Healthy Ageing and Elderly Care through Ayurveda and Yoga
The classical text of Ayurveda, Ashtanga Hrdayam starts off its first chapter with the Quest for Longevity (AH Su,1). It recognises that as we get older our muscles tend to stiffen, our joints lose their range of motion and we become more susceptible to chronic problems such as osteoporosis, arthritis and heart disease. We also notice a lot of mental changes apart from the physical changes.
Ayurveda strongly advocates that health is the foundation and if the foundation is right, we can age gracefully. Furthermore, research shows that Caregivers experience stress and burnt-out while taking care of the elderly. At this workshop, you will learn the importance of ageing gracefully and self-care during the ageing process. You will also taught simple tips to manage stress and prevent burnout as well as a techniques of joint care for yourself and the elderly.
