Yoga for Older Adults
Keep Moving, Reduce Pain with Gentle Yoga for Great Results
Graceful aging is achieved by staying active. Whether we are just getting off the couch, or have osteoporosis, high blood pressure, arthritis, metabolic syndrome, chronic pain, limited movement from MS or Parkinsons, etc., we need to keep moving and do so in a gentle and kind way. Keeping ourselves safe and healthy means choosing a class that does not over-stress our bodies. The best yoga class is one that improves our health, strength, and flexibility and prevents or improves any conditions that develop as our bodies age.
For students over 50, 60, and 70, many yoga poses should be modified, depending on our changing health. Lisa is certified in teaching yoga to seniors and will provide each student with a relaxing, yet challenging experience. Private classes are also available for those who prefer to individually draw on Lisa's expertise.

Private Yoga Instruction
Need some initial instruction prior to joining a class? Do you or a loved one have health concerns that require more attention to create a safe and not overwhelming practice at home? A private class is a great way to get initial instructions and to review the ways your health history may impact your yoga practice. Learning the modifications that are most helpful to you will make your class or home practice more beneficial and safe.

Lisa can provide a series of sessions which include an evaluation, recommendations for practice, instruction over several at home classes, and periodic check in and updates to your practice, leading you to an optimum personal yoga practice for health and spiritual progress.
