I am starting YOGA for the first time ever. I used to workout years ago, but I am unable to start again related to work schedule. I am 59 years old and have some stiffness. Where can I find effective stretching exercises to help me with my YOGA?

i will be 80 in august...(it only SOUNDS old!); have been doing yoga since 1965 and teaching since 1974. my students range from teens to 50's. some day, in the far-distant future, i plan to teach "seniors".....but-not-yet! i have had several severe health issues, most of which have been resolved thanks to yoga.

I have only recently found yoga,I struggle with the balance at time,I am 65 years young,but I'll be darned if it will beat me.I am loving Yoga,thank you for the wise comments,I do not see myself as older,in fact I feel as good as when I was 45.

Thank you for all these wise comments on aging. I am now 70 years young and have just started doing yoga for the past two years. I am an avid bicycle rider and feel yoga has helped improve my breathing ability along with my mind and thoughts on aging. They say you are only as old as you feel. As long I keep moving, riding, weight training and working on my yoga poses, I feel younger with each passing year.

Regarding dressing your age, I am 69 and I love my Levis. I can still wear a pair that are 30 plus years old. People say you should dress your age but I think it is irrelevant.
