Description
Yoga gives active people vital tools for healthy aging- strength, flexibility, balance, and focus. In this one-of-a-kind book, Sage Roundtree and Alexandra DeSiato clearly describe the what, why, and how of poses and routines that help keep people in any decade of life-but especially older people-fit and injury-free. Addressing the four biggest concerns of the older yoga student-balance, core strength, hip flexibility, and recovery- Lifelong Yoga is a unique and essential guide to the philosophy, poses, and routines that can help solve the challenges we encounter as we age. The authors offer poses and routines aimed toward specific goals, such as improving balance, maintaining strength and flexibility, or recovering properly between workouts. Each sequence is fully illustrated with photos and introduced with a brief overview of the benefits of the movements along with modifications and options suited to individual requirements. Lifelong Yoga also provides sequences that help support specific activities such as running, swimming, or golf-as well as yard work, travel, and caring for grandchildren. Straightforward schedules suggesting ways to incorporate yoga in daily routines illustrate how easy it is to receive yoga's benefits with minimal time commitment. Rountree and DeSiato also explain how meditation, mindfulness, breathing practices, and the physical practice of yoga can help with both mental flexibility and relaxation, and with staying focused and mentally acute. From the practical to the philosophical, at home or in class, Lifelong Yoga is a friendly, wise handbook for living in a changing body over the course of a long life.
