It's Sunday and I am sick in bed with a cold. Pumped up on vitamin C and zinc I can just see it now, my white blood cells moving through my blood stream like Ms. Pac Man. Ok, so I am really dating myself.
There is no doubt that a strong immune system is your best defense against a cold or flu. Vitamin C, Zinc and Oregano provide excellent support to prevent and speed recovery from colds and flus.
Personally, I love Platinum Naturals Oregano 8. which has helped me get back on my yoga mat within a few days more than once. To support your immune system through cold and flu season, try 1 capsule per day for good defense.
Health and happiness,
Practicing yoga offers so many health benefits to all ages, young and old. Many have experienced improvement to their physical, emotional and spiritual health. Offen of which, spill off into their everyday lives off the mat.
For newbies, yoga may still be mysterious and even daunting. But, don't let concerns about flexiblity, fitness level or age prevent you from experiencing the powerful healing benefits of a yoga practice.
Yoga has been well documented to improve flexibility, balance, relaxation and concentration. Improved lung capacity, stress reduction and better mood have also been reported.
Here are some of the health benefits you can receive from a regular yoga practice:
- Stronger immunity
- Healthy libido
- Lower blood pressure
- Improved muscle tone
- Better eye-hand coordination
- Better memory and cognitive function
- Better circulation
For those who suffer with debilitating conditions such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer, migraines, asthma, COPD, and back pain, these can be managed or alleviated from a regular yoga practice. Practicing yoga in a group forges strong social bonds, and a sense of community and friendship providing psychological benefits that are an important part of overall health and longevity.
Full schedule and class locations
Yoga has become quite mainstream these days. You may have heard your daughter, neighbor or friend talk about it or seen an advertisement somewhere. You have wondered maybe this is something I could try, but don't feel you have the strength, balance or flexibility. Yoga for Seniors is a specialized class geared towards helping those who are interested in benefiting their mental and physical health with confidence!
Taking part in a Seniors Yoga class has more to do with ability level than your age. This is not limited to those over 55, and is geared towards those who have trouble getting on or up from the floor. In a Seniors class, seated poses are done in a chair and chairs are used as support for balancing poses.
Inversions are avoided due to high blood pressure concerns. More attention is given to warming up the body and postures are held for a shorter period of time. Studies have shown that the practice of yoga (asana), including breath work (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana) offer numerous physiological and psychological benefits.
