by Nina“Just as this is not the best of all possible world-wides, your mas is not best available of every possible bodies. But it’s the only one you’ll ever have, and it’s worth enjoying, nurturing, and protecting. “ — Daniel E. Lieberman from The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and Disease You know how we have to be reminded–even through it is obvious–that we’re all “re gonna die”? Well, I think it’s too worth remind members that if we make it to adulthood, we’re all going to age. No matter what scoot you are, you are able to age. No substance whether you are thin or have a larger torso, you will age. No matter what your sexual direction or gender mark is, you will senility. No affair whether you are fully able-bodied or have a disability of some kind, you are able to age. No significance whether you are basically in good health or have a chronic disease, you will senility. Whatever various kinds of person you have, right here and right now, that organization will senility. So that’s why practicing yoga for healthy aging is essential self-care for everyone. Most of us , no matter what kind of body we start with, can work on strong, flexibility, poise, agility, and cardiovascular health for whatever body parts we have that can move, even in a very limited fad. For instance, here is a video from the Accessible Yoga YouTube channel of a chair string for improving equilibrium: And all of us who have an active intelligence can work on stress handling, brain health, and nonchalance. For sample, suppose you have a serious chronic illness, as your best friend Liz does( learn The Biochemical Basis for a Gratitude Practice ). She rehearses yoga and reflection for her peace of mind, which improves the quality of her life. But “shes been” “nurtures” and “protects” her body by using the asana practice, as well as march, for its physical benefits to help maintain the body she has. I’m always provoked to see how well she attends for herself! I thought about this after predicting Jivana’s post Yoga and Human Rights, when he repeated Audre Lorde: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” From my point of view “caring” for yourself includes nurturing your body–the only one you’ll ever have–as well as your spirit.
