About Wisdom Tree Yoga & Healing Arts, LLC
Wisdom Tree Yoga & Healing Arts is dedicated to providing yoga classes, yoga therapy and workshops to adults 50+.
Our mission is to make yoga accessible, particularly for those living with health or other physical challenges.
We believe that . . .
- Aging is not to be feared; it is a natural, beautiful part of life
- It is possible to age with grace and vibrancy. When faced with physical, mental or emotional challenges, yoga provides tools to help us navigate those challenges with wisdom, grace and resilience.
- Just because we have pain does not mean we have to suffer. We can still experience joy and contentment even in the midst of pain and difficulty.
- Knowledge is power: important to understand why and how the practices we use in yoga affect our physiological, psycho-social and mental health.
Each person is unique as defined by her needs and circumstances. These needs include (but are not limited to) the individual’s physical condition and health, mental-emotional makeup, familial and social relationships, career, social and economic status. At Wisdom Tree Yoga, we encourage students to personalize yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation practices, visualization and relaxation practices to meet their needs.
We offer individual yoga therapy session, small therapeutic group classes and workshops for arthritis, joint mobility, back pain, bone health, healthy aging, stress management, balance, and more.
