Age between 40 and 60 years. Concentrate more on pranayama (yoga breathing) to revitalise your body. Practice the asanas you feel comfortable and gradually attempt difficult asanas.

Age more than 60 years. For one month, do pranayama only as it will provide vitality, improve blood circulation and energises your heart. Practicing of alom vilom is ideal pranayama for this age group. Gradually you can increase the practice of alom-vilom to thirty minutes.
