What if your lack of mobility isn't due to your age, but simply the number of years you haven't been moving well? Dynamic Aging presents a new paradigm in senior fitness: your age isn't responsible for your lack of mobility; your habits are! In this powerful and effective guide to moving better, geared specifically for those 50-plus, biomechanist and movement teacher Katy Bowman details how readers can regain their balance, maintain their ability to drive, keep their feet healthy and functional, and regain mobility and reduce pain throughout their bodies. Bowman's exercises are straightforward, require no special equipment, and include modifications for readers of all fitness levels. To combat the idea of being 'too old' to make great improvements, Dynamic Aging is filled with stories and advice from four septuagenarians who have been following Bowman's program for a decade, avoiding surgeries, eliminating pain, and regaining freedom and ease in their bodies they thought they had lost permanently to "old age." From hiking mountains to climbing ladders and walking on cobblestones with ease, each of these women embodies the book's message: No matter where you're starting, if you change how you move, you can change how you feel.
Dynamic Aging offers a journey, exploration using yourself as a research subject to embrace strategies that will lead to a richer, fuller life in the years after retirement. The realization that ten thousand people retire every day is staggering. People who are above one hundred are the fastest growing segment of society. The implications for health care, recreation, housing, Social Security and Medicare are mind-boggling. Futurists are trying to project possible solutions to the demands these changes will bring. Those who are living these dramatic changes can resolve to be involved in the dialogue and offer experience-based wisdom to move us to the next point of discussion: individually; as a social group; and, as a society. At every transition point in life we have the recurrent dilemma of figuring out our role all over again. We have learned to recreate ourselves at each developmental stage of life: i.e. childhood, teenager, young adult, parent, career, retirement, and beyond. Can you remember the challenges of going from childhood to pre-teen, then teen years, adulthood, career, possibly marriage and parenting? As we recall these times, we realize how much we have learned along the way that can be applied to the next development stage which Leif Erickson calls "generativity versus stagnation." If, indeed, as social scientists predict, we are going to be living much longer lives, it behooves us to model a new way of being that will change the present paradigm on aging. The generation of the Baby Boomers has the challenge and the opportunity to create new input that will impact present and future attitudes toward aging. In the final analysis this book is about empowerment. Empowerment is defined by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), as a "long term process affected by and resulting in changes in norms, values, rules, institutions and social relations." As this generation of new retirees determines to look squarely into the face of the present paradigm, see its flaws, its limiting belief systems, its prejudices, we can begin to ask the questions, challenge the assumptions, and demonstrate a new way of living. Dynamic Aging is a beginning. The psycho-spiritual practices that are offered in the book can be a grand experiment in soul work for those approaching these most rewarding and challenging years
Getting old might seem to be predetermined, but what if you could change your default outcome and actually increase your longevity with simple tasks. Small changes to your habits. What if you could still run marathons at 70, look 10 years younger or FEEL 20 like you did in your 40's? In the exploration of these 13 topics- Energy, Brain, Movement, Self-Discipline, Food, Pain, Immune System, Sleep, Alignment, Motivation, Skin, Stress, and Toxins I share secrets I have learned in my lifetime as a Dynamic Aging Sexigenarian, :) And no it has nothing to do with sex, ( did you have to look it up?) it means a person who has lived at least 60 years. What do I mean by Dynamically? It means vigorously active, energetic or powerfully. If you did look up the definitions you would be using an action in the BRAIN ELEMENT - Learn something new! It is amazing how tiny changes in the things we do every day impact our longevity and vitality. I have been coaching my family and friends for decades and now have chosen to share my SECRETS with you. YOU are far more powerful in your ability to control your circumstances than you will ever know. You control your future, it's in your CHOICES...
