FLC Seniors Yoga

Seniors Yoga in Calgary

 Hatha Yoga for 55+

Connecting mind, body and breath

Yoga is a system of breathing exercise, movements and relaxation techniques that stretch and strengthen your body, keeping your mind and spirit working together in harmony.
Yoga can improve your health, stretches your muscles, sharpens your memory and eases your tension.  It's great for all ages and physical abilities.

The FLC Seniors Club offer classes for both the beginner and the more experienced students with modifications to help you maximize your class, working according to your own limits of flexibility and strength.
All our instructors are certified professionals who have experience working with older adults (55+) and the programs are designed to meet those needs.

This class is suitable for the active and healthy beginner and continuing beginnner.  You will learn about the basic philosophy, breath work and physical practice of yoga.  Note:  Some basic experience and knowledge of yoga is not required, but would be an asset.
