“Baxter Bell and Nina Zolotow share a wealth of information on using yoga safely to age with greater flexibility, strength, balance, and grace, both physically and psychologically. This user-friendly book will be a boon to yoga practitioners (and would-be practitioners), as well as those who teach them.”—Timothy McCall MD, author of Yoga As Medicine
"We might imagine from the title that this is a book only for the seniors among us. But in fact, the practices and supporting material will benefit both young and old alike. It will help the former establish a solid foundation for their future well-being and teach the latter how to maintain that well-being long into their ‘golden’ years." —Richard Rosen, author of Yoga FAQ
“All the yoga in the world will not stop us from getting older, but it can help us approach the journey with more grace, agility, and assuredness. Baxter Bell and Nina Zolotow show us how in Yoga for Healthy Aging. Conversational style and gentle humor make their comprehensive medical knowledge and yoga teaching wisdom easily accessible to everyone—from beginning students to advanced teachers. And I love that they've given us concrete ways of celebrating who we are—instead of dreading what we fear we'll become—with each passing decade. A true gift for all ages.”—Linda Sparrowe, author of The Woman’s Book of Yoga & Health and Yoga at Home
"Between the two of them are more than 35 years of expertise, and an inestimable welling up of caring for us people as we age. The combination of experience, medical knowledge, and imaginative empathy make this book as warm and interesting as it is useful. “—Loren Fishman, MD, founder of Sciatica.org

Very informative book to become acquainted with all the benefits of yoga, or to enrich and enhance your yoga practice. Sequences are easy to follow, with no crazy pretzel poses to intimidate you. We all want to keep, or improve, our mobility, balance and feel vital as we age. I recommend this book to keep the juices flowing mentally and physically. The authors present the information in a very down to earth and easy to understand manner.
I recommend this book and would purchase it again.
