    Yoga as a 57 year old



    I'm Diane, I will be 57 next month, and I am new to AthletaWell.   I started to doing yoga (on youtube) during the pandemic and I have grown to really LOVE it!  I regret not discovering it earlier in my life, but I suppose it's better late than never 😉   My question is about strength.  I practice yoga 4 hours a week and generally rotate between the same 10 online classes (each approx 1 hr in length) with my favorite online instructor.  Although my flexibility has dramatically improved since 2020, it seems that I should be stronger at this point, but I feel sometimes that I am actually weaker.  I  find it challenging to hold certain basic poses (specifically warrior 2 on my left side, as well as standing pigeon pose on my left side).  I have been told that I have bone loss of my left hip and maybe that is contributing to this issue?  I am wondering if anyone has experienced something similar?  Or maybe has some advice for me? 

    Thank you!
