Yoga for Balance & Aging
As you age, your body changes.

The composition of muscle fibers changes, altering your reaction time. Your central nervous system and brain change. Your joints and muscles stiffen, and your balance suffers. A fall can be disastrous.

Yoga can help improve balance as you age. It strengthens your body, decreases stress and brings calm. The bending, reaching and stretching of daily function is enhanced by yoga.

Listen in as Carol Dickman shares how yoga can help you get strong and maintain balance as you age.
