Yoga and Longevity: Optimum Health for Life

Weekend Workshop with Larry Payne & David Allen at Esalen Institute

Big Sur, CA

Esalen 2016

This workshop integrates the ageless wisdom of yoga with modern integrative medicine, with a special emphasis on women and men aged forty plus. In a balanced format of lecture and movement, the leaders will introduce the Prime of Life Yoga® lifestyle program. The yoga, taught by Larry Payne, offers a safe, gentle, breath-oriented approach based on the needs of the participants and inspired by the teachings of Indian yoga master T.K.V. Desikachar. David Allen will deliver lively lectures on longevity, the brain, and the heart.

In addition to the emphasis on breath and movement for general conditioning, we’ll focus on movement of the spine, with special consideration for lower and upper back problems and chronic knee and hip ailments. The workshop will also include effective stress-reduction practices, advanced breathing methods simplified for all levels, biomechanical re-education, healthy lifestyle tools, and guided meditation.
