Aging Gracefully With Yoga

Angeline Monday, May 6, 2013 , , , , ,


Over the decades, Yoga has make a promising new direction for practitioner to overcome marital strife, illness, menopause, weight gain, and, now more than ever, the process of aging. In a culture that frames aging as a process of loss, a lifelong yoga practice offers myriad benefits. Yoga can give you a strength and a suppleness in physical that make you enjoy an active life as you age. Along the way it provide you a sense of self-acceptance and gradually quieting your ego of perfection.

I am grateful for my yoga practice and feels comfortable in my own skin
I'm slowly moving into that role as an elder teacher, a role model for women at any age and I take pride in that. My practice also tunes me in to my physical, mental, and emotional states. It provides tools to respond effectively to what I perceive. Adjusting my practice to balance intensity, depth, and inner equilibrium, I guide my practice toward developing awareness of more subtle and internal actions and states.
Four Stages of Life
We play four distinct roles as the drama of life unfolds: student, householder, forest dweller, and renunciation.

1st Stage: During the student years - childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood where our primary task is acquiring the knowledge and skills we will need to make our way in the world.

2nd Stage: We draw on these attainments when we become householders, immersing ourselves in the rush and roar of life as we go about earning a living, raising a family, and doing our civic duty. But here the resemblance ends.
3rd Stage: Retirement, defines us in terms of what we have left behind instead of what lies ahead. Up through our late 50s and into our 60s, our energy has been mainly focused on tangible achievements: earning a degree, building a career, raising children, acquiring property, perhaps making a name for ourselves.

4th Stage: As these familiar identities and activities from 3rd stage fall away, we find ourselves without a clear, purposeful direction.
Benefits of the yoga practice over time, it helps maintaining flexibility, lowering blood pressure, easing chronic conditions (back pain, arthritis, prevent major health crises like heart disease and strokes). Flexibility, skill, and vitality continue to sustain their bodies as we get older, but the self-acceptance, self-knowledge, and forgiveness that deepen and grow through yoga practice make aging a process of more an enjoyment. Yoga helps to retain strength, keep your movement and suppleness in shoulders, hips and spine
Change Your Life With Yoga
No matter what stage of life you’re in, an ongoing yoga practice has a lot to offer for you. Physically, it can help to improve your strength, flexibility and balance, and to address specific problems, such as PMS, back pain, hot flashes and poor digestion. Yoga requires that you focus exclusively on the present moment, which can help clear your mind and bring you a sense of peace.
Yoga can become your companion for life, something that can sustain you when you’re well, shore you up when you’re depressed, and support you when you’re sick. Yoga teach you to love yourself from the inside out. Think of your yoga practice as a mirror to your soul, as a barometer by which to gauge your feelings, and as a prescription for healthy action. We can’t promise that yoga will fix all your physical, mental and spiritual ills, but if you make the commitment to a regular practice, we can promise that yoga will change your life.
