This course has been expertly geared to help us age comfortably and safely. I have taken many yoga classes over the years, but this one has been one of the most outstanding.
Sat Sept 22 - 9:00am-4:00pm with Leena
$110+hst (Lunch is included)
A fun and mindful day to learn about honing your balance, building strength for bone density, and improving functional movements like getting up and down from the floor, climbing stairs, carrying things, and walking.
The morning session will be focused on techniques and exercises for foot, ankle and hip strength. We’ll apply this learning to find more ease on stairs, to improve your balance, and to walking mindfully outdoors. Midday, we’ll have a simple and healthy catered lunch together. In the afternoon we’ll work on hip and shoulder mobility, discuss smart footwear considerations, and end the day with a rejuvenating Restorative Yoga practice.
We are all aging every day, so all ages are welcome! The exercises and movements throughout the day will be moderately paced with lots of time to ask questions. People of any fitness level, including brand new beginners are welcome.
*Please note our studio is on the 3rd floor without an elevator. We apologize for this barrier to accessibility.
I have been practicing my feet, ankle, and calf lifts from the course regularly and noticed on a recent trip that pain in my ankles and calves from walking on uneven surfaces for 4-6 hours a day was quickly alleviated by switching my shoes to a neutral heel. Thanks so much for all of the practical tips for strengthening the muscles in my legs to prevent and alleviate pain.
