The New Yoga for Healthy Aging Reviews

“The New Yoga for Healthy Aging is one of the most exciting yoga books ever published. Its promise is one that millions of baby boomers will find comforting–that yoga is a natural prescription for reversing the aging process. The proof is in the lovely and inspiring photographs of yoga students in their later years in poses of beauty and strength. This outstanding resource addresses the common ailments of aging and is as encouraging as it is informative and practical. Suza Francina shows how even challenging yoga poses become “do-able” through the use of props and modifications. Her extensive knowledge and experience teaching yoga is evident and her wisdom and deep caring shine through her words and stories.”

“As a brand new yoga teacher (at age 62), I find Suza Francina’s latest book, “The New Yoga for Healthy Aging”, to be a great resource. I teach in the 55+ community where I live, so many of my students have health challenges. I often refer to the chapters on teaching seniors, as well as those dealing with specific health issues, like hip replacement (I have two in class), arthritis and osteoporosis. I also like to share quotes from Suza and the other senior teachers featured in her book with my students. I highly recommend this book for new teachers and older students as well.”

“Suza Francina is an extraordinary yoga teacher, deeply knowledgeable of the field and so skilled in passing on the joy of yoga. Her new book leads students safely and comfortably through a wide variety of poses. She knows the idiosyncrasies of the older population–I am seventy, myself–and describes appropriate props and pose variations to be used when needed. We are privileged to have Suza Francina’s expert guidance available in this book!”

“Great! Reminds of how to look after ourselves as we age. The New Yoga for Healthy Aging is well organized and clearly written.”
