Relax into Yoga for Seniors Workshop: Skillful Practices to Honor Aging Bodies
As we age, it’s common to face issues such as hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain, and more. Yoga is beneficial for all of these age-related ailments and can lead to greater flexibility, balance, and overall well-being. Yet surprisingly, some commonly-taught yoga postures may pose risks to older adults, which means it’s vital that seniors study with an experienced, qualified instructor.
After training yoga professionals to make yoga practices more accessible to older adults for over a decade, Kimberly and Carol are offering weekend workshops where older adults can experience their evidence-based approach, Relax into Yoga for Seniors. Developed in collaboration with experts at Duke University Medical Center, this pioneering program safely and effectively adapts yoga practices for older bodies, minds, and hearts.
Our 2020 Workshops have been cancelled due to Covid 19. To receive information about future workshops, please contact join Carol’s mailing list here: https://healingmoves.com/contact/

Stress Relief Right Under Your Nose
A relaxed abdominal breath is nature’s own built-in relaxation mechanism–yet many people in our 24/7 high-stress culture are shallow “chest breathers” and miss out on one of the simplest, most effective ways to enhance health. The breath is the only physiologic function that is under both voluntary and involuntary control and offers a unique doorway into the central nervous system. Learn simple breathing practices that can profoundly boost health. Contact Carol to arrange a presentation.
