Session One: Strengthening Bones, Strengthening Muscles
Muscle and bone strength are equally important for healthy aging, to support a quality health span. Lack of strength can prevent us from doing what we love. Learn exactly how to optimize yoga practice to build both bone and muscle strength and prevent further loss. Yoga requires no heavy equipment, and can be practiced anywhere.
Session Two: Yoga for Improving Balance
Your balance ability depends upon multiple factors. With aging, our balance systems can deteriorate. Fortunately, Yoga practice improves balance for fall prevention. Yoga also provides the stress and anxiety management tools for empowerment and acceptance. Learn how to safely practice and improve your balance with this specialized workshop.
Who should attend: Those interested in learning how yoga can be employed for wellness and a quality “health span”. Workshop is appropriate for relatively healthy and physically able participants. The sessions and practices will not specifically include chair yoga, although chair options will be provided. Medical advice for individual conditions also not included.
