The Age-Old Practice of Yoga to Support Healthy Aging

Carol is speaking at the California Assisted Living Association Conference in Palm Desert on Wednesday November 8th, 2017.  Participants will be invited to sample three of the eight branches of yoga while remaining seated – Pranayama (breathing), Asanas (gentle poses/movement), and Dhyana (meditation) – and experience firsthand the benefits of this age-old mind-body practice that calms the mind, increases flexibility, and facilitates pain reduction. Explore how yoga holds the potential for residents and other participants to unite body, mind, and breath, and increase one’s spiritual connection, if so desired. Leave with helpful ideas for how to incorporate these practices with residents in various places on the wellness spectrum.
