Balance for Life with Alison

NEW 4-WEEK SERIES! 

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. 

 

We work gently to increase strength in shoulders, back, hips and legs; to develop better balance through a number of “foundational” exercises and yoga postures, while building core and breath awareness. The class ends with an extended guided relaxation for an overall sense of well-being. 

This gentle yoga balance practice will be done with a sequence of both sitting and standing postures, using the chair, wall and blocks as props. 

To gain maximum benefit, it is recommended that you attend all four classes in the series, as one class will build on the previous class.

Each 60-minute class 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.
