FREE YOGA FOR SENIORS

    Coconut Grove's premiere yoga center, Dharma Yoga Studio, now has free classes for  older folks.  I've been going for a couple of months and enjoy it very much.




     We do it seated. "Chair Yoga" consists of a series of exercises that leaves you feeling exhilarated and relaxed. You don't need a yoga mat or towel, chairs are included. Just come and take a seat.
    The classes take place on Mondays and Thursdays, 2:15 to 3:15.  Dharma is located on Commodore just east of the Lokal burger joint, 3170 Commodore Plaza.

     Our teacher, Natalie, is inspiring and ever-smiling.  Spending an hour with her  brightens your day.

     The free series is sponsored by the Woody Foundation. "Senior" is not defined by the Dharma folks but it seems to be anyone over 60. 
Barbara Shale, who works the front desk told me, "I'm 71 but I'm no senior!". 
    I am.  
   The classes are not too serious and truth be told, a good bit of joking goes on within this bi-weekly circle of friends.

    Dharma offers a wide variety of classes seven days a week. Most costs between $10 and $15 (you get a discount by buying a series card). To see their many offerings go to dharmastudio.com or call, 305-461-1777.

  1. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
