Let us Help you on your Road to Healing & Recovery!
Your body has an innate ability to heal. Just like your skinned knee eventually healed when you were a young child, your body knows how to heal wounds, broken bones, damaged soft tissues and even organs… given the right environment. Certainly, much of the healing process occurs over time. Therefore, patience and diligence are key to assisting your body on its amazing healing journey.
Current surgical protocols advise movement shortly after surgery to encourage the flow of energy (prana) through the body. Most importantly, this helps kick-start the healing process. Indeed, moving our body requires muscular action. As a result, this propels blood flow through the 60,000 miles of vessels to bring nutrients to the healing location. In addition to muscular action, oxygen is needed for cellular function in order to kill bacteria and generate resistance to infection. Oxygen also stimulates the creation of new blood vessels and aids growth factors to form new skin. Consequently, gentle breathing practices are very important in our body’s healing process.

How Best to Approach Healing & Recovery?
Firstly, always check in with your doctor and/or healthcare provider to determine what movement practices are best for your condition. Secondly, be patient. Without a doubt, healing takes time, consistency and compassion for yourself. Most likely, you will feel frustrated and impatient as you want to get yourself back to “normal” once again. Therefore, meditation practices like Yoga Nidra, Guided Visualizations and Sound Healing practices are important to reduce your stress levels.
YogaVista.TV is here to provide support during your Healing Journey! For instance, we have lots of movement and meditation practices that will help you get back to YOU! In other words, we are here to guide and encourage you with our structured Wellness Practices.

Workshop: Yoga for Aging – The Anatomy of Movement
We are all aging… that is undeniable. However, what happens to our bodies as we age varies from person to person. Although there are universal aspects of aging, we can actually modify and/or control many of them in order to lead healthier lives. In this Workshop, Sherry Zak Morris, C-IAYT and E-RYT, discusses what happens to our structures as we age. In addition, she explains how these structural changes can be manifested in people over the age of 50 via their posture and gait (walking pattern). Lastly, she provides information on what we can do in a Yoga practice to counteract these changes and/or diminish their progression.
Note: This Workshop is included in various YogaVista.TV subscription plans. It is an excerpt from the full 4-Hour workshop: Foundations of Yoga for Seniors and the Anatomy of Aging.
