Ongoing yoga classes are offered in the Activity Center of Altos del Maria, a mountain community 90-kilometers west of Panama City. Surrounded by nature with banks of windows facing the valley view, the Center is a peaceful place for our morning yoga classes. We are often serenaded by birdsong or the sounds of wind and rain.

Yoga is for every body no matter the age. Most of us in Altos del Maria are 50-years old or older. Yoga is not so much about how well we do the poses, but about how we approach the practice of yoga with an open mind and heart, remembering to be gentle with ourselves. As we practice yoga, we tap into the source of our personal energy and vitality.

Classes are designed to ease students into and out of asanas (poses) with ease and grace. Variations and alternative poses are provided for those with less flexibility. Classes are 1 1/2-hours and include yang and yin forms of asana practice with gentle assists, pranayama (breath work) and a short meditation and relaxation period. By the end of class, we all feel a little bit of bliss.

Everyone is welcome to join us!
