Yoga basics for older adults by Leigh Crews
Yoga is a centuries-old system for living handed down to us as an interwoven tapestry of physical and spiritual elements. In the west, we typically think of the physical aspects when we say we "do yoga." Yet, yoga's mental aspects are woven throughout the physical movements. Yogic movement and poses (asanas), combined with yogic breathing techniques (pranayama) and guided relaxation or meditation (dhyana), form the basic fabric of yoga practice.
