Rather than striving for anti-aging remedies that tend to deny the natural course of life, let’s embrace the art of aging with grace and wisdom.
One in five Americans is over the age of 40. Many are living with pain and physical limitations that can be lessened or alleviated with the simple tools of yoga. Though many are interested in starting a yoga practice, they have no idea where to begin and do not feel comfortable in the typical Vinyasa flow classes so prevalent in studios and gyms, nor should they. Our society needs more Yoga Teachers who are willing and capable of addressing individual needs within practices that meet the physical abilities of these aging baby boomers. I’m one of them and the results I have witnessed in myself and my students are worth repeating.

With a common desire to be healthy and fit for life, yet battling habits that decrease well-being due to postural, emotional, and mental stress, this demographic creates a huge opportunity for you, as a teacher and student, to experience the healing powers of Yoga with excellent results.
KEYS TO AGING WITH GRACE with Nancy will cover the following:
What is Aging?
What is Healthy Aging?
What is Yoga for Healthy Aging?
You will learn physical tools and specific practices to:
- Build muscle and bone strength
- Improve flexibility and range of motion
- Bolster balance and agility
- Enhance heart health
- Prevent and/or lesson the limitations of osteoporosis, hip fracture, joint replacement, chronic pain, and more
- Diminish stress and insomnia
- Stimulate brain plasticity
- Increase self-esteem
- Calm emotional turmoil
- Reframe belief system
- Sustain enjoyment of life
It is not about stopping or reversing the process of aging.
It is about enjoying a longer health span of independence and equanimity.
Specializing in my own form of Gentle Yoga over the past 15 years and witnessing the profound effects in my students, I am now expanding my offerings to more deeply embrace the practices that support our aging cycle. It’s fascinating the effects we can have on our health and well-being when we apply the simplest of consistent attention.
The signs of aging are an honorable gift. They are a wake-up call to the choices we must make regarding our quality of life. Do you want to age gracefully while appreciating the wisdom, patience, and honesty that comes with it? Then let’s take care of ourselves daily. The Yogic practices of moving our bodies respectfully and our breath mindfully support our relationship with this precious human life. Yoga offers us the tools to embrace our fullest potential and turn any physical limitations into lessons for the spirit.
Each session includes an educational lecture and discussion, related posture demonstration and assessment, a short break plus a 90-minute yoga practice.
