91 Year-Old-Yogi Vera Paley Teaches Yoga to Alzheimer's Patients

91 year-old Vera Paley of Florida has been doing yoga for 50 years and has been teaching yoga since 1982. Her specialty is 'chair yoga' which she teaches to seniors suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia.

Vera says yoga keeps her healthy and tells the Sun Sentinel:

"I think I'm where I am because of what I do. Yoga is not just moving. It's breathing and daily meditation."

Namaste to that!

We've previously written about 83 year-old Bette Calman and 92 year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch who both teach yoga regularly (and then there's my 91 year-old grandma who practices daily but doesn't teach). Suffice to say, we love this octogenarian and nonagenarian yoga trend!

You can watch Vera teach her class here.
