Balance for Life with Alison

NEW! 

As we age it is more important than ever to take a proactive approach to our health, including working at improving our balance. Falls are more likely to occur as we get older, which can dramatically impact our quality of life. The good news is it is never too late to start maintaining and improving your body’s complex balancing systems! This safe and slower-moving class is designed for people who want to improve their balance but might have some physical challenges, be recovering from an injury, or just realize that their ability to balance has changed over time.

 

Yoga postures will be practiced with a sequence of both sitting and standing asanas, using a chair, the wall, and yoga blocks for props.

Your 90-minute workshop will include:

 

  • short meditation

  • discussion on the importance of balance and how to improve it

  • gentle yoga practice to improve strength in the back, hips, and legs

  • sequence of standing yoga postures to hone balance ability

  • skills to improve core connection and breath awareness

  • interactive conversation on the subject of Bringing Balance into Our Lives

  • extended guided relaxation for overall well-being 

 

All levels of experience welcome.
