…as well as her own personal thoughts and beliefs
Georgia Morissette is a 71 year old yoga teacher from Ottawa, Canada. My very first yoga class which was about 20 years ago was instructed by Georgia. Then 5 years ago, Georgia asked me if I wanted to teach chair Tai Chi at retirement residents. Since then I have been working with her. It has been a marvelous journey.
Georgia sings and dances in her chair yoga program and it really made me re-think and re-structure my own program for senior people. Georgia gave me some great ideas on how to teach at the retirement residents. It is totally different from a regular gym, studio or club.
Georgia was born in Hungary and moved to Canada at the age of 10. She speaks both English and Hungarian. She is a former elementary teacher and fitness instructor. She is now very active as a yoga instructor.
Georgia believes all food is good for you. She has no dietary restrictions at all. Her only rule – stop eating when you are no longer hungry.
