Join District Flow Yoga and Hill Center for a yoga class catered to older students!
A yoga practice can contribute to your overall sense of well-being, contentment, ability to relax, sense of balance, strength, and body awareness.
This class series, taught by experienced yoga teacher Anne Harrison, will allow older students to access the physical and mental benefits of yoga asana (asanas are the physical positions we assume during a hatha yoga practice) and breathwork, without worrying about adaptability or accessibility. It will be beneficial to both beginning yogis, and those with prior yoga experience. Anne has experience in dealing with various physical limitations that some seniors experience i.e. osteoporosis, knee issues, balance challenges and stiff joints, and is capable of adapting class to suit the needs of each individual student.
About Anne: Anne has been teaching yoga for approximately 15 years with 700+ hours of Yoga Alliance registered training and her personal practice spans 30 years. Anne’s teaching experience includes studio classes, private clients, kids’ yoga, lead teacher trainer for aspiring yoga instructors and a current adjunct professorof meditation and yoga at George Washington University. Anne is passionately committed to creating a safe practice for everyone where the student can work according to his/her physical and mental capacity in any given moment. Her classes combine some slow flow with a lot of holding and aligning in poses to build strength, balance and one pointed mind focus. She encourages students to use props as they make many poses available to those who might need extra support in any given pose at any given time. FYI, she is known as the Prop Queen. If you attend her class, don’t be surprised if she cues into a cozy, restorative pose on blankets!
This class requires at least 6 participants. Participants will be notified if the minimum is not met.
Hill Center is dedicated to making our programming equitable and accessible to all. If cost, accessibility, or other obstacles are a barrier to attending a program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to work out a solution.
