Revised and updated: the New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller from the star of PBS's Classical Stretch . This groundbreaking guide to reversing the effects of aging through gentle, scientifically designed exercises has been updated with a new chapter about the emerging research on the importance of healthy connective tissue--which reinforces the wisdom and science behind Miranda's pioneeing approach to exercise. Our paperback release is timed to a new PBS pledge-break special, Aging Backwards 2: The New Connection , which will begin airing in April 2018, joining the hugely popular specials, Aging Backwards and Forever Painless.

It's never too late to slow down, or even reverse, the effects of aging. Our bodies are designed to function for the full length of our lives--and with gentle, full-body flexibility and strengthening exercises, we can look and feel tremendous, vibrant and active at any age, and well into our senior years.
But as we grow older, we often assume that we should take it easy--exactly the wrong idea. It causes us to neglect the single most important system in the body, the one that makes all of the others work: our muscles and connective tissue. The old adage of "use it or lose it" is true, but Miranda Esmonde-White's fitness and anti-aging breakthrough has come from understanding that how you use it is all-important. You need to strengthen and stretch all 650 muscles along with the fascia and other connective tissue in the body in a balanced way that enhances overall strength, posture, cardiovascular health and mobility; eliminates joint pain; and burns calories. In this revised and updated edition of Aging Backwards, Esmonde-White shares her remarkable conclusions about how to keep your body young and shows you exactly how to stretch and strengthen.
