I am happy to return to the Breathing Project this Wednesday with my new and improved yoga class: “Ageless on the Mat – Yoga For Midlife and More . . . “. Thank you all for your name suggestions. Your creativity clearly inspired me! I hope to see you this week, and looking forward to reconnecting and catching up!
This lunchtime yoga class is geared towards those of us forty and over seeking a yoga class that is fun, relaxing and non-competitive while at the same time balancing stretching with strengthening yoga poses. Connecting yoga postures and movements with mindful breath awareness, allows you to flow at your own pace, so that asanas can be held without any tension. Core strengthening abdominal exercises – often ignored in yoga classes – are conducted with a mini-stabilization ball to prevent any neck or upper back tension. Back strengthening poses – also important for those of us in our “wisdom years” – are balanced with gentle spinal twists. We conclude class with a short meditation and extended savasana (relaxation pose), enhanced with organic essential oils to create deep states of relaxation and peacefulness.
If you’ve been looking for a yoga class to experience the physical and mental benefits of yoga, without having to contort your body into a pretzel, then please come and join us.
