Yoga relieves the pain of being older

Yoga relieves the pain of being older

You may not consider yourself as being old or you may simply take the view that you are no longer young, however, if you are experiencing daily aches and pains, stiffness, or restricted movement, your body can make you feel old.

The western culture can be very desk-bound with over 9 hours of the day spent sitting either at work or at home. A large proportion of the population suffers from some form of back and neck pain usually caused by constantly having to hold the same position for long periods throughout their working lives.

This can catch up with you in your later years, with chronic pain reducing the amount of movement even further. The knock-on effect can often be that you hold your body in such a way as to avoid the pain which can lead to more bad posture and even more pain.

Unfortunately, unlike some other countries that have community programs to offer movement and exercise for the older generation, in the west, we rely more on operations to relieve joint and back pain and prescription tablets to manage the ongoing pain.
