Yoga for Healthy Aging: An Intergenerational Approach

Intergenerate!
Don’t segregate!
I’ve always loved connecting meaningfully with people of different generations. In my 20s I created a successful counseling program for older adults. I was a bit audacious to be a “young” counselor of “older” adults, and yet the experience was beautiful and rewarding all around.
In this photo you see the peer counselors that I trained in that program with my friend Kathy at University of Arizona. One of my areas of research emphasis was gerontology and counseling . That’s me on the right on the monkey bars. 🙂
Today, in my zoom Sunday class moms and daughters and dads from all over the country practice yoga with me.
And often in prenatal yoga students bring their moms to class.

Are you regularly connecting with individuals who are not your peers in an equalized relationship?

Not as your patient but as a human sharing earth right now? What can you do to interact with humans who have lived and are living at a different life stage than you? I’d love to hear your ideas.
