that is a great list...I have done yoga over my lifetime...sometimes I slack off, but always come back to it...I try to carry my purse on the oppiste side sometimes to balance things out.
old age is not for sissies!!! and I swim...20 minutes in the pool is equal to 40 minutes exercise on dry land...and easier on the joints! muscle and balance so important for us older folk......elders who swim regularly have better balance!
