Baxter Bell, MD, has been actively deepening his understanding of the power of yoga since making the stress-reducing move from a career as a busy family doctor to that of a yoga teacher and medical acupuncturist.

Baxter is a co-author with Nina Zolotow of the new book Yoga for Healthy Aging. 

Baxter’s teaching has been influenced by the many gifted teachers he has studied with over the years, including Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, Erich Schiffmann, Richard Rosen, Mary Paffard, TKV Desikachar and Donald Moyer.

Baxter is a featured presenter and has therapeutic yoga classes on the website Yoga U Online as well as in Yoga Journal’s DVD, Yoga For Stress, and has written articles for yoga publications such as Yoga Journal and the International Journal of Yoga Therapy. Baxter is involved in the integration of therapeutic applications of yoga with Western medicine and presently serves on the board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
