Third Age Yoga For Seniors

Yoga helps make my life better. Before yoga, my lower body was stiff from the radiation treatments and I couldn’t bend over at all. My muscles were so tight, they felt as though they would tear. It took a year of daily practice to get me limber. I still have balance problems, along with neuropathy but I feel better and that’s all that matters to me. My muscles will stiffen up again if I don’t practice daily, so yoga is at the top of my “to-do” list, no matter what else is going on. It’s an important part of my self-care routine, something I didn’t do enough of before I got sick.

There are many yoga videos on You Tube and that’s where I find teachers who I can keep up with. Going to a physical class is too hard for me because of my mobility. I’m sure the instructors wouldn’t be happy if I scratched their beautiful floors with my walker either, so practicing at home is a good option for me.

I’ve already shared a few yoga videos with you, but in my opinion, it’s always good to have many choices, and I don’t know about you, but I like to mix things up. Doing the same poses everyday gets a bit boring, so here’s a new video especially for seniors and those of us who want a more nurturing, relaxed yoga.

Be well and practice daily self-care,

Gentle Yoga Poses Anyone Can Do

I just found some terrific yoga videos and want to share them with you. They are gentle and easy to follow. Some can be done sitting inĀ  a chair and I even found one that you can do in bed! So if you are stuck in bed for a while, you can still get exercise and we all know our bodies love to keep moving. Movement keeps our Qi (energy, life force) flowing. It helps release built up toxins and just feels good!
