Health Advice

by Nina
I'm pleased to announce that this year for the very first time I'm scheduled to teach new Yoga for Healthy Aging programming on "Adapting to and Accepting Change" in the coming year. I'll be co-teaching both a weekend workshop (April 7-8 in Brentwood, CA) and a weekend retreat (June 22-24 at Ratna Ling Retreat Center) with Sandy Carmellini, who is both a certified Iyengar yoga teacher and certified Yoga for Healthy Aging teacher.

For those of you who might be interested, here's some information about these two special events.


SPRING 2018 WEEKEND WORKSHOP


In this workshop we’ll look at the many ways that yoga can help us cope with physical, mental, and emotional changes throughout our lives. For both temporary and permanent physical changes, we’ll look at how you can adapt your asana practice to continue receiving its many benefits. For the emotional effects caused by change, we’ll look at yoga practices that can help us manage anger, grief, depression, and anxiety. Finally we will discuss how cultivating equanimity helps you weather life changes with more grace and ease and how the wisdom of yoga can help you change the way you look at your life, allowing you to move toward acceptance and peace in the face of change. The workshop will be a good balance of discussion and active practice, allowing you experience all these techniques in action.

April 7 & 8, 2018, 11am-1pm and 3-5pm
