Yoga for Men Over 50

7  – 8:15pm | April 4 - June 27

You’ve seen the pictures of women in pretzel poses, and you’ve thought, “No Yoga for me, thanks.”  But maybe for years, your wife or female friends have been telling you how much you’d benefit from Yoga.  This class is just for men over 50 who are new to Yoga.  You’ll be in the same boat as everyone else as you gradually increase your flexibility.  You’ll also learn some breathing techniques that reduce stress.  As the weeks progress, you might find that you’re less prone to injuries at work or at leisure, and that you recover faster from exertion.

TUESDAY

Chair Yoga

11:00 a.m.  – noon | April 5 - June 28

Developed for those who cannot get up and down from the floor easily. There’s still a lot of Yoga that can be done in a chair. Special breathing practices, gentle joint movements, and muscle strengthening will all take place in this fun class. We also do some poses while standing, using the chair for support.

FRIDAY

Yin Yoga: Power in Stillness

10:30 a.m.  –  noon | April 8 - June 24

Are you on a fast train? Ready to get off and breathe? In Yin Yoga, you will enter poses on the floor and stay a while, observing strong sensations, while allowing your breath to help you access deeper layers of dense connective tissue, like ligaments, tendons, and fascia. The long-held, passive poses will help you become more flexible, with juicier joints and better functioning organs. You might become calmer, and better able to focus: a gift in our world of constant distraction. Yin Yoga is an excellent complement to other forms of Yoga. Come home to your body in a profound and satisfying way. Previous Yoga experience required.
