How can we age gracefully and consciously? How can we help our loved ones (parents and grandparents) do the same? In this episode, Carrie Hensley, Director of Yoga for YMEDICA, provides us with practical insights on how we can make yoga and meditation accessible to those 60 and older - even if they’ve never practiced yoga before. Learn how to best introduce yoga and meditation to older family members and friends. Discover the latest evidence-based approach to teaching an older population. Understand how yoga can give those 60 and over (and their caretakers) new opportunities for physical and spiritual growth.
