Aging and Exercise

I am curious about how much time others are committed to making time for exercise as you age. Do you find it less important, about the same, or more important?

 

As I get older, I have found it more of a necessity to spend more time being active and spending more time outside.

I think staying active is the key to it all.  What's the difference between pilates and yoga??

That's a good question @GeraldAndersonEDOL! Both are low-impact workouts that use bodyweight resistance with a heavy focus on breathwork. What I have found to be the main difference between the two practices is the spirituality that is inherent in yoga. Yoga has been around for thousands of years, and it's rooted in spiritual philosophy. Pilates, on the other hand, was created during WWI and was primarily used to rehabilitate wounded soldiers.

I have been seriously following AARP exercise programs for years, especially Bryant Johnson and Lorraine Ladish! They work for me (older and not quite fit) and are available daily FREE via AARP!

 

Hope others check it out; think you'll enjoy!

I'm with you Paula - in finding that exercise has become more important.
