Lubricates the Joints
The practice of yoga increases the lubrication within the joints, ligaments and tendons. Yoga is very low impact, as the poses (asanas) work on precision and correct alignment.
Because the poses are held for a set time, this gives the body an opportunity to increase blood flow and supply all areas of the body with the vital supplies that they need.
They also help to correct and balance the roles that the joints, ligaments and tendons play together, in providing the support that the body’s limbs need to function properly.
It is very important that your joints remain well lubricated because if they are not, it will begin to limit your mobility and you will become more susceptible to injuries. If this is the case, you can start to say hello to all kinds of aliments that come when parts of your body are failed to be maintained.
It is important also to remember that you should eat a certain amount of foods that contain "good" fats such as avocado, almond nuts etc. These provide the body with the lubricating matter that they need to function at a efficient and effective level of excellence..
It is never to late to start yoga and start reversing the signs of aging. Aging we believe is the result of failing to maintain your body. Once again we bring up the saying – "use it or lose it!"
