Yoga is one of the best exercises for seniors with arthritis. Since arthritis restricts movement & yoga increases range of motion, yoga is a natural antidote to arthritis.
- Yoga loosens the muscles & increases flexibility & balance, which helps prevent falls & increases blood circulation.
- Yoga strengthens the joints, reduces pain, improves joint flexibility & helps them to function normally.
Over time, Yoga will help relieve stiffness & help you lead a healthier, more relaxed lifestyle. Each session will include some pranayama (yogic breathing), light yoga exercises, & relaxation. The program starts with simple stretches & gradually advances to more difficult poses.
