Planking with Emma
I’ve practiced yoga in Nelson with Rosie Holland and Sue Hallas since 2000. Yoga has given me increased balance, strength and flexibility.
I know from personal experience how challenging it can be to walk into a yoga class - even a beginners class - to find a room full of young, athletic, lycra-clad bodies. It can make you feel inadequate and out of your comfort zone.
I realized that if I were looking for a beginner’s yoga class now, in my 60's, I might not find one with people of my own age. It has been argued that practicing yoga with like-minded/like-bodied companions can make the difference to how a person feels in the practice.
That's why I've launched Silver Yogis aimed at older adults (50+ ) who would like to try yoga in a supportive and accepting environment.
