Older Adults & People with Dementia

We deliver yoga and ‘Mindful Movement’ sessions to older adults living in Kirklees, and people with Dementia.

We partner with other organisations to ensure maximum uptake and reach.  The yoga sessions provide a much-needed opportunity for people to maintain strength and mobility by moving and stretching in an accessible and achievable way.  

 

The sessions promote group cohesion and enable people to feel connected to one another.  Some feedback from our participants at the Early Onset Dementia group include “I really enjoy the stretching and it helps my flexibility”.  

 

A volunteer who supports the group said “The yoga is a great way to bring the group together. It’s lovely to see involvement even from those that have difficulty coordinating, it’s very beneficial for us all”.
