Whatever your age or current physical state, a yoga practice can exponentially improve your overall health. Moving your body, focusing your mind and opening your soul on the yoga mat transforms your life off the mat. Yoga's many benefits include stress management, breathing efficiency, awareness, bone strength, and improved posture just to name a few.
Yoga is not only for the young and flexible—you can modify poses to suit every body type and level of ability. In fact, Yoga Journal's "Yoga in America" study found that 2.9 million American yogis are 55 or older.
Beyond age, yoga is infinitely malleable and can be adapted to benefit everyone from students with temporary injuries to paraplegics in wheelchairs and people who are permanently bedridden. There are no boundaries to the benefits and benefactors of yoga.
