“You are not too old, and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out it’s own sweet secret.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
I am drawn to the easy laughter and life experience that Seniors bring. They are often willing to share their stories and their viewpoints. My teaching practice embraces those experiences and laughter by bringing Yoga to Seniors.
Seniors – especially those who struggle with osteoporosis and mobility issues – can find that yoga will bring increased strength, circulation, and flexibility. A regular yoga practice can improve your balance, lung capacity, clarity of mind and sense of calm. Classes offer you the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who share your desire to improve your health and enjoy a recharged vitality.
“You have the ability to practice yoga no matter what your physical limitations. All you need is a willingness to begin.”
What to expect in a yoga class?
- Classes are structured to allow for individualized adjustments and to build a supportive environment among the students.
- You will need to bring your own mat, towel, small blanket and small pillow (if desired).
- Most props are provided (chair, blocks, straps, bolsters) but you may want to purchase your own for use at home.
Classes begin with focused breath work followed by gentle movements to warm-up the spine and joints. All postures can be done from a chair. We will practice a variety of postures; some sitting, some standing and some laying on our back. All classes are gentle and restorative in nature.
