Older adults can benefit from Yoga

Osteoporosis, arthritis, and loss of strength are traditional dangers of old age that can improve with regular exercise. If jogging, aerobics or golf aren't for you, you might want to consider the age-old practice of yoga.

Yoga helps develop a balance between mind and body by using physical postures, or asanas, breathing techniques and guided relaxation. Yoga asanas exercise the entire body while increasing flexibility, strength and stamina. Breathing exercise help reduce stress and increase the flow of energy through the body, while calming and integrating the mind and body.

"You don't have to be a human pretzel to practice yoga," said Dr. Robert Luchi of the Huffington Center on Aging at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. "It is a very individualized practice and you should never strain or stretch farther than is comfortable."
