Thai Yoga for Wellbeing
Thirty-nine healthy, yet sedentary, adults over the age of 60 engaged in either Thai yoga or telephone counselling for ninety minutes a week for twelve weeks.
Welcome to the weekend...the last one of November! If you fancy trying a different form of yoga this weekend, may we suggest Thai yoga? It really is a very connecting and beautiful practice. The researchers who have conducted this recent randomised controlled trial on Thai yoga's potential to improve physical function and well-being in older adults would definitely agree!
Thirty-nine healthy, yet sedentary, adults over the age of 60 engaged in either Thai yoga or telephone counselling for ninety minutes a week for twelve weeks. They were assessed at baseline, six, 12 weeks, and 3 months after the completion of the regimen. After 12 weeks, vitality and enjoyment significantly improved in the Thai yoga group compared to the telephone counselling group among other measures. Researchers concluded that these findings suggest that older adults can make significant improvements in their health and well-being by engaging in low intensity Thai yoga. Pretty cool we think :)
Have a very blessed weekend everyone.
