Instructor Pat Shaw has taught yoga for over twenty years in the Sacramento region. She received her instructor certification here in Sacramento, studying the many facets of Yoga, and is well-versed in techniques that are most beneficial and safe for seniors.
In Tuesday’s class Pat teaches yoga with students lying on the floor. Blankets, yoga blocks and bolsters are used to support the body in various yoga positions. Postures are held for three to five minutes to access the fascia, releasing toxins and tension from the body.
In Wednesday’s class modifications are made if you are unable to lay on the floor. In this class yoga postures are executed with the support of a chair.
Anyone can reap the benefits from practicing yoga; and seniors are just as likely to gain rewards from yoga, just as much as younger adults!
