Aging: Yoga and Social Justice


Course Code: MAGE-sp23 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


In this workshop, we will explore together what aging means in our society and for each of us personally, focusing on how yoga and Ayurvedic practices can support positive aging. We will share our life stories and offer an opportunity to understand your experiences with aging within a social justice framework. We will also explain aging within the Hindu context, and will provide a short history of yoga and the philosophy of Patanjali’s Yogasutra. Each class will include asana and meditation practice developed especially to support all dimensions of aging: physical, social, emotional, and spiritual. This workshop is designed for people of any age, but will be most relevant for those age 60 and over.  No prior knowledge of yoga is required.  Participants may choose to practice either seated in a chair or on a mat.  Chairs will be provided, but please bring your own mat if you prefer to use one.
