Yoga for Healthy Aging

with Baxter Bell MD, E-RYT500 & Melina Meza, BS Nutrition, E-RYT500, Ayurvedic Health Educator

January 12 – 14, 2018

Join us at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers for a weekend with Baxter Bell, MD, co-creator of the blog “Yoga for Healthy Aging” and Director of 8 Limbs Teacher Trainings, Melina Meza, to share with our community their insights on yoga and aging (we are all getting a bit older each day!).

As a yoga teacher, physician and acupuncturist, Baxter has accumulated a vast repertoire of wisdom and will present the scientific background that explains how and why yoga works to foster healthy aging in a way that is fun, accessible and doable for the long run. He leads you through a series of guided practices designed so you can take home what you learn and implement it with ease. Melina, a senior yoga teacher, Ayurvedic educator and nutritionist, weaves in healthy living. With Baxter’s expertise in yoga therapeutics complemented and spiced by Melina’s mastery of holistic nutrition and Ayurveda, you’ll leave knowing what it takes to create a practice for healthy aging.

This workshop will provide instructions on maintaining your physical, mental, and emotional health as you age. The main focus of the course is on preventative strategies, covering:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Stress Management
  • Circulatory System/Heart Health (time permitting)
  • Brain Health (time permitting)

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.
