Livewell Assited Living

You are never too old to start practicing yoga.

Yoga has a reputation for being something exclusively for young people, but luckily, that isn’t actually the case. Yoga is a wonderful thing for people of all ages, including older people. You can learn about some of the benefits that we have already talked about by reading our latest blog. Today, our in home care experts in Raleigh will be going over the last few benefits of yoga for seniors:

#7. Strong Bones

In one study, half of the participants with osteoporosis practiced yoga for two years and half did not. The participants who practiced yoga not only avoided the bone loss that the other participants experienced, they even had an increase in bone density.

#8. Diabetes Management

Keeping blood sugar levels low can feel like a constant struggle for people who have diabetes. But luckily, yoga can help reduce blood sugar levels. One study found that, after forty days of practicing yoga, participants with diabetes found notable improvements in their disease.

#9. Sharp Mind

A big part of yoga is concentration. When you practice blocking out the world and concentrating on your breathing and the movement of your body, it keeps you centered and focused.

#10. Low Strain Exercise

Yoga is a wonderful form of exercise for people who are intimidated or can’t handle a more vigorous workout. When practiced properly, yoga puts very little (if any) strain on the body. However, as with any form of exercise, you should consult your physician before you try it.
