Establishment of yoga classes for seniors in the Iziko Lobomi Community Centre


It is a holistic approach that has become very successful in Imizamo Yethu.

In many communities, including Imizamo Yethu, elderly people are respected and seen as rolemodels. At Ahim’SA we believe that the elders are key to spreading the word about the benefits of Yoga. It may be for health, fitness, mobility, rehabilitation or after physiotherapy, all of our classes bring so much to our participants. Participants learn how to release tension, improve balance, relax their mind and quiet their mental state.

Where participants are particularly frail or have debilitating injury, the class can be done using chairs, so that anybody can take part.

These classes give a feeling of wellbeing. The attendees feel positivity through doing something for themselves, their health and their mind. It is a holistic approach that has become very successful in Imizamo Yethu.
