Limited capacity: Registration Closed
This gentle yoga class is designed for older adults who prefer a slower-paced practice. Students will experience a gradual progression of yoga poses to strengthen and stretch the body and breathing practices to calm the mind. The teacher will tailor the poses to accommodate the needs of different bodies, such as tight hips and hamstrings or cranky knees. All levels are welcome. Please bring your own yoga mat. A towel is recommended as padding for knees. This class is intended for DC Residents age 60 plus.
