Ashby Village is an innovative, nonprofit organization that connects seniors with each other and with the resources they need to remain active, independent and successful.
They provide staff coordination, volunteer services and community and special-interest activities for its members that are essential for continuing to age effectively in the diverse, multigenerational neighborhoods we all cherish.
They serve people 50 years of age or older who reside in Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Kensington, Emeryville, and parts of Oakland.
I offer a weekly Gentle Yoga class for Ashby Village members and volunteers at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, CA. The class meets every Thursday from 10-11:30 AM. The first half of class includes poses using a chair for support, the second half we practice reclined postures for those who can transfer safely to the floor. Please use the contact page of this website to inquire about the appropriateness of this class for your personal situation.
Below are a 15-minute chair yoga sequence, and 15-minute floor yoga sequence for your continued use or as a preview to the style of practice I teach each Thursday, at 10 AM.
