Yoga for Radiant Aging

April 19 - April 21

Yoga For Radiant Aging: Merging Modern Science with Ancient Yogic Practices.
Learn how to practice yoga as we age with radiance, vibrancy, & health. Around the age of 35 we begin to slowly lose bone density, muscle mass, co-ordination, brain function, and lung volume. There is a wealth of new scientific research that demonstrates how yoga is uniquely suited to slow and even reverse this process. For instance, Dr. Loren Fishman has published research on how yoga can increase bone density. The research show that certain practices can make you functionally younger. The earlier you begin these practices the more reserve you will have as you age. The good news, which research supports, is that it is never too late to begin to “buy back functional years” using these practices (Attia, 2023).
For students and teachers of all ages. Format is lecture with slide show, 60 minute asana, yoga nidra, & savasana. Asana will include modifications for all levels. Ending with discussion and Q&A.
