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.
