years working with people with all stages of dementia, including a 18 month funded trial we have developed is a wealth of practices specifically tailored for those living with dementia. As well as helping those living with dementia these yoga based practices are also great for carers and family members.
We aim to help serve this community by providing up to date information and resources about the benefits of yoga for dementia here on our website and our Facebook Page.
If you sign up to our free newsletter we also provide regular updates include free resources and practices.
Tania has also written a book which contains yoga sequences, breathing exercises and meditations. This book shows care home staff and family carers how to use yoga to help people with dementia reduce the negative effects of their symptoms. The programme can be used with both individuals and groups, and can adapted for a range of abilities. For more info on the book click here.
We believe that the best way of integrating a yoga program into private homes and residential care environments is to have yoga available on a daily bases. To facilitate this we offer bespoke training courses for care home staff, individuals and groups.
