Mom in 60s, job and caregiver stress. She studied yoga and taiji quan about 5 years ago. Can they help her now? She was a bit bored by them before.

In brief: Stress and yoga

Yoga and other forms of medative exercises can help one deal with stress.
It is worth a try perhaps now that she has a new focus - the stressors in her life they won't be so boring.

If she is completely overwhelmed now, studying anything may feel like too much. She may need help getting involved in these things, or attendance to her overwhelm from the caregiving.

In brief: Yoga for stress

Yes it may help if she takes it seriously including breathing exercises, can add relaxation exercises with that.
