A new student emailed me this about her chair/balance yoga class.
"I love your class and am able to stand straighter when taking my walks as well as in general. I will try to do the shoulder exercises to the best of my ability as I know they help." (She has had a shoulder replacement.)

Continuing senior yoga students are enthusiastic about the Age Without Limits Zoom classes.
"Janet invites students to tell her what they need for their bodies that day and she includes poses that address their needs. She has quite a repertoire and knowledge to help every student!"
-Carolyn, age 78, student 5 years
"GREAT class today!! And my scoliosis realignment has improved so much from your classes this summer! I can see the difference and my muscles are so much more flexible and much stronger!! Can hardly wait for Thursday's class!"
-Kim, age 76, student 3 years
"Janet’s yoga classes on Zoom have been a real-life saver during this self-isolation. For one thing, having 2 classes scheduled during the week, gives some needed structure to the week. Otherwise, I find I don’t even know what day it is. I have found the classes are just as easy to follow as when we met in person. Janet has been so creative in teaching us some new yoga poses, as well as reviewing some we already know. She also gives us some insightful and thoughtful messages to help us achieve some calm and equanimity during this stressful time. An added bonus is the time before and after class to see our friends and find out about their lives. I feel keeping our body and mind healthy is of primary importance and these classes contribute greatly to that goal."

|Yoga for Seniors – an active class for people without significant medical issues. Warm-up and cool-down are done in a chair. Standing postures are practiced holding onto the seat of a chair, free-standing and using props. Props include a chair without arms, yoga block (or cardboard box or plastic box approximately 4″ x 6″ x 9″ packed solid), and a yoga strap or bathrobe tie 6′ long or longer. You should practice on a yoga mat or other non-skid surface.||2-3 pm PDT||Janet Rae Humphrey||JOIN NOW!|
Stand: Strong & Stable – an active yoga class at the wall and free standing for strength, balance and refinement of your standing yoga poses. You will need 40” to 60” of blank wall space to work your poses. You will be standing the entire hour. You will work on alignment of your body and improving your posture.
