Relax into Yoga for Seniors:
Skillful Practices to Honor Aging Bodies
As we age, it’s common to face issues such as hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain, and more. Yoga is beneficial for all of these age-related ailments and can lead to greater flexibility, balance, and overall well-being. Yet surprisingly, some commonly-taught yoga postures may pose risks to older adults, which means it’s vital that seniors study with an experienced, qualified instructor.
After training yoga professionals to make yoga practices more accessible to older adults for over a decade, Kimberly and Carol are offering weekend workshops where older adults can experience their evidence-based approach, Relax into Yoga for Seniors. Developed in collaboration with experts at Duke University Medical Center, this pioneering program safely and effectively adapts yoga practices for older bodies, minds, and hearts.
In this weekend workshop, you will
- Explore how to safely integrate the tools of yoga including postures, breathing, meditation and principles to support your well-being
- Experience a yoga practice that addresses your needs, enhances health, and increases vitality
- Learn important movement considerations for older bodies to reduce the risk of injury and cultivate ease
