Odyssey: Yoga, Therapy, Spirituality, and Aging

This course is designed to demystify the ancient science of yoga and to make it available as an integrative therapeutic tool for older adults and those serving them. Gentle poses practiced with awareness of one's breathing can bring about many benefits to one's health, improving flexibility and the circulation of blood and lymph. This course does not offer yoga practice on the mat but will include "Letting Go" (stress management) aspects of yoga practice, about 5-15 minutes each time, which will be practiced from the chair. Prior to this course, if you have not practiced yoga before, please enroll in a local offering of classes.
