—Barrie Risman, author of Evolving Your Yoga
I’ve been studying yoga with Ellen Saltonstall since 2001 and credit what I’ve learned from her for being in good shape now at almost eighty. When I’ve taken a class with someone else over these twenty-two years, Ellen’s teachings about anatomy and alignment have helped me stay safe and get the maximum benefit from each pose.
—Joan Rothchild Hardin, PhD, clinical psychologist in private practice
Ellen Saltonstall’s statement at the beginning of Empowered Aging about yoga being “adaptable to different needs” is exactly how she teaches yoga for aging clients in this concise and informative book. I have studied with Ellen and in her book she pays just as much attention to detail and physical safety as she does in her studio. The poses she describes in the book have helped me move my osteoporosis numbers! I highly recommend it.

Yoga has tremendous potential for helping us to maintain strength and balance as we age, both physically and emotionally. In Empowered Aging, longtime teacher Ellen Saltonstall makes these benefits accessible to people of all ages and ability levels, enabling you to begin with the yoga poses that are right for you, to modify your current practices as you experience age-related changes, and to progress at your own pace. This is truly empowering!
—Nina Zolotow, coauthor of Yoga for Healthy Aging and author of Yoga for Times of Change

Ellen Saltonstall came to us after hearing about Emerald Lake Books from someone else and seeing some of the other books we’ve published. This was not her first book, so she had a good idea of what to expect and what to look for in deciding on her choice of publisher. So we were honored when she chose to work with us on Empowered Aging.
While the project ended up a bit larger in its scope than originally planned, we’re very pleased with the finished product. The time spent getting the poses in the photos just right and ensuring the instructions and photos supported one another was monumental. But Ellen’s love for her subject matter and dedication to her students shines through on every page.
May you enjoy Empowered Aging in good health!
