The Benefits of Yoga for Older Adults
Yoga connects the mind and body by combining stretching and strengthening poses with deep breathing and relaxation. Despite its Eastern philosophical roots, yoga as practised in the West is primarily concerned with physical fitness. It is not explicitly religious, while having a spiritual component. Participating in yoga can help people of all faiths and belief systems.
Yoga is safe for seniors of all fitness and skill levels since the positions (called asanas) may simply be tweaked or customised to meet an individual’s needs. In fact, it can be a great way to maintain your body strong and healthy without the joint stress that comes with weightlifting or jogging.
