Conscious-Aging, Wisdom, Compassion
Welcome to Sacred Elders, my name is Kristen Beaulieu, E-RYT® 200, YACEP® and a conscious-aging advocate. After many years of working with, and for, seniors I have created Sacred Elders to offer services and support to seniors, their caregivers, and service providers. These services are inclusive of all experiences of aging as valid and worthy of being seen and supported.
Sacred Elders is the consolidation of my work and wisdom gained from teaching Yoga to Seniors for well over a decade. Along with my further education and study in psychology, meditation, and counseling, Sacred Elders frames the later stages of life from a conscious-aging perspective with the guiding principles of Yoga.
The fundamental objectives of Sacred Elders is to:
Offer Yoga-based tools and guidance to seniors, their families, and caregivers. Give an expanded perspective on how we can meet the experiences common to aging and gain a new and important understanding of ourselves in our elder years.
We acknowledge, with deep respect and gratitude, our home on the side of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. In the spirit of respect and truth, we honour and acknowledge the Banff area, known as “Minhrpa” (translated in Stoney Nakoda as “the waterfalls”) and the Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Îyârhe Nakoda (Stoney Nakoda) – comprised of the Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley First Nations – as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Blackfoot Confederacy comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Shuswap Nations, Ktunaxa Nations, and Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We acknowledge all Nations who live, work, and play here, help us steward this land, and honour and celebrate this place.
