Easy Agility Practice

Agility is essential for healthy aging—it allows us to move through time and space with coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility. If you are looking for a gentle introduction to developing agility, this is a great place to start! In this class, Dr. Baxter Bell uses a combination of dynamic movement and static, held postures to cultivate agility, improving our body’s ability to adapt to unexpected changes in our environment.

Challenging Agility Practice

Whether you’re moving through a crowded farmers’ market or navigating the toy-strewn floor of a young child, agility helps you safely and gracefully get in and out of situations. If you’ve mastered the Easy Agility Practice and are ready to take the next step, Dr. Baxter Bell will guide you through this Challenging Agility Practice video. This class cultivates nimbleness as you move through time and space, and develops balance in both static and dynamic movement positions. Build the coordination, reflexive sharpness, and mental concentration that lie at the root of agility.

Easy Balance Practice

As we get older our balance often will gradually worsen. This can lead to falls and fractures in our later years. However, if we work on balance regularly we can maintain and sometimes even improve our overall balance. The practice in this video has been designed by Dr. Baxter Bell to help you build balance so that you can continue to move through life with safety and ease.

Dr. Baxter Bell has designed this video for those who have done the Easy Balance Practice and are ready to move to the next level. This series of poses will ramp up your balance skill quickly through a combination of traditional yoga postures and controlled instability, a technique from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
