Let’s work on your strength & mobility! Changes in balance, mobility, and muscle strength are often associated with aging and tend to interfere with daily living activities as well as our overall functional capacity. Even the simplest activities, like walking, become more and more difficult within the elderly population, particularly due to loss of mobility and muscle strength.
Muscle strength starts to deteriorate quite early with losses of about 12%–15% per decade after 50 years of age, and this figure might go as high as 50% in people over 80. The most important thing is to identify this subtle loss of mobility and strength, and understand the importance of adding simple exercises to your fitness routine to help avoid valuable functional losses.
The Strength and Mobility class at Yin Yang Yoga Loft does exactly that! We offer exercises with resistance bands, gymnastic balls, Body Braid and light weights to help maintain joint mobility while developing muscular strength to protect joint stability.
This is a fun class for anyone looking to improve overall strength & mobility, offering enough challenges while emphasizing proper form and safe Yoga practice.
Open to all levels.
