Enhancing Balance for Fracture Prevention, Info here. Among its many benefits for body mind and spirit, yoga can help us to improve our balance. Especially for seniors, instability and lack of confidence with balance can impede daily activities and exercise. What causes us to have more trouble with balance as we age? What can we do to safely build skills for better balance?
In this course we discuss the three physiological mechanisms that contribute to balancing, and we highlight the importance of body alignment in yoga as an underpinning for good balance. We offer a sequence of practices that are accessible to any level of student. The course will provide yoga teachers with fresh ideas to offer students as part of a regular practice, and practical tips for anyone that are easy to integrate into your day.
Yoga for the Wrists and Ankles, The wrists and ankles play a big role in our yoga practice, but are often ignored as we focus on the bigger joints. Join us for a look at fun and effective stretches and strengtheners for the wrists and ankles. Practice videos are included.
