This 72-year old plugger took up yoga exercise last year and found that it really did help. I sat in a job for 30+ years with irregular bouts of exercise. I was worried about my balance and flexibility and found a yoga therapist who set up a series of exercises that has helped me regain strength in some forgotten muscles and acquire a better sense of balance. Not only can I get out of a chair on my own, but I can get up off the floor after playing with the dog in one motion and can carry the laundry basket up and down stairs without leaning on the rail. My ‘warrior’ series isn’t pretty to watch, but I can transition well enough to maintain my balance throughout, and that was my goal.
