I thought I would give my feelings as to why I am a faithful student in Beverly’s Senior yoga class. Due to an active life with dance and horseback riding (falls 🥺), I have aches and pains. My doctor said that as we age, we need to “stretch and strengthen” as well as work on balance. Senior yoga does just that! Beverly gets us to do that by humor and also teaching us about our anatomy. I love the fact that she is so knowledgeable about the body and how it works. It is a perfect pairing for Senior yoga!
Beverly’s Senior Zoom Yoga is 1) a lot of fun; 2.) Bev loves teaching as much as she loves yoga. She knows the names and functions of the bones and muscles in the body, not to mention the Sanskrit names for the postures. Before you know it I am remembering what and where the acetabulum is and which rib is doing what; 3.) Bev’s leading us through the yoga postures is like a meditation on the body; 4.) Bev’s yoga leaves me feeling more flexible and strong, improves my posture and leaves me feeling good!
I want to tell you how much I am getting out of these seemingly simple classes. They are quite complex and are foundational to what I absolutely need for my poor, afflicted body. Not to put too fine a point on it….details omitted. I am now much more aware and learning every session about how my body works and am finding respect and compassion for the challenges I face. So locking my knees is the tip of the iceberg. Thank you so much for what you are doing for me and I thank God I am learning to do good things for myself.
Many thanks to Listening Wellness Center, especially, to Laura and Bev, for offering virtual yoga classes and chair yoga classes. It's been fun and so beneficial to be able to practice yoga with our instructor, Bev, and to join others in a welcoming and nurturing environment. I look forward to every class!
