Ayurveda for Healthy Aging – Tackling Common Age-related Issues


Aging is a side effect of unhealthy living. A long, joyful life is a side-benefit of healthy living. This is the vision of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of natural healing, says Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar, one of the most academically accomplished Ayurvedic physicians and Ayurvedic clinicians in the U.S.

In this course, Dr. Kshirsagar will describe Ayurvedic techniques for reversal of aging that include adopting a program of dinacharya, daily lifestyle habits targeted to your unique constitution. These in turn can greatly influence our health and well-being in the short run and encourage a process of healthy aging, rather than one characterized by chronic disease and loss of freedom and mobility.

Dr. Kshirsagar will connect the dots between Ayurvedic techniques and modern-day science to explore how lifestyle habits – healthy eating can help build bones, fight off fatal diseases, boost brain power—can help us live longer and with more vitality.

Healthy aging isn’t just about the long term, it is about learning to enjoy life more, stay balanced, and keep our vitality and zest for life, no matter what our age. By learning to keep our body, and our brain, young and healthy, we can live to 90 and longer, still being an active contributor to society around us with a strong mission and purpose in life, says Dr. Kshirsagar.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
