We all know regular exercise is great for our health.  But recently, more and more people are looking into Yoga for better health.  Here are 3 reasons, according to the AARP, that you should practice Yoga when you are older.

First, those who practice Yoga 6 hours a week reduced their systolic blood pressure by a whopping 33 points.  Researchers think that the controlled breathing from Yoga helps decrease nervous system activity, which helps in managing blood pressure.  Another reason why Yoga is great for people age 50 and older is bone health.  At that age, many begin the develop osteoporosis and see decrease in bone density.  Since part of Yoga includes some weight-bearing activities, it can help slow down bone loss and lower your risk of osteoporosis.  Finally, extra inches on the waist is never good for your health.  Yoga is a great way to relax, exercise, and keep the extra pounds away
