Yoga for Later Life with Sylvia Smallman

The experienced human may have

  • long-held patterns of thinking and doing,

  • long held physical contractions, and

  • (sometimes) Sensory Motor Amnesia.

This four-hour workshop will address how teaching a 50+ age group differs significantly from a regular hatha class.
Discover what you as a teacher have to surrender, how your teaching approach may shift, and the great satisfaction you will feel upon seeing your students’ awakenings. We will explore asana and movement on the mat and on the chair, alternately. Using a few basic guiding principles, there will be lots of discussion and experiential participation.

Yoga Outreach is piloting a sliding scale for fees for this workshop.

There are a limited amount of slots for classes offered at the middle and lower end of the scale. Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. *Adapted from
