The gifts of yoga are many. Patricia, of Gekko Yoga, offers Yoga for Seniors on Mondays and Thursdays at 9–10am at the Municipal Center. Yoga can provide a path to better mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and social health. With attention to healthy alignment of the body, this practice can help you develop strength and flexibility as you age. The class is an ongoing class with new students joining throughout the year. Patricia teaches basic relaxation breathing and a gentle yoga flow, paying attention to alignment and mindfulness as you start or continue your yoga journey. Many of us have a history of some injury or physical challenges. Patricia will provide you with ideas on modifications so that you can still practice yoga at your own level. She is a certified Silver Sneakers instructor. Comfortable loose fit clothing is the most practical attire. Cost is $10 drop in or $45 for 5 classes or $90 for 10 classes. We are hoping to add a Chair yoga class for those that may find regular yoga too challenging due to limitations. Please contact me or Lori Andersen, Senior Outreach Services if you are interested and days and times that work best for you. If the cost is a hardship please let Lori Andersen know so that Senior Outreach can explore financial assistance options.
