UPDATE (October 2018): This class is no longer offered. However, if you are interested, please contact me and we might reinstate it!
From 14 February 2018, we will be offering a slow yoga class especially for those of mature age (59+). You might have read that “Yoga is for everyone and every age”. That includes higher age!
I am passionate about yoga and thus I would like to present you with an opportunity to benefit from yoga even if you feel that things are not as easy as they used to be when it comes to movement.
In this class we still focus on different areas of the body to develop a sensitivity to bring about change in body posture BUT at a slower pace. As we age, we tend to neglect some muscle groups and to adopt some postures which over time give us grief. I have seen time and again that yoga can reverse those negative changes and bring back vitality and rigor.
Also, if you have health problems like osteoarthritis, scoliosis, shoulder, back, knee problems or would simply like to be able to get down to the floor and back up again (!) … that would be the right class for you. As you probably know, alignment of the muscle-skeleton body can influence habits: how we stand, walk and sit. An aligned body can alleviate pain. Basically, we work on the body and breathing to bring it slowly back into an equilibrium. The goal is that you wrestle less with daily activities and life becomes more harmonic and joyful.
I have a yoga student that told me that at age 79 she is able to do things that she thought she could never do again when she was 69 years old. What will be your story?
