Benefits of Yoga

Posted by West Ridge Care Center on Feb 7, 2017 12:08:33 PM

Growing older presents many gifts–maturity, grace, wisdom, experience and perspective to name a few. But it also has its set of challenges. The good news is that there are many things you can do to improve your well-being as a senior. Eating healthy, exercise, meditation and brain training exercises can help you improve your overall well-being. 

Yoga can also offer a wide array of health benefits. Here are just some of the many benefits of yoga for seniors:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • Maintain a balanced metabolism
  • Weight reduction
  • Cardio and circulatory health
  • Protection from injury
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Sharpens your mind
  • Boosts mood

We are excited to be able to offer a new yoga class at West Ridge! Brooke Ralston will be leading a chair yoga class at 10am on Monday mornings. Come and check it out!
