A recent Yoga Journal e-newsletter featured an arcticle titled “Forever Young,” about older adults doing yoga.
Peggy Cappy, creator of the Yoga for the Rest of Us DVDs, was quoted throughout the article. If you don’t know her work, please buy or rent the DVDs.
Peggy has been teaching a Gentle Stretch class in Peterborough, NH for over 20 years. Many of her students are in their 70s, 80s, and 90s.
I had the privilege of observing the class during a teacher training course with Peggy this summer. Her older students are amazing – active, joyful. If they hadn’t told me their ages, I would have guessed much younger ages.
When prospective students ask if I think they are too old or too inflexible to begin yoga, I always tell them about Peggys’ students.
