Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead was recently awarded a £5,000 bursary to provide yoga and meditation programme for residents. After having “taster” sessions of the popular exercise, Marlborough Court has introduced an 18 month-long yoga programme, which will focus on teaching relaxing techniques that are suitable for older people and for those living with dementia. These weekly classes will see people enjoy meditation, controlled breathing and other gentle yoga techniques. The exercise’s health benefits are well-known, and will help people sleep better and retain their fitness, whilst remaining as supple and mobile as possible.
