Yoga…Designed for Aging Bodies + Minds

with Maureen Rae, RN, E-RYT, YACEP
Sunday, October 29
1:30 - 5:00 pm

Maureen chats a bit about this workshop!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA3bpeRaiCM

It was THE WHO who famously declared: “Hope I die before I get old!” and never before have aging generations embraced this adage! Getting Old...Who Wants It?! Fitness and Yoga professionals are reporting a huge surge in the number of active seniors attending classes. We are faced with instructing ages from 50-90! And all in the same class! Students are educated, and they want to be physically active as a deterrent to some of the realities of older age.  The focus of our time together will be to explore:
• safe and effective poses, and pose sequences;
• fun props, chairs for those students who need them; and
• breathing techniques that are appropriate for this age group.

We will also discuss loneliness, feelings of isolation and of being unloved, and how connection with the group can help. According to an Amsterdam-based study of the elderly, reported in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry in 2013, “Loneliness increases the risk of dementia in older adults by as much as 64%.”

Restorative Yoga                 Aaaaaah!                                            with Anita Iacoucci, RYT                                                               4 Fridays Evenings - Sept. 29, Oct. 6/ 13/ 20                            6 - 7:30 pm                                                                                      

Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props.

The use of props encourages relaxation and release of muscular tension. Ultimately stress-busting and calming.

Do you need more coffee or something sweet to get through your day? Do you keep saying yes to things when you really want to say no? Is there no end in sight of the things on your plate?  

Stress is everywhere and often out of our control.  Days, weeks and months fly by and you feel like you are on a treadmill without a control switch. You find yourself having difficulty concentrating, having a harder time making decisions, unable to sleep, gaining weight around the belly and frankly not feeling very happy.  Let’s change that.

There are solutions to help with stress both internally and externally and that is what we will discuss.

Learn:                                                                                              -  how to say no –  effective strategies for boundaries              -  what is going inside when you are stressed                    -  solutions and tools to help you in times of stress

Start thriving! Get your energy and happy self back.
