Finding physical and emotional strength and balance in our lives can be challenging at times and the past year has multiplied challenges that we once thought manageable. A weekend retreat using the tools of yoga postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama) and strength and balance exercise may be just what you need!
The “Joy of Movement” retreat is intended for all levels of ability. Bill offers experience for everyone and he has especially focused on offerings for active older adults as well as those with Parkinsons, MS or other neurological and movement disorders. This program is offered in the Viniyoga tradition, emphasizing the synthesis of breath and movement to achieve the intentions of each posture (pose) and more broadly, the intentions of each practice. Strength exercises are infused with balance, especially standing balance and the strength required in specific muscle groups to achieve better balance. Breath techniques, including alternate nostril breathing, will give participants the opportunity to explore techniques for relaxation, for energy or for emotional balance.
