Long Life Yoga is your “just right” yoga for longevity. Senior Yoga? Too gentle, few results. Vinyasa Flow? Too dangerous, risky for the joints/spine. Both are often taught by instructors with little experience. Long Life is a unique class developed over 20 years by YogaHotDish founder Shaila Cunningham. This challenging class weeds out poses and techniques where the risk doesn’t justify the reward. It also approaches yoga as “meditation in motion” so you capture the cognitive and mood benefits–impossible with music and mirrors. So what’s your longevity strategy? You try to plan early for your financial retirement, but what’s your wellness plan for ensuring you can continue to live fully and enjoy it?
Long Life yoga is for active seniors, desk/sedentary workers, beginners, those rehabbing injuries or wanting to avoid them in the first place. Check it out if your vinyasa flow class is “too hard” on your body or if your gentle/senior yoga isn’t getting results. Maybe Tai Chi seems too complicated and Pilates too repetitive–this could be your class!
Gear provided, but bring a mat if you have one. Must be able to get up off floor unassisted, albeit slowly.
