Building Strength gives you more Energy and Endurance
It’s obvious one needs optimal heart health and endurance to become a marathon runner. However, everyday life also requires those physical attributes. For example, climbing steps and walking from our parked car into a store require endurance. Certainly, having a healthy heart will keep us independent and functional in our daily lives.
We have a choice as we age: we can become weak and frail, or we can be strong, sturdy and resilient. The choice is ours to make.
Why is your Heart Health so Important for Aging Well?
When you think of Yoga, you might think of its common benefits like increased flexibility, more range of motion and stronger muscles. However, Yoga’s benefits go beyond what you see in your physical structure. Yoga can actually improve the quality of your cardiovascular function as you age. The main function of the cardiovascular system is to maintain blood flow to all parts of the body. Basically, to allow it to survive. But age creates changes and deterioration in cardiovascular functions, which means you won’t be feeling your best if this system is not healthy.
For those of us who feel tired and lethargic, movement is the antidote! When you power up your body by challenging it to move, bend and twist, you wring out toxins and bring in prana (life force energy). Think of movement as adding fuel to your fuel tank. Keep moving so that you will have more endurance to do the things you need to do and love to do. Envision what you can do with a day full of energy and endurance!
