The elderly will undergo a gradual decline in physical and mental capacities, one of which is a decrease in lumbar joints flexibility. It can be prevented by exercising. One of the suitable exercise that can be done is yoga. Purpose: To analyze the flexibility of lumbar joints in the elderly before and after yoga exercises. Method: this study is a pre-experimental study with one group pretest-posttest design approach. The sampling techniques used in this research was non-probability sampling method i.e., purposive sampling with a sample of 35 people. Elderly flexibility was measured  using the sit and reach test scale. Result: The flexibility of lumbar joints in thirty-five elderly as subjects before yoga on the first day and after the yoga on the last daywas measured using a meter band, and the result showed 27 older people with increased flexibility, six older people with decreased, and two people who have no change. The Results obtained a significant difference between before and after the yoga exercise program (P = 0.00).
