Some benefits of performing yoga for seniors

The Benefits of Yoga in the elderly population

Our senior population is growing rapidly, as is their interest in leading active, fit lives. On the whole, we live longer than we used to, and we all want high-quality living and good health to be a part of our older years. As we grow older, however, we typically become more susceptible to ailments that are linked to aging, and, as a result, we tend to move less. The less we move, the more susceptible we become to a variety of ailments, and so it becomes a truly vicious cycle.

The importance of stretching for elderly and seniors

Stretching is an important part of elderly and seniors flexibility, and will help offset the effects of the normal decline in the flexibility of your joints. It will also help you remain active and independent.

As we age, muscles become shorter and lose their elasticity. 
Aging can affect the structure of your bones and muscles causing pain and decreased range of motion in the shoulders, spine, and hips.  

It becomes very important for seniors to maintain range of motion and the ability to move all joints normally with activities during the day.
