Baby Boomers Boomin'

Looking to my elders for guidance and inspiration:

B.K.S Iyengar  93 yrs old.
"If you have a knife that you do not use, what happens to it?  It gets rust, does it not?  If you want to go on using it, you have to sharpen it regularly.With regular sharpening, you can keep it sharp forever. "
-Iyengar "Old Age" The Tree of Yoga


Tao Porchon-Lynch Age 93

Tao has been teaching for 45 years and practicing for 70.  "I am still a yoga beginner. I am still learning," she says.


Betty Calman, 83 yrs old

 'Yoga keeps you young... Never have I gone to a yoga class and wished I was somewhere else, because I know I'm going to come out feeling on the top of the world. There'll always be yoga.'
