60 years young and 3 students


I learned from a YouTube video with David Swenson, that P. Jois was 60 years old when he had 3 students. And he kept teaching and teaching not gazing at any result. A world movement developed.

For me this is encouraging. Too often we use age as an excuse not to do anything. It's too late, we think. There is a limit to everything and this is the death. Till then let us keep doing what we love to do.

You convey messages so simply, yet succinctly, dear U.. yes, the ONLY thing stopping us from anything is death. At age 60 I am embarking on new forms of exercise as a compliment to my yoga practice, something I would not have thought possible one year ago.. your post today is confirmation that I am on the right path for me. Gratitude for your wisdom♥

I'm glad that we have role models, dear Debb. Also Iyengar encourages me not to stop with crazy yoga poses. He proved it. It's possible. And it's fun.

Times have changed.
