The concise yoga practice for senior citizens is meant for persons aged 60 years & above who have usually retired from their active life. The basic purpose of concise yoga practice is to remove lethargy of body & dullness of mind and to stay active. It can be practised daily for half an hour to one hour in early morning hours preferably in empty stomach.
The following asanas and pranayama can be practised as concise yoga practice:
1. A-kara, U-kara, M-kara, A-U-M Chanting
2. Cin Mudra, Cinmaya Mudra, Adi Mudra, Brahma Mudra
4. Nadi suddhi pranayama
5. Bhramari pranayama
The yoga session starts with recitation of prayer with mantras and shlokas about glorious manifestations of Universal Power and ends with wishing health, happiness and peace of the mankind.
After attending yoga classes meant for elderly persons for about 9 months in Dhrti Yoga Studio BTM 2nd Stage Bangalore under Qualified Director and Trained Yoga Instructor, I have developed the above concise yoga practice and practising the same since April 26, 2010 for more than 2 years as swadhyaya of yoga daily at home as a senior citizen.
