My Father: Starting Yoga at 87

I would appreciate it very much if everyone would read my latest article for Elephant Journal and write comments over there:

My Father: Starting Yoga at 87

90 year-old Dad in Warrior 2 (He's on the left!)

I think you’ll really enjoy the article and I’m trying to help Elephant Journal expand its audience.

Many thanks.

  8. Great job getting your dad to start yoga. I’ve got a routine going with my mom (age 83): she complains about how stiff she is, I suggest yoga, she grumbles something about how she hates yoga (having gone to a class at some point a few years ago) because she can’t stand people telling her what to do with her body. A week or two ago, though, having explained how a private session with one of the yoga teachers I know would work (just sit down with her, she’ll ask what you can use help with, you tell her, she’ll suggest make some suggestions) I think I may have made some progress, but we’ll see…. Meanwhile, I’ll check out your Elephant Journal article…

  9. Thanks for writing, YogaforCynics. Good story.

  10. “Never too old, never too young, never too late, never too sick…!”

    rekindled the fire, offering the body into the kunda performing agnihotra through attending bikram classes, after years, overcome by amazement of the memory effect of the body and immersed into 90 day challenge with 57, and attended 7 month after uniterrupted practice, a teacher training seminar in India!

    Everything is possible, if one follows the path devoted to it, step, by step and through due course becomes the Bow, the arrow and the target!

    “agni jyoti, jyotiḥ sūryaḥ svāhā!”
