Yoga in Midlife

A Holistic Approach To Aging Well

 

Yoga for Menopause in Macau

Yoga is not just a physical practice but a journey into the depths of the self

Even knowing that yoga can be beneficial to your overall well-being during midlife transition and beyond, you might have questioned if practicing yoga would be really suitable for you. A common misconception is that yoga is only for young, flexible, and thin people, and it is often considered a form of exercise. This is not true, yoga accepts you wherever you are in life and although it involves physical practice, it offers much more than a simple workout. Yoga practice is adaptable to your needs and not the inverse. Another wrong misconception is the belief that all goes downhill after 40 and 50, especially when it comes to health, movement, and starting something new. If you understand what you are going through at this stage of life and address it with the right lifestyle changes to how you eat, exercise, manage stress, and prioritize your sleep, you will certainly navigate this transition with ease and see amazing results.

I strongly believe you can be in the best shape of your life and become your best self possible, even as you get older. Why do I believe it? It is because I am living it and I have also helped people to achieve it. At age 55, I’ve never felt better. Staying active and moving our bodies is critical for healthy aging, it keeps us strong, flexible, and full of energy. As a yoga teacher, besides teaching, I’ve been using yoga to my own benefit for many years, and I confess that its holistic approach helped me a great deal, especially when I was going through the challenges of menopause. Yoga truly supported my journey not only on the physical level but also in improving my mental and emotional well-being. I don’t have the utmost solution, and the aim is not to reverse the aging process, but finally what we all are looking for is to find strategies to cope and restore our life quality.
