Strong and Wise: Yoga for Aging Populations at Seattle Yoga Arts
Oct 21, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - Oct 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm| $155.00
The yoga population is aging, and aging well. Older students who practice yoga tend to have fewer injuries, heal more quickly, and maintain more optimal movement.
Denise and Wendy, who are both in their 60’s (gasp!) have seen their own practices change as they have aged. Denise: “Although I can’t do the more extreme poses I could do when I was young (and don’t really want to), I feel more integrated, more balanced between strength and flexibility, and more at home in my body than I ever have.”
If you are a yoga teacher, you may have noticed more older students coming to your classes. In this workshop you will learn from two seasoned instructors who together have practiced yoga for decades!
We will explore how age can influence:
- Osteoporosis and osteopenia
- Chronic pain
- High blood pressure
- Depression and loneliness
- Arthritis and joint pain
This workshop is open to anyone and is part of Seattle Yoga Art’s 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training.
