Course Description: A mindful yoga practice can teach you how to safely age with greater flexibility, strength, balance, and grace, both physically and psychologically. Studies have shown that yoga can help prevent much of the ill health, disability, and suffering that has been associated with aging. Mindfulness in posture and alignment, and awareness of these factors in daily living activities, along with critically important breathing and meditation tools will be emphasized within our practice. Relevant information about the body, the science of yoga, will also joyfully be taught and incorporated. Ability to get up and down from lying, seated and standing positions is essential to this mixed-level class where modifications for various needs will be given.
