Ageless Yoga – Online
with John Schlorholtz, E-RYT 500
April 10 - 11, 2021
Join John Schlorholtz to experience the practice of Ageless Yoga, an approach to Hatha Yoga that promotes increased body awareness and is accessible for all ages and physical conditions. Ageless Yoga offers a whole-body experience of subtle integration, flow, balance, and enhanced resilience. John’s creative, flowing, and relaxed approach invites any body to participate. While promoting spaciousness and integrity of muscles, joints, and breath, John also cultivates subtle physical awareness, deep rest, inner quiet, and good humor.
This online workshop will consist mostly of experiential Hatha classes that will include both chair Yoga and Yoga without chairs. Time for questions and discussion will be included after the class experience.
People of any age who are interested in exploring subtle nuances of body and breath are welcome to participate. Yoga and exercise instructors may learn useful techniques and information about working with seniors and populations who might not easily fit into regular classes.
The workshop may not be appropriate for individuals with severe injuries or disabilities. Please contact [email protected] if you have questions regarding the workshop’s suitability for you.
Live sessions with John on Saturday at 9–11 am and 2–4 pm and Sunday 9–11 am ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until June 6.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

John teaches with humor and authenticity. His program is comfortably accessible to all ages and levels of experience. I found “Ageless Yoga” with John validated much of what I have been teaching to my senior population, and I learned a host of new techniques to share with my students. Highly recommended! — Barbara Gemershausen
Really enjoyed this class, specifically, the open discussion and sharing of information as a group. I received a lot of new tools for my ageless classes. I loved John’s sense of humor, sharing of knowledge, and chanting! — Nancy Peck
John’s approach to Yoga asana is gentle, freeing, and effective. The techniques taught in this workshop are going to benefit my personal practice and those of all of my students. — Claudette Lewis
Although my purpose in participating in this program was to be better skilled in assisting the aging population, I actually received great guidance in keeping myself in better shape. I am freer in my body just from these few days. It was such an enjoyable experience, and I recommend it to everyone. — Shraddha Sweeney
