7 or 70 years old – Why is Yoga meant for all ages?

Yoga meant for all ages

7 or 70 years old – Why is Yoga meant for all ages?

In today’s stressful environment where most of us are practically juggling with life 24 X 7, everybody realizes the mandate for good health. However, are we referring only to people aged 30 and beyond?

Do you often lecture your child to study harder? Do they often need to be pulled away from distractions? Ever wonder why your teenager constantly fidgets and how unaware is he about his bubbling energy – which is often disruptive to others in the family and social situations? Is your teenage daughter obsessed with her body and what she eats?

As a young adult, you often found yourself speaking before thinking your thoughts through, and soon regret your lightening pace of words. This affects relationships at work as well as at home. As we grow in age and responsibilities, most of us feel as if we simply cannot stop the whirlwind of thoughts spinning in their heads.

Mind, Body, and Spirit are the 3 things that every human being possesses irrespective of race, gender, geographical location, and age!

While it seems that our body does most of the work, it is the invisible mind which sets the instruction manual for every hour of life. And when you want to live life a certain way – have the top grades in school, be invited by Ivy-League colleges, be on a fast-track promotion at your workplace or have healthy relationships around you – the right instruction manual would help you achieve whatever you want to.

Hence, syncing the mind and the body in the right direction is of prime importance in today’s highly volatile environment.

Benefits for Young Minds: For the young minds, Yoga helps improve concentration, memory, social skills, overall physical, mental and emotional health, self-confidence and expression. Yoga helps to cultivate discipline, decisiveness, increases stamina, reduces laziness, anger, and rebelliousness. Teenage girls develop a healthier body image and a greater sense of self-esteem.

Yoga for Kids

Benefits for Adults: When the gentle stretching, deep breathing, and guided relaxation are integrated, any kind of bodily tension disappears. The nervous system and emotions become calm and there is a sense of renewal in the body, the mind and spirit. However, the greater benefits of yoga are arguably the psychological ones. Yoga combines physical activity with self-awareness, which promotes a mind-body connection that most of us, even in our adulthood, lack.

Yoga for adults

Benefits for Seniors: Yoga helps seniors age with grace. As you retire, you become more sensitive to the changes in your body as well as in the environment around you. This is when you tend to appreciate the benefits of yoga in a more immediate sense. When practiced regularly, yoga offers numerous health benefits, such as increased strength and flexibility, and decreased blood pressure and cholesterol levels. As a form of isometric exercises, the prolonged holding of Yoga postures tones and strengthens the muscles and internal organs.

Yoga for Older Adults

Yoga has a theme for everyone – 

From channelizing a child’s creative energy, enabling some time and space with no performance pressures for adults and building physical and emotional balance in seniors, the Dallas yoga fest promises to offer something for everyone. Attend the upcoming Dallas Yoga Fest and learn how to use the postures of yoga to embrace and support yourself in every stage of life!

    I think that everyone especially children with special needs would greatly benefit from yoga sessions. In the long term it would enhance their ability to focus and attend to relevant stimuli. I encourage parents of children with special needs to participate in this free event with an expert yoga teacher.

    For someone like me who enjoyed weight training since early teens and throughout my 20’s…discovering yoga has been a true blessing for my mind and body now that I’m in my 30’s.

    While I still enjoy having a solid gym session with weights and long runs, by adding meditation to my workout provides a soothing effect for mind & I’m able to channelize the surge of energy in a more productive manner.

    Yoga is ancient science which was lost in a due course of time which we need to re-adopt. Yoga is extremely powerful way to maintain our health.
