A new four-week series, “Yoga Therapy for the Aging Adult,” begins next week at 3:30 p.m. Thursdays in Nevada City, 5:30 p.m. Fridays in Penn Valley and 10 a.m. Wednesdays at Lake of the Pines.

Each week will have a different emphasis and will be appropriate for all ages and abilities, said class instructor Bob Ash.

“While this is more of an educational series, each class will contain some physical movement, breath work and meditation,” he said. “If you have been curious about yoga and meditation, but weren’t sure it was right for you, this is a great opportunity to explore the benefits of adding these practices to your life.”

Ash, a certified Yoga Therapist and the founder of DevPrayag Yoga Therapy, said yoga and meditation can allow aging adults to enjoy their lives more.

“As we age, there is no greater gift we can give ourselves than to begin a practice of yoga and meditation,” he said. “Many newcomers are intimidated by what they think yoga is, but when practiced properly, yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities.”
