yoga for seniors

Yoga practice offers many benefits for students of all ages, but it can be especially helpful for people who are over 50.

Regardless of your age, finding a teacher and a class schedule that works for you is one of the keys to consistent learning and growth.  Home practice accelerates and deepens that growth.
