About This Event

Six anti-gravity muscle groups are strongly used in yoga practice and become even more essential to focus on when working with an aging population. Engagement of these muscles increases postural control and decreases the risk of falls by allowing for greater neck range of motion and peripheral vision. Learn how utilizing and strengthening these muscle groups is essential to improving posture, core support, and head positioning.
