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.
