Join us for Golden Yoga! A registered series of classes that are perfect for seniors who have never done yoga before, beginners and those seeking a gentle practice. Are you already a student here? Would your mother, father or partner benefit from this safe introduction to yoga?
Ten classes in this series; every Tuesday and Thursday in October, from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm. This series is led by our CYA-E-RYT300 instructor Paolo Rigoni (61 years old).
Golden Yoga is a safe and gentle class for those over 50. It brings together the benefits of Yoga, Pranayama (deep breathing) and meditation with a great element of community.
Yoga classes help the over 50s by increasing our balance, flexibility, range of motion, bone density and much more. Our playful movements will help to provide elasticity to the spine, firming up the skin, removing tension from the body, strengthening the abdominal muscles and improving the quality of both muscle tone and posture. These benefits are being increasingly proven by science – and arguably, those who stand to gain the most from yoga’s advantages are the over-fifties.
We need to keep moving and safely stressing our bodies as we age, improving our balance and mobility as much as we can. Two classes per week for five weeks gives us proper time to safely move and stress ourselves, rest and repeat. Upon completion of our October series, students should be able to safely attend and practice our regular Warm Yin Yoga and Warm Gentle Flow classes.
