Functional Longevity Mondays online 9:45-10:30am
Based on the work of biomechanist, Katy Bowman, we will focus on movement that encourages us to move well, feel better, and be functionally independent (being able to participate in the activities and pastimes we enjoy, as well as being able to continue to live in our own home). Class movements will be performed from a variety of standing, seated and floor postures and will often use a tennis ball, yoga block(s) and/or a strap (please email Kristie for options if you currently do not own this equipment and would like to participate).

Tai Chi invites you to move slow in a fast world. Often called medication in motion, Tai Chi is comprised of easy-to-learn forms that are both healing and mindful.

Meditation provides the opportunity to connect with our breath to help usher our body and mind back to a more natural and calm state that can improve well-being, sleep and relationships. Every time we notice that our mind has slipped away from the now, we gently bring it back to our breathing, to our body, to the present moment. There is no good or bad meditation, there is no good or bad meditator, there is just our breath, again and again. No experience necessary.
