Description:
Proven to enhance wellbeing, posture, breathing and sleep, and reduce anxiety and agitation, this programme shows how yoga can be adapted to benefit people with dementia. Based on the findings of a pilot therapeutic yoga programme for people with dementia in care homes, this book offers substantial yoga sequences, breathing exercises, meditations and mindfulness exercises for improving symptoms associated with dementia. It offers an innovative reminiscence Yoga approach, which uses sounds, music, guided imagery and familiar actions to stimulate memories. The book also includes case studies which show the many benefits of yoga for people with dementia, and describes the ways that each yoga exercise can be adapted for people of different abilities.
