What is Gentle Yoga?

Gentle yoga is a slower style of practice that’s approachable for all ages and ability levels. The term “gentle yoga” actually refers to several different types of yoga that all can be considered low-impact and slower-paced. Gentle yoga poses involve traditional yogic movements that are performed carefully, which is what makes this practice ideal for seniors, people suffering from illness or chronic pain, or beginners who are new to yoga.


Gentle yoga stretches are typically less intense than you’d find in a vinyasa or power yoga class. The movement is intentional and slow, giving students time to pause, breath, and relax into each gentle yoga pose. Practicing gentle yoga sequences can offer some of the following benefits.



Who it’s for
  • Beginner to advanced yogis
  • Seniors
  • People with chronic pain
  • People with injuries or limited mobility


Who it’s not for
  • Gentle yoga is for everyone
How it will help you
  • Improves digestion
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Builds strength and flexibility
  • Calms the nervous system
  • Improves sleep patterns
  • Relieves stress and anxiety


How it will not help you
  • It is not a cardio-building workout
