Banyen's Description: 

Yoga offers vital tools for healthy aging: strength, flexibility, balance, and peace of mind. In this one-of-a-kind book, Sage Rountree and Alexandra DeSiato describe the poses and routines that can help keep people of any age fit and injury free. In addition to demonstrating simple ways to maintain and even increase our ability to be active into our 50s, 60s, and beyond, the authors—both yoga teachers and athletes with decades of experience—offer poses and routines aimed toward specific goals, such as improving balance, maintaining strength and flexibility, and recovering properly between workouts.

Each fully illustrated sequence is introduced with a brief overview of its benefits, along with modifications and options suited to individual requirements. Rountree and DeSiato also offer sequences that help support specific activities such as running, swimming, or golf, as well as yard work, travel, and caring for grandchildren. An easy-to-follow guide, Lifelong Yoga offers key practices for maintaining and improving physical and mental well-being throughout a lifetime.

Despite what you may have heard, you can build muscle tissue at any age. While your muscular growth will slow down as you age, strength training and weight bearing, as in yoga, produce results. And having good quantity and quality of muscle tissue as you get older will have a bearing on energy levels, overall health, and vitality.

 

A dedicated yoga practice builds those muscles, and it also builds discipline and perseverance—components important for both body and mind. Every time you practice, you reinforce a healthy habit of movement, breathing, and time to yourself free of electronic gadgets and other distractions. This discipline of practice creates a very specific type of mental strength.
