Yoga is universal. Yoga is for all. Yoga is not reserved for the young and limber. In yoga, we strive to improve the health of our body, mind, and spirit—three things that can help people of all ages and skill levels. This is precisely what Kimberly Carson and Carol Krucoff aim to promote with Yoga for Seniors.
More than just a class, Yoga for Seniors is a community, a community that is shared through Pranamaya’s Carol Krucoff and Kimberly Carson’s yoga DVD for seniors. Read on to learn more about Carol and Kimberly, their background, and how Yoga for Seniors came to be.
