Memory Maintenance with Lynette Kozuma in Bremerton
Nov 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $50
Dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease are on the rise. More than 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. That is 1 in 8 people! By the time you begin to show symptoms of cognitive impairment, you’ve actually been living with the disease 20 years!
There is good news! No matter your age, early intervention is key!
New breakthroughs in understanding brain function, neurogenesis, neuroplasticity and advances in functional and energy medicine are showing promising results. As well, lifestyle practices including yoga and meditation are key to brain health, improving memory, cognitive function and preventing Alzheimer’s and dementia.
In this workshop series we will:
- Review recent studies and learn more about the important link between yoga and brain health.
- Practice gentle asana and pranayama that benefit brain health. Experience sensory awareness and improved brain health through mantra, meditation and mudras.
- Deeply relax, down-regulate the body and strengthen the immune system with restorative postures and yoga nidra.
This workshop is accessible to everyone and everybody. Props will be used and chair options will be available for those who need it.
Two Saturday Sessions.
Date: November 2nd
Time: 2:00 – 5:00 pm
About the instructor: Lynette Kozuma
Lynette came to yoga after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the age of 32. Searching for more natural ways to heal her body from debilitating pain, a friend suggested she try yoga – and she was instantly hooked. Lynette loved the way the physical practice of yoga could be adapted to suit her individual body’s needs, which, over time, helped her regain mobility and relief from pain. Eager to learn more, she began what is now a 20+ year journey into the study and practice of yoga asana, yoga philosophy, pranayama, meditation and Yoga Nidra. Many classes, workshops, trainings and retreats later, Lynette knew it was her dharma to share the gift of yoga with others. In 2015 she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program with Colleen Hieber, Melissa Christensen and Aileen Pham at Spectra Yoga. She completed her 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training in June 2018 with Courtney Parkyn, Megan Bello, Liz Heffernan & Alison Scola through Soma Yoga Institute and Better Living Yoga.
Lynette believes that yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, fitness level, injuries, or conditions. Recognizing that no two bodies are the same, she takes an adaptive approach to teaching, creating space for students to discover and embrace their uniqueness and approach their yoga practice in an authentic way that supports their individual needs. Her intention is to compassionately meet each student where they are and support them on their individual journey to a deeper connection with body, breath and spirit so they may fully experience the many beautiful healing benefits of yoga. Lynette holds RYT 500 from Yoga Alliance.
