Yoga for Seniors and
everyone else. Great for

Yoga for Seniors and Lymphs and everyone is else
is a hybrid yoga class taught in the Far Infra Red (FIR )studio.
The FIR studio generates healing Nitric Oxide that stimulates
the release of toxins in the body. As a result it deeply relaxes muscles
and so you can stretch into asanas ( poses) easily. Therefore
a beginner can move with ease and an advanced student
can go even deeper into the pose.

the Greater Portsmouth Area, Bob Vaccaro, is unique. It specializes in massaging the
muscles and soft tissue, including the lymphatic system.
For this reason the massaging action thus can reduce the inflammation of arthritis

Bob is also an Hippocrates Nutrition Practioner and can impart his knowledge
on diets that help the healing process of the body.
