Wow! Another centenarian reaping beautiful benefits from a regular yoga practice :)

Charlotte explains, ""It strengthens your body...I'm in pretty good health for the age I'm at. Very few 102s are as active as I am."

The number of studies expounding the benefits of yoga for many age-related conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis and chronic back pain, to name just a few, is growing and growing. We shall continue to post new findings here as they emerge.

Namaste and enjoy the Spring weekend everyone.
