Yoga for Big Kids (Adults and Seniors)
A practice for mind, body and soul, yoga is unique from any other form of exercise. Utilizing postures (asana), meditation (dhyana), and breathing techniques (pranayama), yoga positively impacts the physical and psychological wellbeing of those who practice while impacting and balancing the subtle body or energy systems. Extremely adaptable, it can be enjoyed by every body, regardless of age, flexibility, or mobility.
Young, old, fit, or couch potato – no matter your age or fitness level, Lisa Roberts’ individually tailored private or semi-private classes will help you achieve your wellness goals in a safe and nurturing environment.
Benefits of a regular yoga practice include:
- Increased levels of physical fitness, strength and flexibility.
- Improved posture, balance, coordination and ability to focus.
- Increased body awareness, self-esteem and confidence.
- Reduction in feelings of anxiety, depression and/or stress.
YOung and YOuthful – YoYo Yoga for ALL
Could yoga be the link to the utopian, “Fountain of Youth”?
YOung or old – the benefits of yoga are the same, no matter your age, a regular practice will have you feeling stronger, taller, more flexible, less stressed, happier, healthier and, well, YOung and YOuthful.
As we age, flexibility, balance, and strength are key to enjoying optimal physical health and quality of life. We are human and life is not perfect, joints get a little creaky and body parts do not always, ahem, cooperate as they once did… and that’s okay. With a gentle and compassionate approach–and a little sense of humor for good measure– Lisa will personally tailor a yoga practice to incrementally strengthen and condition your body while fostering balance and flexibility not only for your body, but mind and spirit. As the ancient yogi’s said, “You are as YOUNG as Your spine is flexible”. You may not ever be twenty-five again… but, you could feel like you are!
Geared toward seniors or younger adults recovering from injury or surgery, YoYo Yoga’s YOung and YOuthful classes are slower paced, gentle, and/or restorative, and tailored to each client’s needs. Sessions may include gentle movement, restorative yoga postures, guided meditation, breathing and relaxation techniques, and can be adapted for practice in a bed or chair as needed, with extreme care and awareness of contraindications for medical conditions, injuries, surgeries, and medications.
