These poses are recommended by the Yoga Journal and are segmented by how much time you have to devote.  Cool!
Maintaining a feeling of youth, even as you age, requires a flexible spine. So in order to stay agile, forward bends, backbends, and twists should be a regular part of your practice. This sequence emphasizes moving safely into backbends and One-Legged Upward Bow Pose, an advanced pose that opens the heart and shoulders, and challenges balance. If you can practice without strain, you should feel rejuvenated and blissful.
