BETHANY - Where can those 50 and over go to truly relax, improve flexibility and gain strength all at the same time? Try an hour of yoga once or twice a week with well-known area instructor Nelle Reichbart.
Yoga calms the mind and slows the pace of daily life while gently stretching the body, Reichbart said. It increases joint mobility, flexibility and muscle tone and stimulates diaphragmatic breathing, while enhancing a state of calmness and wellbeing, she said. Soft, somewhat exotic music subtly enhances the experience.
