YOGAZEIT. Good for your body. Good for your mind. Good for you!
Since YOGAZEIT started offering Chair Yoga at Opal Aged Care I’m feeling so much better. The classes are fun and interactive and the exercises help me a lot with my posture and daily activities. Regina’s guided relaxations at the end of class are very nurturing. I can highly recommend Yogazeit!
AMAZING! I learned so much in these 5 hours! Regina is an inspiration and I can’t wait to start teaching my new chair yoga skills at Aged Care. Highly recommended!
PROJECT INTERZEN – Bringing Generations together with Mindful Movement
Yogazeit supports mental and physical Health and Wellness for the Young and Young at Heart.
Since 2017 we’re running Intergenerational Yoga and Mindfulness Programs in the Community and Aged Care.
Working in collaboration with our partners, such as Playgroup WA, Buds’n’Blooms, Act Belong Commit and Aged Care Facilities and local councils – we love bringing the joy of Mindfulness and Movement to generations.
Facilitated by a skilled and passionate Yoga Educator with a background in Children’s AND Seniors Yoga, our Team guides older adults and children through accessible “Yoga Time”.
The program usually involves:
– Breathing activities to help combat stress and anxiety as well as expand lung capacity
– Movement to support physical health, cardiovascular health, strength and endurance (Seniors are mostly based in a chair, while the children move and stretch on the floor or on mats)
– Relaxation and Mindfulness to support healthy sleep patterns and nervous system responses.
– Music! This program is fun, engaging and interactive! We make your hearts smile! Promise!
Intergenerational Mindful Movement is a wonderful tool to support older adults diagnosed with Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, Joint Replacements or any other ageing ailment.
Accessible – Inclusive – Fun!
Supporting mental, physical and social Health and Wellness – one Breath at a time.
Our Intergenerational Programs rely on funding and support. If you’re interested in supporting our cause or wish to run an Intergenerational Class or Program at your Aged Care or Community, please get in touch!
