YOGA FOR SENIORS ........
YOGA FOR EVERYBODY
“Last week, one of my girls, Karen, brought in this interesting article about yoga for seniors. I thought it was so unique that I told her that I thought it could help a lot of people and that she should share it with you in hopes that you might spread the word about it for seniors as well!” Rachel
Thank you Karen and Rachel. We couldn’t agree more.

(Rachel is a volunteer in an after school education program. In preparation for their annual Grandparent Appreciation Day, where the children invite their grandparents to come for an afternoon to receive special awards, play games, and participate in other fun activities they discussed exercise as one of the things that are important for everyone at any age and because of it, they came across our web page while they talked about it and looked up information about it online.)

The Invocation to Patanjali
To the noblest of sages, Patanjali
Who gave Yoga for serenity of mind,
Grammar for purity of speech,
And Medicine for perfection of the body, I bow.
I prostrate before Patanjali,
Whose upper body has a human form,
Whose arms hold a conch and disc,
Who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra,
O incarnation of Adisesa, my salutations to Thee.
Yogena cittasya padena vacam
Malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
Yopakarottam pravaram muninam
Patanjalim pranjalir anato'smi
Sankha carkrasi dharinam
Sahasra sirasam svetam
