Thinking about aging...

Winnie-the-Pooh is nearly one hundred years old (if you count his first appearance as "Teddy Bear" in When We Were Very Young published in 1924 by A.A. Milne.) And Winnie-the-Pooh is famous for thinking about his constant pursuit of hunny.

While I've got plenty of hunny in my cupboard (no pursuit required) I do a fair amount of thinking about aging–and more specifically Yoga and Healthy Aging. Dear old Pooh has the good fortune to be an ageless stuffed bear, however for the rest of us Healthy Aging is a worthy topic and a worthy goal. Healthy Aging, defined for the purpose of what I am sharing here, is the amount of time (in your lifetime) that you are in good health as opposed to time spent in ill health. It is likely that most humans will spend some portion of their life in sickness.

Maintaining vitality and wellness as we age is essential, and yoga is a fantastic way to achieve this. My Yoga for Healthy Aging* classes welcomes all ages, bodies, and experience levels. Join in this slower-paced, accessible, and energizing yoga class designed to support a healthy mind and body. Join and connect with others while experiencing the benefits of a mindful yoga practice.

*Wednesdays at 10:30 at Sellwood Yoga. Mondays at 1:30 at Lake Oswego Adult Community Center (Parks & Recreation department).
