Build and Maintain Stability with Yoga

IMG_3635 IMG_2912 IMG_2434Often it isn’t realized just how important stability is until it diminishes.  Stability of body effects how we live, and the activities that we partake in.  Physical stability equates to freedom to do the things we love.  Yoga can aid in building and maintaining stability at any age.  In the nine-week study on the benefits of yoga therapy for improving balance and postural stability, researchers at the School of Podiatric Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia examined whether a nine-week program of Iygengar yoga could help improve the postural stability and balance of 24 elderly females. After the study period, participants showed improvements on several factors related to their ability to balance: they had a faster stride, increased flexibility in the lower part of the body and an improved single-leg stance.  This is only one study, and yes there are others.

I have taught many students over the past 12 years, with ages ranging from 5 years old to 80 years old.  Increased stability occurs when there is a commitment to regular practice.  The standing poses require that one must learn how to activate pelvic floor muscles and core muscles in a way that stabilizes.  Awareness of what needs to happen in your body to hold any given pose is developed over time.  The key is to find a practice that  moves at a pace that is right for you, and provides necessary props.  A skilled teacher can offer modifications that will make the poses safe for each individual.

At Blue Sky Yoga there are a variety of classes offered to suit all levels of practice.  Yoga is for everyone.  Show up, and we will begin practice, and communication to make this work for you.
