Yoga for Later Life with Sylvia Smallman

The experienced human has: long held patterns of thinking and doing, long held physical contractions, and Sensory Motor Amnesia. Focussing on those aged 50+ (but good for everyone) this 4 hour workshop will address how teaching this age group differs significantly from a regular hatha class. Discover what you as a teacher have to let go of, how your approach to teaching may shift and the great satisfaction you will feel seeing your students’ awakenings. Asana and movement will be explored both on the mat and on the chair alternately. Using a few basic guiding principals, there will be lots of discussion and experiential participation.
