Yoga for Healthy Aging 2.0


April 16-18, 2021

Please join Melina Meza and Baxter Bell and special guest presenter Erin Collins for this new 15-hour immersion where we will dive deeper into the many aspects of aging well. Some of the topics to be covered:

  • Beyond Basic Strength and an Update on the Four Physical Skills
  • Sleep and Nutrition for Healthy Aging – An Ayurvedic Approach
  • Stress and Moving Beyond Fight, Flight or Freeze
  • Immune Boosting with Yoga
  • Living Well: Embracing Mortality and Planning for It
  • Aging Well: Having Grace and Holding Space for Life’s Transitions
  • Dying Well: Meditation on Impermanence
  • And more!!!

As with the original Yoga for Healthy Aging 30-hour immersion, there will be a balanced mixture of presentations, yoga-based practices, experiential opportunities, and time for questions. It is recommended that you have either done our 30-hour program, or at the very least have read the book Yoga for Healthy Aging as a launching pad for our time together.
