By the time you are in your golden years, you may have lost 20 to 40 percent of your muscles—and, along with it, their strength. Scientists have discovered that a major reason you lose muscle is that you have stopped doing everyday activities that use those inactive muscles, and not just because you are growing older.
Yoga is one of the best exercises in the golden years to normalize your muscle tone, as well as to balance the activity of opposing muscle groups, and thus lowering your risk of falling, as well as injuring muscles and ligaments. As minimal effort is required, you feel relaxed rather than stressed—this is a plus in your senior years. In addition, unlike other strenuous exercises, your breathing remains natural and controlled throughout the exercise. In addition, you enhance your internalized awareness through focusing on your breath and the infinite. As a result, you attain peace and tranquility.
Yoga has a unique holistic approach to wellness. Yoga exercise also requires the application of its basic principle of nutrition, which is the consumption of small quantities of high-quality life-giving foods, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts, with meat in strict moderation.
Yoga provides physical fitness to reduce the risks of becoming ill, disabled, or dying prematurely. The mental fitness of yoga enables you to adapt appropriately to negative changes brought on by diagnosis and treatment of chronic disease. The spiritual fitness of yoga may facilitate you to bounce back from the devastating effects brought on by sudden and unexpected changes, such as bereavement of spouse or loved ones.
