Wednesday, 23 March 2011
This year, millions of Americans will be turning 65, representing the first wave of the baby boomer generation to enter the golden years of retirement. Although leaving the workforce may bring up images of free time enjoyed with friends and family, this period of time may be stressful for older adults. Many of these individuals will be faced with difficult decisions regarding insurance, healthcare and finances.
As a result, meditation may help them remember to breathe deeply and remain calm while they are making plans for the future. Picking up a Dahn Yoga book can help seniors learn relaxing exercises and soothing postures that can stimulate both mind and body, encouraging a sense of holistic well-being.
The self healing practice of yoga has been lauded by countless people all over the world who have enjoyed its mental, emotional and physical benefits. According to My San Antonio, boomer yoga classes will be held throughout the area to promote seniors' well-being. By incorporating mindfulness exercises into their daily lives, they can alleviate stress and anxiety related to the significant changes that will take place in their lives as the retirement years arrive.
Dahn Yoga books make it convenient for practitioners who are new to the regimen to adopt its gentle exercises, whether they are at home, living in a retirement community or visiting family.
