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!
