Chair Yoga, Yoga over 50
Patti has been practicing Yoga as a personal journey for close to 17 years. Yoga helped her with the stress of owning a sign shop so when she retired Patti decided to focus on Yoga as her passion.
Patti attended a Yoga Teacher Training that was geared towards folks over 50 and also earned a separate certificate for Chair Yoga. She has been teaching Chair Yoga since November 2021.
Patti says, “I find Chair Yoga a beautiful way to share my knowledge of how important movement is at any stage of life.”
Patti will be leading a few participants in Chair Yoga during her presentation.
Founder & Director
The Red Tent Women's Initiative
Barbara is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and the founder of the Red Tent Women's Initiative, a nonprofit organization she started in 2021 for women in jail or at risk of being incarcerated.
The Red Tent Women’s Initiative offers an eight-week program for women nearing release from jail and/or prison. During this time, through trauma-informed care, therapeutic intervention, and education, participants learn a series of tools and techniques that help guide them on a new path long after release.
Red Tent has served approximately 1,000 women and is in the process of creating a virtual class that could be incorporated in any jail or prison throughout the U.S.
