Biohacking Your Aging Profile: Yoga as Lifestyle Medicine

Can we biohack our aging trajectory to minimize the risk of chronic disease and pain as we get older and even overcome genetic predispositions to certain diseases? 

Indeed, there are many ways we can increase the odds of enjoying good health throughout our life, notes Dr. Ginger Garner, DPT, integrative physical therapist, board-certified Lifestyle Medicine diplomate, and yoga therapist. 

It’s an important topic. Almost 70% of Americans aged 55-64 have some kind of chronic disease, according to the CDC. Yet, an estimated 80% of chronic diseases, like premature heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by eliminating commonly known risk factors, according to the World Health Organization. 

Where do you stack up? Learn how to evaluate common biomarkers that indicate risk of chronic disease and premature aging.

In this online course, Ginger will go into depth on 5 biomarkers of aging that can determine whether you are biologically older - or younger - than your chronological age.

Learn how these biomarkers can help predict our functional capacity later in life better than your chronological age. Ginger will also show how to use yoga as an approach to lifestyle medicine to reduce pertinent risk factors and biohack your aging profile.

There are five facets of Lifestyle Medicine that overlap with the ancient yogic model and modern biopsychosocial model, and Ginger will discuss each of them in terms of the most common issues that plague adults over age 40. 

Learn what you can do to overcome genetics and maximize your quality of life, while minimizing your risk of premature aging and the chronic disease and pain that accompanies it. 

Join Ginger as she guides you through the landscape defining your age profile, and learn how yoga as lifestyle medicine can be effortlessly woven into your language as a yoga teacher or student.
