[Infographic] 4 Yoga Poses for Joint Health
Yoga is a great way to maintain joint flexibility & function. Here are 4 simple yoga poses for joint health & mobility…
Yoga has many therapeutic benefits, but one unique benefit of yoga is that it is fairly gentle on the joints, while still helping you to maintain joint health and function by moving all of your joints through their full range of motion during just about any yoga sequence. It is especially important to maintain joint mobility as we age, and yoga is a great way to do that without high-impact moves that may damage or strain joints.
Besides nourishing and lubricating your joints though movement, yoga also helps strengthen the muscles that support your joints, creating strength and flexibility at the same time, and reducing joint instability and the related risk of injuries.
