yoga for seniors in tampa
 

Yoga is not about touching your toes ...it's about what you learn on the way down.

 

My teaching style:

I teach with the intention of making yoga accessible to everyone. You don't have to look like the cover of a yoga magazine to begin a practice...you don't even need to be able to touch your toes! 

Creating a class that will help ease stress is also important in the classes I teach. We can get so caught up in the swirl of life...sometimes it's nice to settle in, and quiet a bit. My classes are focused on the mindful and meditative aspects of a yoga practice...with the intention of helping you reach a place of calm and focus.

We hold the poses a little longer, practice yogic breathing techniques, throw in a little meditation every now and then...and, of course, a hearty savasana!

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”

-Jon Kabat-Zinn.

 

Why meditate?!

Meditation has amazing benefits to your mind and well-being....and science proves it! Here are a few reasons why you should practice, with links to the scientific studies:

I could go on and on all day...that’s only a few scientifically proven benefits of meditation!

"Kabir says this: just throw away all thoughts of
imaginary things,
and stand firm in that which you are."

 

Think you can't meditate because:

  • "I can't clear my mind"? We don't do any mind-clearing with mindfulness meditation! People tell me this the most!

  • "I can't sit in lotus-position". That's ok! I can't either. We can use a chair, or sit cross-legged on a comfortable cushion.

  • "I'm not Buddhist/Hindu/religious". My classes are secular…so there is no religious affiliation ( I KNOW, I know...SO many of the photos on my site have people with prayer hands!)

  • "I don't have time". You can take as little as a couple of minutes to find a little time to be mindful or meditate.

  • "I can't sit still". Walking meditation is a thing. I can show you how!

So, maybe you CAN meditate after all!
