Yoga is a gift for older people. One who studies yoga in the later years gains not only health and happiness, but also a freshness of mind since yoga gives one a bright outlook on life. One can look forward to a satisfying, more healthful future rather than looking back into the past. With yoga, a new life begins, even if started later. Yoga is a rebirth which teaches one to face the rest of one’s life happily, peacefully, and courageously. — Geeta S. Iyengar, YOGA, A Gem For Women
Read an Excerpt from The New Yoga For People Over 50
yoga over 50 The New Yoga for People Over 50 presents delightful vignettes of real people who have used yoga to improve the quality of their lives. I wholeheartedly agree with Suza Francina that youthfulness, strength and flexibility are not prerequisites to yoga practice, but are it’s benefits. More important, her book makes them available to students of all ages.
