Yoga for 50+ years young (or for anyone looking for a mellow class).  Make some room for yoga in your life.  Now that you have all that extra time for yourself, try yoga! Yoga is regarded as one of the best exercises for maintaining a healthy body and mind and reducing the aging process.  It can easily be adapted for any person at any age and in any physical condition.  Yoga has become more popular in recent years due to the many benefits that can be had from regular yoga exercises.  One of the great things about yoga is the fact that it is very powerful at relieving stress.  For those people who are aware of how stress affects the condition of the skin and the aging process, it is easy to understand how powerful yoga can be to help wind back the clock.  By releasing stress from the body energy levels increase and allow you to participate in more activities.  This in turn increases your physical fitness and mental fitness.  With the ability to perform more physical activities the body becomes healthier stronger and effectively younger.  The suppleness that comes about from doing regular yoga exercises reduces the amount of aches and pains that we suffer as we get older.  Having constant pain, and the energy that this saps from your body, is very often mirrored on the face, making you appear older.
