Many are not aware of the numerous blessings yoga provides for maturing citizens. I would like to share with you a few reasons why the aging population can benefit from yoga as well as various practices for receiving the blessings offered by yoga.   I believe it is important to note for those individuals who are turned-off by the idea of yoga that the practice does not have to be referred to as yoga…but rather “functional movement.”   Reasons to Practice Yoga:
  • Yoga increases your quality of life in all facets.
  • Yoga addresses special health concerns, injuries, or limitations in order to increase awareness and to avoid injury or reinjury.
  • Yoga is a proven form of stress management.
