The benefits of yoga for seniors are undeniable: a safe and effective yoga routine can improve breathing techniques, normalize your blood pressure, and balance the nervous system. Because yoga pays attentions to your body as a complete entity, the exercise can also help to maximize your well-being and happiness.
Because we are such big believers in the power of yoga for seniors, we want to let you know about one of our favorite iPhone applications -- Yoga STRETCH. Let's say you live in an area where there aren't any yoga classes, you don't belong to gym, or you just prefer to work out from the comfort of your own home, then it is not a bad idea to invest in Yoga STRETCH.
Consider Yoga STRETCH your personal yoga instructor to help you work on your strength, balance, fitness, flexibility, and posture. Trying up to 35 different poses, you can take advantage of a full 60-minute instructional class. Each pose comes with audio commentary and instructional images. You can also chose different background noises for your workout, like ocean waves, camp fire, transcendental whirlwind (whatever that means), to set the relaxing workout tone. All of this, for just a one-time .99 cent download.
Word of advice: yoga can be dangerous for your body if you don't follow the proper instructions. Therefore, we recommend that only seniors with some yoga experience use Yoga STRETCH.
