When we are older

I taught a small class in a Residential Care Home for 2 years where the age of participants ranged from 75 to 93. Some of these elderly people had done yoga when they were younger and were very pleased to learn that even though they had believed that yoga was no longer accessible to them indeed there were still practices they could do and which they found beneficial. Those who had never tried yoga before surprised themselves with this new experience.

Some participants in my classes are also of a proud age and this is what some of them had to say:
