Losing one’s balance and falling is not an uncommon experience for older adults. This chair yoga class will include leg, hip, and core strengthening as well as concentrations on neck, back, and chest for better balance that will help to prevent falls. Chair yoga is a gentle way to improve your flexibility, balance, and strength without sitting on the floor. While optional standing poses with the support of a chair will be offered, you can participate fully while sitting. Exercise in the privacy of your own home/room or grab some friends and participate together. You’ll feel better and discover better balance in mind, body, and spirit.

As we age, we may find ourselves searching for our place in the world and musing about the purpose of our lives. This course explores one soul-nourishing path, the Blessing Path. When we consciously claim our role as a Blesser, we live more fully into the richness of this time of life. To be a Blesser may transform the aging process and contribute wholeness and joy to the world. Through art, poetry, music, journaling, guided meditation and sacred sharing, we will discover what it means to bless and will practice blessing our own lives and one another.

Host: Rev. Lois Mueller, Pastor Emerita of Plymouth Jazz & Justice UCC in Oakland, CA.
