I have learned that Yoga with the focus fitness is the oldest and best of structured exercise. The coordinated deep breathing with the poses/exercises is most important. Also, doing the stretches slowly and sustaining the poses longer gradually is what strengthens. Relaxation techniques and meditation techniques added to a good quality total body fitness approach is one of the best things a person can do for themselves, specially as we age. I know from experience and having had back surgury when I was a young woman, that there is nothing like Yoga to help strengthen your back and joints. I took up teacher training of Yoga a few years ago so as I will never stop doing it and by helpingn others am also helping myself. I got off track several times over the years and never want to do so again. Currently, I teach one class a week doing a complete body, mind and soul workout. I try to start each day with some stretches and poses before I even get out of bed and do bits and pieces of my full program throughout the day. Find a good teacher and give it a try, specially if you think your hips and back need some help! You will have nothing to lose and much gain. --- Namaste!
