Seniors face a number ofage-related issues, such as chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, and anxiety and depression.

Fabulous book with good illustrations and directions for poses and the reasons why to do them, a good self directive but would be best for someone also taking classes.
