Yoga for Mature Muscles
By Andrea Shliapa
As we age, our bodies become more and more used to postures and positions that may not be conducive to flexibility and pain free living.
Youth affords us all many physical benefits. One of the most important physical features of youth often taken for granted is a natural tendency to be flexible in major muscle areas. Think about how easy it was when we were younger to jump up from a chair or twist our bodies to pick something up.
As years go by, our bodies become a bit more “accepting” of the sedentary nature of our lives by adapting to hours of sitting or repetitive motion. Our muscles begin to tighten and our range of motion begins to shrink. Then one day, you find yourself in serious pain after simply reaching for a coffee cup.
There is some good news though!
The human body is always up for some change! All we have to do is commit to a well thought out and well paced transition from inflexible to flexible. Warming up muscles before stretching, making sure to change positions frequently during the day, avoiding sitting in a chair for more than an hour without standing up, etc.
Worcester Fitness is now offering a fantastic new program that will speed up your transition into a more flexible, healthier body. It’s called 3M Yoga™.
3M Yoga™ is taught by our own Denleigh Grniet who has dedicated her professional life to fitness, wellness and health. Denleigh has worked with hundreds of clients during her career concentrating on a extremely effective blend of yoga sensibilities and cardio and strength conditioning. 3M Yoga™ is something that Denleigh feels can help mature fitness enthusiasts become stronger and more flexible, even if they have NEVER taken a yoga class before.
3M Yoga™ is a gentle yoga class that will improve balance, flexibility, foot health, range of motion, mobility, mind, and overall health. You can participate in this class in either a floor or chair setting.
Remember the three “M’s” for 3M Yoga™ – Movement for the Mature Muscles. If you are older, 3M Yoga is the perfect way to get introduced to yoga!
