Senior’s Yoga for Healthy Joints

A series of yoga classes designed to address the challenges of continuing or introducing yoga practice for senior joints.  The goal is to strengthen and stabilize the structures that support joints while mitigating risk. This extended class will move at a gentle pace and will use props (chairs, blocks, blankets, towels and straps) and creative adjustments to suit the older body. There will be opportunity for discussion and sharing experiences of what works – or not.

Wear comfortable clothes, bring water and if possible, a small blanket or throw and cushion.

The three classes will address knees, hips and shoulders.

Sign up for 1, 2, or all 3 classes. Each session is 90 minutes and includes:

  • warm-up
  • seated chair poses and seated floor poses
  • standing poses: using wall/chair for stability and support
  • kneeling and lying poses
  • restorative poses and closing relaxation
