A recent Yoga Journal e-newsletter featured an arcticle titled “Forever Young,” about older adults doing yoga.
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.
