Yoga increases flexibility, breathing and posture awareness, and helps with relaxation and stress reduction. Yoga is a self-paced activity, which means that not everyone has to perform a pose in the same way or hold it for the same amount of time. Most poses can be modified depending on your needs. You can even practice yoga in a chair.
Yoga classes and private sessions are held at many fitness centers, senior centers, and community recreation centers. Since there are many types of yoga, it is important to contact the instructor or the facility prior to starting a class to see if its a right fit for you.
