Hatha yoga, commonly referred to as "yoga" has been a part of the Indian culture and religion for
thousands of years. The sages understood the importance of balancing body, mind and spirit. The
series of exercises and breathing provides the muscular and skeletal movements needed for agility and well being. Because the internal organs do not get a lot of exercise, the yoga postures you practice provides internal as well as external benefits. Meditation is part of yoga practice and stills the mind,
giving you a feeling of peace and calm.
Yoga classes are readily available in most communities. Local hospitals now offer health and wellness classes and yoga may be included as part of their curriculum. Many classes are designed for older people and those with limited mobility.
If you feel drawn to this form of exercise, see what your community has to offer. The benefits can change your life and you can enjoy improved health at any age.
As always, consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program.
Until next time we wish you love, good health, prosperity, happiness and peace.
