Lifelong Yoga


Also Available As an Ebook

Yoga offers vital tools for healthy aging: strength, flexibility, balance, and peace of mind. In this one-of-a-kind book, Sage Rountree and Alexandra DeSiato describe the poses and routines that can help keep people of any age fit and injury free. In addition to demonstrating simple ways to maintain and even increase our ability to be active into our 50s, 60s, and beyond, the authors—both yoga teachers with decades of experience—offer poses and routines aimed toward specific goals, such as improving balance, maintaining strength and flexibility, and recovering properly between workouts. Each fully illustrated sequence is introduced with a brief overview of its benefits, along with modifications and options suited to individual requirements. Rountree and DeSiato also offer sequences that help support specific activities such as running, swimming, or golf, as well as yard work, travel, and caring for grandchildren. An essential and easy-to-follow guide, Lifelong Yoga offers key practices for maintaining and improving physical and mental well-being throughout a lifetime.

“Sage Rountree and Alexandra DeSiato offer a friendly introduction to yoga. You will improve your flexibility and your balance. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques. . . . Practice Lifelong Yoga and feel better, whether you’re playing golf or playing with the grandkids.”

—from the foreword by Roy Williams, University of North Carolina men’s basketball coach


“Rountree and DeSiato deliver a pragmatic, straightforward, and useful take on using yoga to alleviate the effects of aging. . . . This is a practical guide for people who want to begin a yoga practice outside the classroom or supplement one they’ve already begun.”
—Publishers Weekly

“In this wise, compassionate, and skillfully written book, Sage Rountree and Alexandra DeSiato draw upon their decades-long experience as athletes and yoginis to offer guidance into how your practice will and should change as you age. With poetic insights from yogic philosophy, Lifelong Yoga is much more just than a posture book—it’s a blueprint for healthy aging.”
—Carol Krucoff, C-IAYT, E-RYT, yoga therapist, Duke Integrative Medicine, and co-author of Relax into Yoga for Seniors

“Sage and Alexandra have made an important contribution to the yoga literature with their splendid Lifelong Yoga. All of us are getting older, whether we realize it yet or not, and we need to keep moving to stay healthy and fit. Stretching, sweating, creating space in the joints and spine, and generally working on wellness is essential for the aging body, especially former athletes. A strong, active asana practice, with mindful awareness of alignment and breath, is a powerful ally for enhancing longevity and maintaining balance, agility, suppleness, strength and vital health.”
—Beryl Bender Birch, author of Power Yoga and Boomer Yoga, director/founder The Hard & The Soft Yoga Institute and The Give Back Yoga Foundation
