Senior Yoga Class

This class is designed for people who feel less flexible, are recovering from surgery or feel that they reached an age, where the natural flexibility and strength are getting more challenging, and things need to be done slower and easier.
Some exercise and yoga postures are the same as in the regular hatha yoga class. Except, that this class is shorter, one hour instead of 1 ½ hours. We practise easier postures and variations, and for the breathing exercises we sit on the chair, instead of the floor. So no sitting in lotus or cross-legged, also at the moment we do not practice the Sun Salutations in the senior’s yoga class.
Still you get a good yoga practise with breathing exercises, exercises for balance, strength and to maintain flexibility.
This class is suitable for anyone. We do a lot of standing postures + exercises, some exercises sitting or lying on the floor. But every exercise can be done sitting on a chair and I help you with adjustments for your special needs.
We always finish the class with a guided final relaxation.
And for those who wish to stay a meditation after final relaxation.

Where:

Raceview Scout Hall, 32 Taylor Street, Eastern Heights QLD 4305 (parking behind the building)

When:

Wednesday 9am – 10am, followed by meditation and short lecture if you wish to stay afterwards.

Cost:

First class is free;  Single class $10.- (pay weekly);  10 class yoga pass $80.- (pay upfront for 10 sessions)
What to bring:   Yoga mat if you have, otherwise a towel or blanket is fine.
Wear loose clothing you feel comfortable stretching in. Socks and jumper during the cooler months of the year.

    I am looking forward to starting these classes. It’s been many years since I attended yoga classes.
