Spinal movements in Veterans Yoga – Beaumont Texas

One of the things that I have noticed in chair yoga classes are similar yoga pose offerings.

I took LVCYT training at the Open Center in New York City, back in October of 2012.  Laskmi Voelker has this set of yoga poses that I use in almost every class I teach, whether it is Beginners Mat class or Chair Yoga Fitness.

The Six Essential Spinal Movements.  It is lovely!

I use them at the beginning and end of class.  They are great!

Why Yoga helps the heart

Excerpt from February 2011 Yoga Journal article, “Straight to the Heart”.

Why Yoga Helps: As Dr. Ornish explains, “Chronic emotional stress makes plaque build up twice as fast in the coronary arteries that feed the heart. Stress also causes the coronary arteries to constrict, reducing blood flow to the heart. It makes the platelets sticker and more likely to form blood clots that may precipitate a heart attack.”

Yoga is perhaps the most effective stress-reduction method ever invented. Dr. Timothy McCall.
