Yoga May Help With Dementia Patients

July 7, 2014, 6:30 PM by Brittany Larson

Yoga May Help With Dementia Patients
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

This holistic approach to exercise focuses on physical, mental and spiritual practices, but most importantly breathing.

"Breathing and letting go of the past, setting aside the future and just enjoying the moment," Yoga instructor Tam Baker said.

Several moments of meditation took place during today's class called Gentle Yoga. It's geared for everyone of all ages.

"If you can breathe then you can do yoga, we have had people in class including myself who have had lots of birthdays and we are still able to get down on the floor and we're able to get back up," Baker said.

Sharon Issenhuth has been practicing yoga for several years.

"It's an exercise that's really good for me and it helps me with my physical ailments and the camaraderie of the group, we are a great support group for one another," Yoga participant Sharon Issenhuth said.

Meditation and yoga may also play a role in helping those with dementia and their caregivers. The study found that people with dementia generally don't exercise but it doesn't have to be that way.

"I'm sure that if demotion patients can be communicative with and understand it can be very helpful," Baker said.

While practicing yoga there are several things you can do for your body but the most challenging of them all is actually staying present within the moment.

It's very challenging, but people with practice can do it and find that it's very beneficial, just to be quiet and to breath and when thoughts start coming in breath them away.

"I feel like my muscles aches and pains are lessened and I do feel more at ease and at peace with the world," Issenhuth said.

A time to devoted to peace and clarity to help you get through your busy day.
