Meet John, BYL’s 70 year old Bikram Yoga inspiration7 April 2018
But to paraphrase 90’s singer Aaliyah, age is indeed just a number. John’s simple commitment to set a goal and ‘just do it’ have given him the ability to power through a 90 minute Bikram yoga sweat session with enjoyment, dedication and the ability of yogis of any age. As one may imagine, he didn’t start there, but simply worked his way up with dedication. Now, he is fit, strong and capable of any activity he wants to enjoy, as one should be at 70.
JOHN: “I feel HEALTHIER and FITTER than before. I have more ENERGY than I used to and feel like I am capable of ANY physical task.”
This awesome achievement reminds us that you’re never too old and it’s NEVER TOO LATE to begin your own journey towards a healthier, fitter life. When John first started 4 years ago, as with the average person he was unable to balance on one leg or even bend down to pick up his foot.
Today, he continues to excel in all the postures and practices in the front row as an inspiration to others 4 times a week. Come and see for yourself, bright and early at 6:30 am during weekdays.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
At a pre-op meeting, my physician checked my eyes and to his puzzlement the glaucoma had virtually disappeared. I cannot say with certainty that it was my 6 months of practising at your studio, but it is the only real thing I changed in my life. There was no dietary change, or medication, only the practise of Bikram yoga.
