Seniors are a natural part of the worldwide interest in learning about and practicing yoga. Some people over 55 have been practicing for decades, and others are picking it back up after years of absence. Still others are finding asana practice for the first time.
This creates a challenge for yoga teachers to develop their understanding of the body’s systems as they relate to students who are older. Better knowledge of joint systems, proprioception and balance, blood pressure and how to work with osteoporosis and osteopenia will help teachers safely instruct their senior students.
This intensive will cover the yoga poses and breathing practices that create a smart, safe, and effective practice to restore and sustain healthy, nourishing movement. You will learn to foster body awareness and the importance of mobility as a way of putting less pressure on the organ system as a whole.
