Yoga for Healthy Aging

This class is designed for active 60+ students and includes poses that build strength, promote flexibility and agility as you age.  It is appropriate for students who may be less flexible, not so strong (or both), have a particular limitation, or would prefer a more slowly paced, less rigorous class.

Props are utilized, allowing access for all ages, body types, and levels of conditioning. All asanas create specific physiological responses that are beneficial to health, reduces the effects of stress and enhances overall well-being.

Back-care/Healthy Spine

This class focuses on postures that contribute to a healthy spine. We typically chose a particular region of the body or topic to focus on for several weeks and in this way address the whole body. This class includes specialized sequencing and specific alignment instructions  that alleviate discomfort, create ease and move towards balance.

The class is recommended for those with scoliosis, asymmetries, osteoporosis and minor back issues.

Pranayama

Pranayama is one of the 8 limbs of yoga. Prana is translated as breath, energy and life force. Cultivating awareness and refining the breath can lead to a positive presence to the rest of our day – from how we approach our work, daily tasks and how we relate to ourselves and others.

Students are introduced to basic pranayama practices through Ujaii breath, Viloma I & II and Brahmari.  Practioners with a firm foundation are guided towards further refinement and more advanced pranayamas are introduced.
