Preparing for Your Third Act: Yogic and Ayurvedic Tips for Healthy Aging

Ayurveda

What will the Third Act of your life look like? And how much power do you have to influence how well you age and how healthy you will be in the last one third of your life?

Trail-blazing actress Jane Fonda has set an example for how the last part of our lives indeed can be a Third Act: A life lived to the fullest, and a time of personal and spiritual growth distinctly different from our younger lives.

The key? Start preparing early to retain health and vitality well into your older years.

Whether you are approaching your Third Act (60 plus years) or already in it, both yoga and Ayurveda have wonderful tools and practices to support your desire to continue to grow as a whole person in this potentially rich phase of life.

Valued through the millennia as for their techniques for prevention, recovery and self-care, yoga and Ayurveda may well be one of the penultimate lifestyle tools to retain and even enhance health and well-being as we get older.

Making small, yet positive, changes in health behaviors can significantly improve mortality, rates studies show. Changing multiple health behaviors results in even further reductions in morbidity and improvements in overall health and wellness.

With Baxter Bell’s long-time focus on yoga as a healthy living and aging system, and Melina Meza’s dual expertise in yoga and Ayurveda, this program will set you on your path for better health and well-being as you reach for those Third Act goals!

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.
