Our mission is to champion those who are feeling discouraged, in physical pain and disconnected to their peace and life force. Join us for a class and experience the possibilities of being pain free and moving with ease in a supportive and safe environment.

    • East Sandwich, MA- Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital

    This 1 hour class is modified for seniors preferring to practice their yoga seated in a chair. Poses are done seated or using the chair for support during standing poses. Chair yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions.

    As we grow older, muscles shorten, tighten and weaken. Lack of weight-bearing activity contributes to osteoporosis and lack of stretching leads to joint deterioration, arthritis and loss of flexibility. These can combine to create poor posture, back and neck pain and loss of range of motion which limit daily activity.

    The mindful stretching, deep breathing and relaxation techniques learned through yoga will help increase circulation, relieve tension, improve range of motion and increase breath capacity.

    Yoga classes with Sherill are gentle, slow-moving classes using safe and appropriate postures that harness the therapeutic benefits of yoga in a comfortable and nurturing environment.

    • Teaneck, NJ - Kavannah Yoga

    I am very excited to offer Samadhi for Seniors, a new program that is very dear to my heart.

    Here in the US, aging can be a stressful and even depressing process. Seniors are often either invisible or seen as a burgeoning market for various drugs to stave off the dreaded effects of old age. In our youth-oriented society, seniors are sometimes regarded as “dinosaurs” who are not in touch with the realities of today’s fast-paced high-tech world.

    In India, growing older is viewed very differently. There, older people are venerated for their wisdom and life experience. Old age is viewed as a wonderful opportunity to fully pursue spirituality. Now that the responsibilities of the "householder stage of life" are over, seniors can fully devote themselves to spiritual growth through yoga and meditation.

    Samadhi for Seniors is a program to allow seniors to engage in intense spiritual practice, with the goal of coming as close as possible to ultimate spiritual growth. We will be presenting the full array of yogic practices to our senior practitioners.

    Asanas (yoga postures) modified appropriately for seniors, whether frail or active

    Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques)

    Intense meditation

    Mantra Japa (yogic chanting)

    Sound healing

    Yoga Nidra (deep conscious relaxation)

    You will not need to become a Sannyasin (renunciate) or move to an Ashram, of course, as many do in India. The program will take place in a center in your own neighborhood, or in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

    I hope you will join us to deepen your spiritual experience, explore the wonderful dimensions that lie within you, and connect more deeply with yourself and others.

    Therapeutic Yoga blends restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breath work, and guided meditation techniques in a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Students can expect to work on the floor and do some standing poses, but there will be props and/or chairs to assist those for whom standing is a stressor. Over the course of the session students will learn to bring breath, awareness and healthy movement into the body starting with the feet and working upward. Students of Therapeutic Yoga may benefit from improved balance, increased range of motion and reduced pain. Therapeutic Yoga is specifically designed for those students suffering from an injury, chronic pain or other condition which makes movement difficult.

    Finding healing through gentle movement of the body

    In this workshop we will explore gentle postures, breathing, yoga therapy, deep relaxation, meditation, chanting and writing as a way to find a practical approach to healing while deepening our understanding of living with Arthritis.

    Gentle yoga will bring more fluidity to our bodies while stretching and strengthening. It has been found that the more we move, the more flexibility we will experience in our daily lives. While connecting the breath to the body and mind, one can find a deeper relaxation, along with lessening stress and pain.

    As a group we will share our experience, find support, and explore what healing means to each of us.

    Caregivers are welcome.  (Seven-week series to follow)
