Aging & Preventative Yoga
World demographics have changed and we will soon have more older people than children, and more people at extreme old age than ever before. Population aging is a powerful force which will impact and transform our national and global demographics.
Will our aging population have good health, sustained well-being, social engagement and productivity?
An aging population affects health care and social costs, so establishing an infrastructure for better health and wellbeing in older age is critical to us personally, and as a society. Understanding the changing relationship of healthy aging helps to sustain the powerful resource inherent in older populations.
Restorative Yoga is highly adaptable to accommodate the needs of different conditions and physical abilities.
They have a special ability to leave us feeling deeply nourished and rested, and the power to help with rehabilitation, therapeutics and prevention.
Much as the Gunas arise in all aspects of our lives, they arise in the emotional body. The more we balance the Rajasic and Tamasic aspects within us, the more we can bring the body, mind and spirit back to the sweet Sattvic state of yoga.
In this Restorative Training, we refine our awareness of gross and subtle anatomy, working with the physical alignment of the body,and how the cycle of life affects our physical and psychological stabliity
Learn the scientific and somatic language of the body and apply this knowledge through practical experience and how to apply these tools.
