Health | “the harder the body, the older the person”! You need yoga to stretch

Houpu Yoga academy focuses on “Houpu Yoga academy” in blue.

In daily life, people often hear that the stiffer the body, the older the person.

Is it true? The answer is true.

This is because with age, the bones, joints, ligaments and muscle tissues of the human body will slowly age, lose moisture and elasticity and become stiff.

For example, the bones of the elderly are very fragile.

If you fall carelessly, it is easy to break.

Yoga stretching can not only effectively replenish water for bones and joints (such as Yin Yoga), but also build elasticity for muscles (such as flow yoga, Astanga, etc.), but also further stimulate and promote the recovery and improvement of other functions of the body (such as breathing, glands, internal organs, etc.).

Therefore, proper yoga practice and keeping the body’s bones, joints and muscles hydrated and elastic can achieve the goal of keeping people young.

Today, I want to share 8 simple yin yoga moves.

If you want to keep young, you can practice more than 3 times a week for better results.
