More of a POWER YOGA session today. I'm getting chubby into my 9th week of quarantine!!
Hi! I am a 60+ year old Certified Yoga Teacher and Martial Arts Instructor. Here you will find my at home and at the gym Yoga practice, AND a few yoga school classes as well!
JOIN ME in my (almost) daily yoga practice! Every class will be slightly different and, as you can see, my strength and flexibility changes from day to day. That is perfectly normal. Just do the best you can as you follow along.
This channel is about keeping Martial Arts or other SPORTS FLEXIBILITY, with MODIFIED Intense Yoga Sessions, full and partial classes; and also my own LONG HOLD “Yin” style of yoga with 30 second to 1 minute stretches - to maintain flexibility and to counter joint and muscle pain as we age.
YOGA: I have studied YOGA since 1967 and am Certified by Delhi Yoga in India, qualifying for Registration with the Yoga Alliance of America at the Advanced Level. Styles studied include Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda, Power Vinyasa Flow, Bikrams, Hatha, Yin, and Pranayama.
MARTIAL ARTS: I am also a Black Belt Registered with the American Federation of Jiu Jitsu; 2020 is my 48th year of martial arts practice (studying up to Black Belt in 4 different styles). I have 30 years of Karate, 9 years of Taekwondo, 8 years of Muay Thai, and am now working towards my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt.
Styles of martial arts studied include Karate (Wado Ryu, Goju Ryu, Shotokan), Tae Kwon do, Muay Thai, Shintoshi, Brazilian and Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Krav Maga, Tai Chi, Kali, Silat, JKD, and Capoiera.
In 1977 I traveled to Tokyo, Japan to study Karate at the world renowned Karate University of Nichidai.
I am also a Surgical Nurse (Military Trained); a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist through NESTA (The National Endurance Sports Training Association); and a former Asst. Physical Therapist.
Thank you for your support!!
