In 2003, Frank and Serpil Iszak recognized a need for a different type of yoga that would meet the special health needs of seniors, and a new style of yoga was born.  UCSD’s Stein Institute for Research on Aging has supported the Iszak’s approach to senior yoga through research showing the positive benefits to seniors. 

In response to a nation-wide demand from yoga teachers wanting to learn more about teaching seniors, an online advanced certification course was developed to teach Silver Age Yoga to registered yoga instructors. Once these instructors successfully completed the online certification course, they were given the opportunity to join the Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach program and to teach at a sponsored center. Simultaneously, senior centers were solicited as venues to offer these specialized yoga classes to their constituency at no cost to the seniors.
