Whether or not you consider yourself aging (although technically we all are) beyond your actual age, you’re probably looking forward in your life and hoping for health, wellness, and longevity. What matters more than our age is always how we feel. So, if you are on a journey to feel your best for as long as possible, this episode is for you.
I’m sitting down with Baxter Bell, a family doctor, medical acupuncturist, author, yoga teacher, and a licensed yoga therapist. He has deep insights into experiential anatomy, yoga technique, and yoga mythology, and he’s here to share how to use yoga can as a life-changing tool when it comes to healthy aging.
If you currently believe that healthy aging isn’t something you need to consider right now, think again. Baxter Bell is here to discuss the science behind why yoga is an amazing tool for healthy aging, and how you can start introducing yoga into your routine, no matter how old you are.
