Looking to make your health a focus in 2018 but unsure where to start? Get your body back into the rhythm of exercising with these low-impact methods!
Yoga and Pilates
Did you know there are many benefits to doing Pilates and yoga when you are over 60 years old? Not only do both of these exercise types help your body stretch properly, but they also help your bones get stronger and assist you in achieving better balance.
Here are a few YouTube videos and channels that offer great, helpful guides to get you started!
- Gentle Yoga for Seniors: Yoga Practice
- Chair Yoga – Yoga for Seniors | Yoga with Adriene
- Beginner Senior Pilates with Sunshine

Swimming and Water Aerobics
Many seniors are unaware that swimming and water aerobics are some of the best ways for your body to build and tone muscle, without the high stress and impact that normal exercising can produce.
So why not try swimming some laps, or grabbing a few friends and neighbors and creating your own water aerobics class with water weights, noodles, and paddle boards.
When it comes to exercising as you age, many older adults find the stress they get on their knees, hips, and ankles too hard to bare. Thankfully, there are many exercises you can do while sitting in a chair to make that stress disappear!
Here are a few that you can try out, via Vive Health:
- Shoulder circles
- Toe taps
- Knee lifts
- Stomach twists
- Seated tap dancing
The best part about all of these is that you can do them in the convenience of your own room or home!
