I have been diagnosed with stage 1 cervix prolapse. Does doing shoulder stand improve the cervix prolapse condition?


I began practicing yoga in my 50's and now at the age of 68 I am working on my 500 hr. RYT.

I am looking for a gentle yoga class for someone with arthritis in Seattle - does anyone know of one? I also have some pretty bad injurys to contend with and really need to get into a class.

I am delighted to read of the benefits people are experiencing with yoga practices. I am a yoga teacher with a yoga therapy qualification and spend all of my time withe older, disabled people in sheltered housing here in Scotland. Everyone has something positive to say about their experiences through the practrices and I love it as much as they do - right up into their nineties!


I am 31 but it is so beautiful to imagine my yoga continuing with me for decades and decades . . I hope I am lucky enough to be able to practice yoga in my 70s and 80s like the wonderful people in this article.


I'm so glad older Americans are embracing yoga. I know from personal experience that it works! I feel 100% better than I did prior to having a regular practice. My hope is to teach it to as many others like myself as I can.

I so agree! I teach at a Retirement Village and absolutly love my older students. They have no ego and a wonderful sense of humour. I love listening to their stories and feel I have learnt a lot from my Golden Oldies.
