Yoga for the Balance-challenged

with Wendy Robertsen

4 sessions: Tuesdays, Nov 7 to 28 │9:00-10:15am

Improve your balance, increase your power, and prevent injury

We spend all day trying to balance our work and personal lives, while neglecting our literal sense of balance. Solid physical balance is more than just being able to stand on one foot – good balance equals control over your movements and the ability to prevent injury. In yoga, balance poses also offer the added benefits of bringing your mind back into the present moment, helping you to find your centre, improve your focus, and relieve stress.

The key to building balance, coordination, and preventing injury from falling as we age, is in mastering transitions and developing power. Falls don’t usually happen when you are standing still or in a steady state or pose, but rather, when you are moving, transitioning, or adjusting.

This 4-session workshop will teach you some easy balance yoga sequences designed to improve your balance, motor skills, and functional living by rewiring the usual patterns of your brain. No previous yoga experience is required.
