Many older adults fear falling or have suffered past falls. Falling is not a normal part of aging— yoga and mindfulness can help. I found this one-pager from the Vestibular Disorders Association, which mentions yoga for balance and falls prevention, to share with you. (Vestibular refers to the inner ear’s balance system!)
Aging Well with Yoga
