Study Review Shows that Yoga Keeps the Mind and Body Young
A recent review of the results of 22 clinical studies, performed by the researchers from the University of Edinburgh, UK, shows that yoga may help keep the mind and body of senior adults young.
The analyzed studies considered the effects of various yoga programs lasting from 1 to 7 months with sessions from 30 to 90 minutes.
The results demonstrate that people with average age 60 years and more who practice yoga regularly improved their physical balance, flexibility, and limb strength compared to their counterparts. These participants also showed lower levels of depression and better sleep.
The review's lead author Divya Sivaramakrishnan says: “Based on this study, we can conclude that yoga has great potential to improve important physical and psychological outcomes in older adults. Yoga is a gentle activity that can be modified to suit those with age-related conditions and diseases.”
