Gentle Yoga for Healthy Aging
September 17th – October 22nd, 2020
Zoom with Ann * Thursdays at 10am
Explore the equilibrium between effort and ease during this accessible 60-minute group yoga class designed to connect mind, body, and spirit. Unleash joyful freedom during rhythmic movements linked with the breath…and find steady poise through stable alignment in classic poses.
Ann offers modifications so that participants of all levels and ages can benefit. This is a wonderful class for any individual who wants to stay strong, alert and active regardless of their age. We’ll also explore healthy aging topics such as joint health, strong bones, better balance, mental focus, improved posture, and more.
We need stable routine, and we need fellowship. Join our Gentle Yoga community for the entire fall session from September 17th-October 22th to receive specialized chair yoga feedback and personal practice tips each week. (Or drop in to individual classes as your schedule allows.)
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.Audrey Hepburn
Reminder: “Gentle” is a state of mind. It means we listen to our bodies and minds, and accept with compassion whatever we come across. While we may move at a gentler pace, and take extra care during transitions, we practice with all the effort of any other yoga class!
Age is not a disease. It’s a state to which we aspire. As we age, all kinds of things happen, like growing wiser and getting to know ourselves better, and developing gratitude for any level of health or fitness that we maintain. There’s also the harsh bio-mechanical reality to aging…
Looking for props to help support your practice? Limited supplies of gently used block/strap sets available to those in the Wallingford-Swarthmore-Media, PA area for hand-delivery.

The posture of yoga is steady and easy. It is realized by relaxing one’s effort and resting like the cosmic serpent on the waters of infinity.Patanjali
