The Allen County Chapter 187 of AARP will hold its monthly free educational presentation on Thursday, June 4, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. at the Community Foundation, 555 East Wayne Street, Fort Wayne (corner of Wayne and Monroe). Julia Haller of the Prana School of Yoga and Health will present “Yoga Practices for Aging Bodies with Youthful Hearts.” Julia will lead the participants in joint-freeing movements that respect joints and chronically sore muscles. She will direct attendees in fun, standing and balancing poses to gain strength, stamina and confidence using the core support of a chair. While sharpening the awareness of breath, she will help us identify where we hold our stress patterns of tension in shoulders, hips, knees or back.
Julia professes that “If you can breath, you can practice yoga.” She will address questions of interest from the audience. The public is welcome and encouraged to join in this educational and therapeutic opportunity. For the past three years, Julia herself has been a caregiver to her aging grandmother who suffers with dementia.
