Yoga for Healthy Aging
Yoga instruction for older adults supporting physical, mental, and emotional wellness for a quality health span.
Hi There! I’m Bonnie Golden and…
…I want you to practice your yoga!
I craft individual and group offerings for people across the lifespan. I have seen first-hand that yoga will enhance our health and well-being holistically: body, mind, and breath.
For each person and group I work with, I design a personalized yoga practice. I’ll interweave my vast experience and training in yoga, fitness, bone health, and more to serve you.
Why do I teach yoga for healthy aging?
I’ve been an adult educator my entire career, as a higher education faculty member and a yoga teacher. I’ve taught scores of rooms full of students like you ranging from age 18-89. Holistic yoga and related disciplines have helped me and my students survive and thrive through a number of different challenges in life.
I teach because I love sharing the tools for holistic healing that have helped me! Yoga helps:
Healthy management of low bone density/osteoporosis through fracture/fall prevention
Back pain and chronic sacroiliac joint issues
Pelvic floor health
Anxiety and stress
Balance, flexibility, strength
Meditation that works for me
I’ve cultivated the perfect combination of skills, training, and experience to offer an interdisciplinary and creative approach so you can practice your yoga.

Some Nice Words from Students:
“Bonnie has crafted a rich, concise, and above all accessible program of yoga for aging bodies. Chock full of practical and life changing information, all served up with humor and lots of support. What’s not to love?” Donna C.
“I joined Bonnie’s Female Pelvic Floor Workshop, part 2 of her “Yoga for Healthy Aging” series. I had already been to pelvic floor workshops and just felt I needed a refresher. I learned so much from Bonnie that two hours went by in a flash. Bonnie took us through a varied series of exercises and demonstrations, with printouts we could take home and use for a daily practice. I discovered the anatomy of the pelvic floor and learned I was exerting way too much effort in my interpretation of the exercises. Thank you, Bonnie! Your guidance has really made a difference.” Donna T.
“This was an excellent program. Bonnie has a deep understanding of Yoga philosophy, motion, balance and strength. She is able to combine all of these…extremely relevant to this of us facing aging with the need for healthy and wise instruction. This was just what I needed.” Louise G.
“Bonnie has broken down a wide range of information into very understandable segments.” Jere M.
