Join us at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers for a weekend with Baxter Bell, MD, co-author of the book “Yoga for Healthy Aging” and former 8 Limbs Teacher Training Director Melina Meza to share their insights on yoga and aging with our community (we are all getting a bit older each day!). The sessions this visit will be new and unique, for those who joined them in 2018.

As a yoga teacher, physician and acupuncturist, Baxter has accumulated a vast repertoire of wisdom and will share some of 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 will lead you through a series of practices designed so you can take home what you learn and implement it with ease. Melina, a senior yoga teacher and Ayurvedic educator and nutritionist, weaves in healthy living. Baxter’s expertise in yoga therapeutics complemented by Melina’s mastery of holistic nutrition and Ayurveda will leave you 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: some new ideas around building and maintaining strength
  • Inflammation: what it is, how it impacts aging, and how yoga helps
  • Immune Health and Yoga
  • Stress Management: the newest insights in changing “mindset” and stress
  • Ayurveda for healthy living in modern times

NOTE: This workshop is designed for relatively healthy, relatively physically able participants of any age. It will not include instructions for or information about yoga for older adults 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.

From Melina & Baxter: 

“We are excited to join you again as guests of 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in Seattle for this new, unique Livestreaming program. The topics we will cover are so timely and appropriate for this unprecedented moment in time: information and yoga practices to support good immune health, influence inflammation in the body, keep you strong while sequestered at home, reframe your mindset around stress, and teach you simple Ayurvedic practices to keep you healthier now and as we all age! If you joined us 2 years ago, these topics will present fresh, new information, and if it is your first time studying with us, you will find the sessions accessible and practical!”
