WHEN ELDERS MEDITATE
When Elders Meditate is a free wellness program for senior citizens. Every two weeks, Fimo Mitchell guides participants through a meditation session that is followed by a time of sharing. A specialized yoga instructor is always on hand to offer 20 minutes of chair yoga after the meditation circle. When Elders Meditate aims to support the social participation and inclusion of seniors while fortifying their mental and physical health. To find out more about the program and how you can join, please contact us.
When Elders Meditate is funded by The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP).
Meditation has many physical and psychological benefits for older adults, including better focus, enhanced calmness, less stress, and improved sleep. Research shows that meditation can reduce depression and pain as well as boost emotional well-being.
Meditation can also help adults come to terms with the challenges of aging. It is associated with enhanced short and long-term memory. A recent study showed that it might even slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s.
