World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher, Bernice Bates, Stretches it Out (video)

in YD News, Yoga Heroes

“It gives you a good outlook. It involves your mind,” says Bernice Bates, 91 year old yogi, and recent recipient of World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher title, who starts her practice before she even gets out of bed in the morning. “Your mind, your body and your spirit. They all work together and they’re all coordinated. Whereas when you’re on a treadmill, that’s all you’re doing, and you’re tired when you’re done. We build energy in our body, we don’t take it out.”

Inspired by her story, her quotables and her expansive yoga career, we now have video! Go on, Bernie.
