Try Yoga for Wellbeing
Yoga is an excellent way to keep your flexibility. Yoga stresses doing what you as an individual finds comfortable, and gradually improving your performance. Your back is particularly important to wellbeing and flexibility. Read more for two yoga poses that anyone can do anywhere.
1. Stand with your feet slightly apart, hands at your sides. Raise your arms above your head and clasp your hands together. Bend backwards as far as you can, arching your back, hold for a count of ten (and up to thirty eventually). Slowly return to your standing position, then bend forwards as far as you can and clasp your hands around your legs (knees, calves, ankles - wherever is comfortable) and gently pull your head towards your legs. Hold for a count of fifteen (and up to forty five eventually). Repeat slowly three times.
2. Lie on your front on a towel or mat, with your arms at your side. Relax and count to ten. Slowly raise your head and shoulders off the mat as far as you can, then bring your hands together, palms down, under your shoulders. Use your arms to push your head and shoulders as far off the mat as you can, arching your back. Hold for a count of fifteen (and up to forty five eventually). Return to your original resting position. Repeat slowly three times.
As the positions become easier, you can hold the extreme positions for longer. Gradually you will find that you can reach more extreme positions and hold those positions for a count of thirty or forty five.
