This class is designed for adults who are looking to either begin a yoga practice later in life or who have a practice and wish to do so in an environment where they are with others in their age group. The class is targeted for those 50 or older and will provide modifications of all kinds to support any participant. This may include using chairs to convert poses to seated postures or using the wall to help with balance, for instance. This one hour class will start with a seated meditation (from a chair or seated on the mat or a block), will continue with upper body movements designed to stretch and relax the upper body, proceed with standing poses for strengthening and balance, progress to the floor for backbending and end with a 5 minute rest ( shavasana). All kinds of modifications will be supported and anyone with any special conditions or who requires any special support to attend classes will be supported. Contact with Karen Fabian, the teacher, can be made through Charlestown Yoga, to answer any questions you may have prior to attending or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
