Whatever your age, it is important to have tools to support healthy aging. Learn how to build bone strength, better balance and coordination, and improved posture through yoga and Bodymind Ballwork. In this workshop, we will practice basic yoga poses that can be adapted for any level of fitness, and are proven to improve bone density.
We’ll explore Bodymind Ballwork, a relaxation technique using small rubber balls to relieve chronic tension through self-massage. The Ballwork addresses common postural issues such as kyphosis, a rounding of the upper back.
