    • About the sessions:

    • Tai Chi: 

      As explained by Harvard Health Publishing, there is growing evidence that Tai Chi, a mind-body practice that originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. 

      In this low-impact, slow-motion exercise, you go without pausing through a series of motions named for animal actions – for example, "white crane spreads its wings" – or martial arts moves, such as "box both ears." As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention – as in some kinds of meditation – on your bodily sensations. Tai Chi differs from other types of exercise in several respects. The movements are usually circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched. Tai Chi can be easily adapted for anyone.

      Ageless Grace:

      Ageless Grace® is a cutting-edge brain fitness program based on neuroplasticity that activates all 5 functions of the brain – strategic planning, memory/recall, analytical thinking, creativity and imagination, kinesthetic learning – and simultaneously addresses all 21 physical skills needed for lifelong optimal function. This is a wellness program consisting of 21 simple exercise tools designed for all ages and abilities.

      A study at Harvard showed that a most effective way to stave off Dementia is for the body to move and create new patterns for the brain- rather than separating body and mind exercises. This program was designed with this in mind, and consists of everyday movements, which are natural and organic. These seated movements stimulate cognitive function in the various areas of the brain focusing on the healthy longevity of the body and brain.

    • Qigong: 

    • Qigong is a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditationsaid to be useful for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance the mythical life-force qi.

      Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow-flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind. People practice qigong throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, preventive medicine, self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation, self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.

    • Movement as Healing:

      Our bodies were made to move and in movement lives potential healing. Oftentimes we have preconceived ideas that movement has to be a dance style or these big grandiose movements, but movement can be subtle and soulful. This session provides everyone an opportunity to move to the rhythm of their own hearts and souls. Participants will be guided and supported through a movement experience that will allow them to feel safe in their own movement explorations. Upon completion of the movement experience participants will have the time and space to engage in reflection time via writing or art.

    • Accessible Yoga for Healthy Aging:

    • This gentle class honors the roots of yoga while offering variations of Hatha Yoga postures, Yi Jin Jing practices, and body and breath awareness techniques to maintain, restore, and protect health as we age. Recommended props include a yoga mat/rug, blanket, and chair. The goal is not simply to accept our differences, but to celebrate them! Join me for a truly welcoming community of practice!

    You will receive the Zoom meeting link after you complete your registration, then a reminder every morning of the week.

    Brain Power for Life: How Early Development Influences Your Life Course

    Date: April 2nd, 2024

    Time: 4 pm PT / 7 pm ET

    Duration: 60 minutes

    Speaker: Judy Romano, MD, FAAP, RYT, BLS

    This webinar examines the relationship between early brain development and dementia prevention. The fundamentals of early brain development and child development have advanced in recent years through advances in neuroscience, molecular biology, and genomics allowing understanding of how early experiences are built into the human body and brain. The human brain is developed by a dance between genetic factors and the environment. The recognition of the effects of early stress that is toxic in nature resulting in physiologic disruption has been well studied and documented. These effects can result in disruptions of development for children and have negative effects on health throughout the lifespan.

    Biology and experience are not destiny, however, and resilience is the antidote! High on the list of ways to develop and grow resilience are familiar to yoga practitioners and teachers - meditation and mindfulness practices, especially gratitude practices and the recognition of the importance of relationships. Adherence to overall personal wellness practices as described by the ARPF 4 Pillars provides the blueprint for the mitigation of the effects of stress on early development while supporting healthy resilience.

    The 4 Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention

    - Diet and Supplements

    - Stress Management

    - Exercise: Mental and Physical

    - Spiritual Fitness

    1 Hour CE program for C-IAYT applied for. Register and you'll automatically receive the recording.

    What You Will Learn:

    Understand the fundamentals of early brain development.

    - Understand how the cumulative knowledge of early brain and child development is based on advances in neuroscience, molecular biology, and genomics.

    - Understand how early experiences are built into our bodies and that significant adversity produces physiologic disruptions.

    - Describe the role of resilience as it relates to development throughout the life span.

    - Relate early brain development to dementia prevention.

    Your Esteemed Speaker: Judy Romano, MD, FAAP, RYT, BLS

    After serving the community for 30 years as a Pediatrician, Dr. Judy Romano is enjoying bringing yoga to the community in fresh and exciting ways. She is certified in Yoga Medicine which believes yoga is accessible to everyone, enhancing health and longevity. She is also a Certified Brain Longevity Specialist through the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation. Dr Judy’s classes blend knowledge of anatomy, movement, and the use of yoga as a therapeutic modality to meet each student where they are in the practice. Mindfulness and meditation practices along with the physical postures allow for a well-rounded experience for both mind and body.

    Dr Judy’s interest and expertise in early childhood brain development was reflected in her professional work at the local, state, and national levels. She was a national speaker for the American Academy of Pediatrics on the science of early brain development and continues to serve the Governor of Ohio on the Ohio Early Childhood Advisory Council. She is currently interested in how the principles of brain health are applicable across the life span and how research is ushering in a new paradigm for all ages.
