Why choose the Yoga over 50?
You could choose a different routine for each day, thus exploring your strengths each day. If you get bored with routine exercises, this Yoga DVD is perfect for you. Yogis in general would benefit from these non threatening sessions as they are mainly focused on people aged 50 and above.
Flexibility and strength begin to escape your body once you hit the middle age and flowing these routines will bring them flowing back. These moves are not so complicated that you would be tired out, yet are challenging enough to build a toned body around these workouts.
The Yoga over 50 yoga DVDs also have differently timed sessions for people who have different availability of time.
