Feeling better is for everyone ...

Core Bodyworks has a very fit group of people between the ages of 55-81 coming to classes. In fact, one is in training to become a yoga instructor!  You will find yourself in great company at the studio, and develop friendships, enhancing "your community,"  while staying fit.

Yoga and other disciplines offered here can help anyone of any age with stress reduction, flexibility, strength, improved fitness and overall health. Its goal in aligning the body and the mind can result in a lightness of being  and a feeling of connectedness and happiness.

As we age, our bodies tend to stiffen, we lose range of motion and become more prone to a number of health issues. Yoga, Pilates and  properly geared  fitness training, can help ease and in some cases erase many of those issues.  Your sense of wellness and empowerment will ease your mind, boosting  mental alertness and happiness.  

Further benefits include:

  • Improved balance
  • Reduce joint swelling
  • Improve sleep
  • Boost heart health
  • Improve mood and sense of well-being 
  • Lower blood pressure

But if you are a beginner, talk with your doctor first, and start your program with an enlightened instructor and an assurance  of health to come.  It's still a process, and a practice, no matter whatever age you begin!
