You can improve your flexibility, mobility, and balance even while seated, and the following routines show you how.
You're in charge of whether or not you do a particular posture. If it doesn't feel right for you, don't do it. The National Institute of Aging provides a wealth of information to help guide you on what may be safe for you and what you should avoid.

Educate yourself, and enjoy the benefits of breath and movement.
