96-Year-Old Yogi: 'Yoga Exercises Every Single Muscle of the Body'

Just when I thought we knew all the 90-something yogis, another nonagenarian yogi has emerged! Enter 96-year-old yoga instructor, Adela Choquet. She's been practicing for over forty years!

Adela teaches three classes a week in Florida and tells the Village Daily Sun that yoga affects the body "completely." She says:

“I always tell them the same. Yoga exercises every single muscle of the body.”

Adela began her practice after a friend brought her to a yoga class in Miami. Shortly after, she decided to become a yoga instructor.

In addition to yoga's health benefits, Adela currently looks to her practice as a solace:

“Nothing is rushed. Everything is calm I have a husband who has Alzheimer’s. I come here and I find my friends. I really love my class. I am going to go until 100.”

Namaste to that!
