Yoga for Healthy Aging (A Weekend Intensive) With Baxter Bell
Friday - Sunday, March 1-3
Samyama Yoga Center welcomes Baxter Bell, MD, co-author of the book Yoga for Healthy Aging, co-creator of the blog of the same name to share with our community his insights on yoga and the aging process. He will present the scientific background that explains how and why yoga works to foster healthy aging, so you’ll understand which techniques to use when. And he’ll teach you essential yoga poses, yoga sequences, and other practices that will set you in motion for a lifetime of practice.
NOTE: This workshop is designed for relatively healthy, relatively physically able participants. It will not include instructions for or information about yoga for seniors who cannot stand unaided and need to practice in chairs. It also will not include specific information about using yoga as therapy for medical conditions, although there will be a bit of general background on that subject.
