The 1,000 year old yoga class!


This spring, a group of yoga fans gathered for a special over-55s class, held at Northolt Leisure Centre in London as part of Yakult’s 80th anniversary celebrations. As befitted the occasion, the two eldest participants in the class were 80 years young – with the group as a whole boasting a collective age of over 1,000! The class was led by Iyengar yoga teacher Liz Elder, herself aged 66, and incorporated chair yoga as well as more challenging positions, such as warrior pose.
