Staying flexible as you age is key in staying mobile and healthy. Move it or lose it has long been a catchphrase, but there is so much truth hidden in that little gem.
What is Yoga?
Yoga is a combination practice of mental, physical, and spiritual disciplines. It began in ancient India and is a Hindu philosophical tradition. Yoga is meant to increases awareness and lessen disease.
What are the Benefits of Yoga?
The benefits of yoga are amazing to say the very least. They have been touted to include:
- Increased happiness
- Weight loss
- Hair growth
- Increased energy
- Stress reduction

While we may only be as young as we feel when it comes to age, we can only manage to continue to feel like our previously young selves if we can still move and effectively keep up our daily lives.
By age 60 many Americans will struggle in their daily routine due to stiffness, pain, weakness, aches, depression, and even malnutrition. With weak bones and joints, immunity level decreases and illness can creep in. Staying busy and active can help immensely.
Taking classes such as yoga, stretching, or even doing physical therapy can keep you limber and energized. You may not even realize you are losing precious flexibility over the years if you are constantly seated at a desk job.
Time goes by and suddenly you just feel “old”.
This doesn’t have to be the case.
Ask your chiropractor how you can safely limber up. They will give you exercise recommendations based on your current state of physics health along with a treatment plan for chiropractic adjustments to make sure that you are starting out your health journey on the right track with everything in proper alignment.
