Videos to Support Strength and Resilience as our Bodies Change over Time.
Welcome! We want you to know that whether you are turning fifty (or forty, or eighty!) or even if you just want to practice in a stronger, more resilient way, you are not alone. We are here with you. Desiree and Michelle have written a book, Fearless After Fifty: How to Thrive with Grace, Grit and Yoga, to support you on this journey in mind, body and spirit.
Desiree, Michelle’s longtime teacher, teaches yoga with strength and perseverance, creating long, resilient muscles and flexibility in the body. This method is beneficial for everyone, but it is particularly good as we age and lose muscle mass. We also make our core and spinal alignment a priority. After all, who can be happy if they have a pain in the back? Focusing on creating strength, length and the spine will mean it’s not game over at midlife; it’s game on.
You can enjoy these videos on their own, or you can watch them as a supplement to the book. Each video corresponds to a Fearless After Fifty chapter and is meant to explain the yoga. The videos are instructional in nature and average about 30 minutes, with the exception of “Let’s Practice,” where we put it all together. It is our hope that you learn to trust your body, that you discover techniques to quiet your mind, and that ultimately you find your resilient and vibrant spirit with yoga.
One last note: in many of our videos we have the following props: a blanket, a yoga block and a yoga strap or belt. These are not “mandatory,” but we find them quite helpful as we often need support to maintain proper posture. If you are getting older, or just getting started, these props might be a good investment for your practice.

I have had two orthopedic surgeries over the past few years, one for a spine fracture and one as a knee replacement. I grew up dancing, doing gymnastics, and teaching low impact aerobics as well as hiking, biking, rowing and paddling. It has been very difficult to find exercise that will support me building my strength in all parts of my body. This service helped me to "wake-up" muscles and areas that have caused me great pain during my recovery. Thank you so much for your work.
