According to Kirsten Joy Burch, owner of Living Yoga Dallas, aging gracefully may be easier than you think.
Kirsten, founder of PraniLife Consulting, a holistic wellness lifestyle program, promotes yoga and well being education across the Dallas Ft. Worth area. She is director of the new Wellness Center located at 4711 Westside Drive and will begin a weekly class in graceful aging on Thursday, at 2 p.m. beginning April 25.
There are gentle exercises to improve balance, easy stretches to expand mobility and isometrics to relax the facial muscles that soften lines and wrinkles. And, part of the time you don’t even have to get up from your chair.
Simple seated movements combined with mindful breathing help improve your immune system by increasing ?ow to your lymphatic system. You can lubricate joints and improve circulation with simple standing poses while improving strength and balance. You can learn to use props to help you move more ?uidly.
“You don’t have to get on the ?oor to enjoy the bene?ts of practices for graceful aging.” Kirsten assures. “Although, after practicing the movements taught in the graceful aging class, getting up and down will become easier,” she added.
You are never too old or too young to take care of your body, soothe your mind, and vitalize your energy. Everyone can participate and everyone can benefit!
Join Kirsten on Thursday, April 25 at 2 p.m. Wear comfortable clothing. Water will be available to keep you hydrated. $10.00 at the door.
