Yoga for Seniors: "When a Chair becomes your Friend"with Celeste Mallett Jason, May 2013
A positive approach to the reality of aging is offered in this series of explorations of using a Chair when learning rehabilitative/reconstructive movement forms. Basic techniques can be applied and adapted in such a way that the individual can rehabilitate carefully and safely for grace and ease of movement. We shall explore a range of issues from hearing loss to balance issues, from Parkinson's to Arthritis, and discover ways to increase mental concentration, physical strength and flexibility, and ensure that a confident and comfortable range of movement results. The practice of mindful awareness of breathing plays an important part in calming the anxious mind and aiding deep relaxation and restful sleep.
Celeste Mallett Jason's teaching experience spans more than 30 years. She holds certificates in Iyengar, Sivanada and Ashtanga Yoga and has studied with many popular North American and European teachers. She has lost count of the number of students who have attended her classes and the ones whom she assisted in training to become Teachers themselves. Her integrative style is based on strong alignment principles, no longer specified by one school or another, but on the practical applications of grace and ease of movement and peace of mind. Celeste is particularly interested in Yoga Therapy and offers Private Sessions with this as a focus. Nature inspires her, as do the rigours of Life, which keep one both curious and humble.
