Happy International Yoga Day, CHS. Do you know all the countless health benefits that can come with adding a little bit of namaste into your life? 🧘

The balance experts (yep, that’s a real thing) over at Roper St. Francis Physical Therapy Powered by ATI let us know that while balance decreases with age and puts folks at risk for falling, trouble walking + difficulty with certain tasks, physical exercise can help combat this loss — and an activity like yoga will actually increase your sense of balance through strength and coordination training.

Charleston has dozens of studios offering a wide range of yoga classes, from gentle stretching sessions to cardio-infused classes that will make you sweat.

With yoga, everyone’s a poser – so don’t be intimidated to take a beginner-level class, even if you feel out of shape. But if you’re experiencing other symptoms in addition to a loss of balance — like dizziness, nausea or vertigo — you should consult a doctor first, as it may be a sign of an underlying vestibular disorder.

If that’s the case, physical therapy may be a better choice for you. With Roper St. Francis Physical Therapy Powered by ATI, physical therapists can help create a customized progression of therapy for you that targets the specific symptoms you’re facing — so you’ll be ready to hop on a yoga mat in no time.
