Georgia Morissette is a 71 year old yoga teacher in Ottawa area. My very first yoga class about 20 years ago was instructed by Georgia. Then 5 years ago, Georgia asked me if I wanted teach chair Tai Chi at retirement residents. Since then I have been working with her.
She 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 Hungarian and moved to Canada age of 10. She speaks English and Hungarian. A former teacher and fitness instructor.
Georgia believes all food are good for you. She has no diet restrictions at all. Her only rule - stop eating when she is no longer hungry.
