Post subject: *Aches & Pains- come to Therapeutic Yoga Monday
|Monday 11:00 a.m. 1 hour class at the Community Center.
Monday Therapeutic Yoga will continue through August.
The bottom line (in case you don't want to read the rest) YOGA works! Not just coming one time, but with just one class many participants have felt a difference in joint mobility. You will learn the poses so you can do these at home. It's only an hour of your day- worth checking it out. Along with practicing, we have fun! Come join us and see.
Donation of $10.00 to the Community Center will ensure we can continue our second year of this program. No person will be refused the class if the amount isn't in your budget.
This specialty class normally would cost $20.00 + in a group session.
* Participants should consult their medical provider for approval to participate. With any new physical activity added to your routine it is advisable to speak with your medical provider.
* Be able to stand up for short periods of time (a chair will be available for support).
* Modification of all poses will be used. Moving to the mat for some poses is optional.
* All yoga poses can be done in a chair or using the wall for support.
* Although Yoga has a strong philosophy/spiritual component, we will ONLY be focusing on the physical poses.
* Yoga Mats and props are supplied.
* Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of class.
Therapeutic Yoga – This class is designed for the aging individual who may be on medications, recovering from an injury or have limited mobility, post surgical and wanting to gain strength and flexibility, and those that are ready to start incorporating an exercise program that moves at your own pace. All poses are modified for therapeutic classes.
** Class size is limited and only offered to those that require chair/wall support, health conditions, knee / hip replacement, post surgical, and the aging adult wanting to incorporate mild physical activity into their life.
If you are unsure what yoga program to attend please call Lisa.
Learn to protect and strengthen the joints of the body to experience renewed movement with ease and joy. Suggestions will be made and poses implemented with the support of props and chairs to accommodate dysfunctional joints due to injury, aging issues, etc. Explore holding poses as we gradually apply load to the joints to increase strength and balance. Care will be taken to balance both strength and relaxation to develop a functional and happy body. Class also focuses on the ability to recruit the core muscles for balance poses. Class will focus on the alignment of the joints, posture and most importantly, the spine.
Therapeutic Yoga will focus on the breath and work towards healing the body from the inside out.
