I need more info

For those of you who need a bit more information… we all know that balance is a problem as we get older. But did you know that there is something you can do about it now? And that is exercise! Exercise can help counteract this problem as the brain ‘practices’ co-ordinating the muscles, movement improves, and the muscles get stronger. In turn, this leads to a reduced chance of falls and injury.

Now, exercise should be fun. It’s not a chore, it’s not punishment. So, find something you enjoy doing. Or, find a way to add it into your daily life so you don’t even notice it.

How about trying yoga?

Yoga improves your balance by strengthening the lower body, particularly the ankles and knees, therefore reducing your chances of falling later in life. In fact, the NHS recommends yoga for older adults to help improve their balance and co-ordination. It also recommends that yoga ‘is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity’ for everyone, and beneficial for ‘strength, flexibility and balance.’’

Yoga for any body, yoga for your body

You probably think that yoga is just for young, fit people, but this is not true! The style of yoga that I teach is specifically designed to be more accessible for people over the age of 50. It is slower and more considered, gentle on the joints, and I use extra kit so that everyone can do the moves, and feel comfortable doing them too.

It’s never too late to start!
