Wellness is the result of personal initiative, seeking a more optimal, holistic and balanced state of well being across five dimensions.  This class is designed to empower the Baby Boomer to move forward with greater wellness and well-being by creating a holistic experience that nourishes each dimension.  Historical yoga postures are evolved through application of current evidence-based knowledge to design a safe, effective and enjoyable practice.  A slow, gentle and mindful approach is utilized with a focus on the physical breath and postures to calm the mind, balance the body, and cultivate self-awareness. The practice guided the student through:

* Simple techniques to facilitate proper breathing & breath awareness

* Slow, gentle movement integrated with breath & body awareness

* Gentle postures that promote healthy spine & improve posture and balance.

* Postures that gently strengthen muscles and promote functional range of motion

​* Meditation to rest in the stillness of Being, & find the peace within

This gentle, yet challenging, practice is designed with the beginner level student in mind.  Yoga props are incorporated and a thick mat is provided to facilitate the comfort, ease, and safety of your practice.  Classes are taught in a small group format and offered in six-week sessions.
