MOVEMENT FOR LIFE

Aging with Vitality!

The Movement for Life class at is a practice for promoting healthy aging. As we age, our brain craves stimulus in body-mind to keep us engaged, healthy and vital. In this class we challenge our mobility, coordination, balance, strength, skill and adaptability using a wide array of techniques, tools and situations. Explore broad themes and concepts of human movement to increase our embodied awareness, and free us from dogmatic or linear styles of practice. Through this practice we build confidence, resilience and community. Though this is a designed as a practice for midlife and beyond, everyone is welcome.

SUNDAYS 8:45-9:45AM

Location: Spirit Loft Movement Centre (Carlaw & Dundas)


YOGA FOR RESILIENCE

This trauma-informed all-levels practice is centred around a mind-body experience that cultivates self-awareness and a more compassionate relationship with yourself and those around you.

With a focus on strength, mobility and nervous system regulation, you will discover how your body is designed to move, gain self-confidence, increase stress resilience, and improve your coordination and balance - from head to toes!

Every week, through yoga, movement and other embodied practices, we will explore what it means to harness the resilience you already possess. So come, be curious, and give yourself permission to have YOUR YOGA experience, in YOUR BODY, in YOUR WAY. Laughter is welcomed and encouraged!
