Age Without Limits
Janet Rae Humphrey
Janet walked into a yoga class at the age of 58 after a lifetime of medical issues, including a lumbar fusion, six knee surgeries, fibromyalgia and three neurosurgeries, followed by life-threatening infections, severe pain, muscular weakness and scoliosis. Through her yoga practice, Janet grew stronger and more flexible, and her health improved dramatically.
About The Book
Age Without Limits is direct evidence that aging does not have to mean decline. In fact, this book provides direct hope and inspiration that you can always improve your body, your mind and especially your attitude. And best of all, it is gifted to us by Janet Rae Humphrey who has lived this truth in her own life by healing her own body through her yoga practice.
The same irrepressible spirit that has made Janet an incredible teacher and an inspiration to so many, has made Age Without Limits an extraordinary gift to the world of yoga. It is a valuable resource for students and teachers alike and one that is easily accessible to all. In addition to excellent guidelines on how to approach your yoga practice safely, this book gives ample information about how to observe special precautions for specific medical conditions. Janet draws upon 20 years of working in medical research and patient care plus peer-reviewed medical and scientific studies to support her work and quotes them directly in this book.
The most inspiring aspects of Age Without Limits are the photographs and testimonials from those who have benefited directly from Janet's passion and excellence as a teacher. Joy and vitality shine in every student between 63 and 95-years old.
Age Without Limits contains over 200 alignment-based chair and standing yoga poses designed to improve posture, strength, flexibility, balance, stamina, range of motion and well-being.
