with Bhavani Marcia Miller, E-RYT 500
As you age, you change—and so should your Yoga.
Whether you are a longtime practitioner or a beginner, this workshop will offer you ways to meet your changing body and life, just as you are, in a community of your peers.
Practices will include asanas that respect joints and chronic sore places while safely building strength, balance, suppleness, and stamina. You’ll focus on practices that are sustainable for aging bodies with youthful hearts. You’ll move all body parts each day and then rest deeply in poses that leave you feeling open, refreshed, and ready for the next adventure.
Using her years of therapeutic Yoga experience, Marcia will show you ways to care for your body, including meditation and breathing practices that bring clarity, attention, and integration.
Appropriate for people over 50 who want to continue caring for themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. You must be able to get on and off the mat (but it need not be graceful!)
