Yoga for Boomers...and beyond
Yoga at the Agawam Senior Center is more than stretching and becoming stronger well into our senior years. It's also about building community, making friends, and getting to know each other better off the mat. To that end, Mary Ann hosts an annual yoga brunch. Pictured above is the group who attended the 2018 brunch on a perfect fall day. Allie, the dog, was in the picture because every morning upon arising she does a perfect downward dog pose, so it was only fair that she be included.
Early morning yogis feeling fit and flexible and ready to meet for their morning coffee after the 8:15 class. Recognize anyone?
Mary Ann Dietschler and Loretta Yargeau, yoga instructors at the Agawam Senior Center are shown here at a "Yoga for Osteoporosis" training for taught by Dr. Loren Fishman.
These yogis just finished a gentle yoga workout. Their happy faces reflect the satisfaction that feel knowing they are staying strong, fit, and flexible in their senior years.
Why yoga for seniors?
