To be a ‘Senior’ today means something entirely different than it used to.  We are living longer, healthier, and we continue to be vibrantly active in our lifestyles as we gain years of life experience (aging).  Hinton’s Good Companions strives to help redefine being a senior in Hinton and this world, to meet the needs of these vibrant seniors of today.

Join Certified Yoga Instructor Sharon McGettigan, April 24th at 1 pm for Yoga for Seniors.  This hour long practice will take place at the Good Companions hall located at 250 Hardisty Avenue in Hinton.  This practice is intended for all levels of experience from none to some and for practitioners of all ages.  It may be done entirely in a chair, or a combination of chair and yoga mat or entirely on the floor/yoga mat.  It is designed for someone with limited mobility and/or limited strength and stamina or someone recovering from surgery or injuries, as well as mobile persons.

The cost for this Yoga for Seniors class is $15.  Please show up before 1 pm and be ready to start at 1 pm.  Dress comfortably and if you are wanting to do the practice on a yoga mat, bring a mat if you have one (we may have a few extra mats on hand if you don’t).  You may want to not have a heavy lunch prior to the class.  Remember this practice may be done in a chair or on a yoga mat.
