Neither fit nor feisty? No problem. YogaFit & Feisty 50+ will take you there–safely. Beginners Welcome!
Yoga Fit & Feisty 50+ is your “just right” yoga for longevity. Senior Yoga? Too gentle, few results, lacking in core power. Vinyasa Flow? Too dangerous, risky for the joints/spine. Both are often taught by instructors with little experience. FFF+ 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 of meditation–impossible with music and mirrors. So what’s your longevity strategy? You plan early for your financial retirement, but what’s your wellness plan for ensuring you can continue to live fully and enjoy it?
YogaFit & Feisty 50+ 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! YogaFit & Feisty 50+ includes pilates-inspired core work and can be a refreshing change from the repetition of pilates. YFF is never the same class twice; and, you’ll leave feeling like you had a workout, massage and a meditation vacation! As for seated meditation: sitting is The Problem in our modern culture. Why not move while you meditate?
