Seven Steps to Healthy Aging

For everyone.

Do you want to experience more vitality, strength, and balance as you age? Yoga—and its associated lifestyle practices—is an ancient science that offers many health benefits, especially as we mature. Join Kripalu faculty members Vandita Kate Marchesiello and Ken Nelson in a nurturing retreat designed to balance your body and mind, increase strength and flexibility, promote sound sleep, and heighten your overall mindfulness and awareness throughout the day.

With more than 75 years of shared experience “walking the talk”, Vandita and Ken skillfully guide you through mind-body practices based in the Eastern wisdom traditions of meditation, yoga, and qigong to enhance wellness and vitality in your wisdom years.
