Empowering the Aging Body

Saturday, October 26 – Sunday, October 27
with Monica Voss, Tama Soble, Shari Stein and Della Croteau

Saturday, 1:00pm-6:30pm, Sunday, 9:30am-5:00pm, $325

As the population ages, teachers must inform themselves about natural changes in the body as well as common conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and lower back pain. Changes in outlook also occur in older students as they contemplate their lives and goals. Through practice, discussion and analysis, we will explore these and other issues of aging and create intelligent and supportive options in order to instruct older students holistically with energy, knowledge and empathy.

Empowering the Aging Body is intended for certified and non-certified yoga and meditation teachers, teachers-in-training, health professionals, therapists, social workers and interested students of yoga. CEU’s awarded through Yoga Alliance.
