Balance and calm

Yoga

Yoga can be done purely for relaxation. Can’t get away to a class? Bring a class to your home through YouTube, Netflix, Amazon or buy a DVD. Start slow; you’re not in competition with anyone. Yoga is the opposite of ‘no pain no gain’ exercise.  It’s stretching, meditative. If you hurt: Stop! Listen to your body. You don’t have to force your body into a pose. Instead, go as far as you can comfortably go. You may be amazed at how much deeper you can go into a pose after only a few practice times. There are a variety of styles of yoga ALL of which increase flexibility, strength and balance. The good news is it’s free.

What matters most? Improving your flexibility and balance.
