If you’re looking for a gentle exercise that increases flexibility, yoga is a great option. Flexibility exercises such as yoga are great if your joints tend to be achy or stiff. Not only can these low-impact moves loosen your muscles, they can also tone your supporting muscles and help prevent injury.
Many yoga poses focus on balance and stability, both incredibly important as you age. Strengthening your muscles and improving your balance prevents the likelihood of falls which can be a common concern for older adults. Not only does it prevent them in the first place, but an increase in strength and stability also helps older adults recover should a fall occur.
