“Since I hadn’t planned to age like everyone else, the pain and physical limitations of the past few years took me by surprise. I’d envisioned a slightly wrinkled, gray-haired version of my twelve-year-old self, hiking trails and riding horses. I wasn’t prepared physically or mentally to join the forty-six million Americans over sixty-five who comprise fifteen percent of the U.S. population.”
Excerpt from Slow Yoga/Slow Aging
by: Judy Blais
Slow Yoga/Slow Aging grew out of a seven-year period in which the last three years have been complicated by a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Not fun… but definitely a fast track for an up-close and personal education on aging.
Research is easy for me since I worked for years as a newspaper reporter. As I experienced all the challenges that accompany aging and arthritis, the yoga book I’d been working on slowly took on a life of its own and expanded to cover a much wider range of topics.
I dug into issues around diet, sleep, balance, memory, exercise, arthritis, flexibility and in the process, gradually became my own guinea pig as my body provided some much-needed feedback. Other topics ranging from preventing the bad fall to eliminating clutter took on a growing sense of urgency as I neared my mid-seventies.
The past year has been devoted to fact checking and at times, merciless editing to produce a book that is fun to read, informative and accurate. I also resurrected Yoga Pelli (a little cartoon character I used during my years of teaching yoga) to help readers understand and follow the three simple yoga routines in the book that take place in bed, on a chair and in a hot tub.
Published in June 2017, Slow Yoga/Slow Aging was designed as a user-friendly 8 ½ x 11 workbook that lies flat so the reader can follow the illustrations without the book slamming shut. The copy is set in a larger type to make it easy to read and there is ample free space for the reader to take notes.
