Optimum Health for Midlife and Beyond
We’re delighted to have Linda Karl back as a guest instructor for this exciting new workshop! Midlife in America is changing. Men and women from the ages of 40 through 70-something are becoming more aware of the lifelong benefits and represent the largest population growth segment for yoga.
Prime of Life Yoga® is for those who want a yoga somewhere between a fast vinyasa flow and chair yoga. POLY offers an accommodating approach to yoga covering everyday biomechanics, management of common aches and pains and stress reduction. This breath-centered practice includes meditation and emphasizes practicing yoga according to one’s individual needs and capacity rather than achieving a perfect form. The postures used in this style lend themselves to various levels of challenge, making them accessible to practitioners at a broad range of levels. This workshop will cover discussion, yoga practice, guided pranayama (breathwork), and meditation. Please pre-register to let us know you’ll be attending!
(Yoga teachers registered with the Yoga Alliance can receive 2 hours of CEUs).
$30 if registered by April 11! ($40 after)|
