It’s never too late to start stretching exercises for health, strength, and mobility!
Do you find yourself getting stiffer and more tense with age? Do the active hobbies you used to love suddenly cause you pain or injury? Do you struggle with the range of motion for day-to-day activities like picking up your grandchildren?
Regular stretching keeps our limbs flexible, elongated, and healthy at any age. As we move from middle age into our senior years, it becomes even more important. In fact, a stretching routine will help build good posture, encourage muscle relaxation, and relieve many aches and pains. It can even improve your mental state through mindfulness and relaxation!
