Yoga for Aging Bodies
This type of practice varies and is dependent on the individual and his or her needs. Regardless, extra care is taken in terms of alignment and ensuring safe movement for typically vulnerable areas in the body as it ages, ie: knees, neck, spine.
In some cases, strengthening may be appropriate, ie: in cases of osteoporosis or osteopeneia where bone density needs to be increased. In other cases, stretching and releasing may be the best option. And in others, it could be a combination of both and may also include breathing practices and/or meditation.
Stretch & Strength Yoga
As with any private or small group, instruction is tailored to whomever is on the mat. This type of practice generally combines strengthening poses as well as those with longer holds in order to find a deeper stretch and release. The session will provide both physical challenge as well as opportunity to relax and unwind.
Yoga for Inner Peace
A practice that is well suited to anyone living in our busy times. This approach to yoga may include breathing practices, meditation, yoga postures with long holds and/or restorative yoga where the body is supported with props so that deep relaxation may follow.
This type of practice has a profound positive effect on the nervous system and facilitates the process of stress relief and healing of body/mind/spirit on a deep level.
