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 physcial breath and postures to calm the mind, balance the body, and cultivate self-awareness. 

The practice guides students through:
* Simple techniques to re-establish a healthy, diaphragmatic breath.
* Slow, gentle, preparatory movements (mat level, not standing) that open the major joints and muscles of the body and maintain a moment by moment awareness, as they are synchronized with the breath.
* Gentle postures that promote a healthy spine and improve posture, balance, and breathing.
* Postures that gently strengthen muscles and promote functional range of motion of the joints, creating a balance of strength and flexibility.
*Mediation to rest in the stillness of being, and find peace within.

**Yoga props are incorporated and a thick mat (for under your own) is provided to facilitate comfort, ease, and safety. Classes are taught in a small group format (8 students max.) and offered in six-week sessions.
