FIT FOLKS

JAN DAWES, 63

Austin American-Statesman - - HEALTHYLIVING -

Though past the 50-plus age re­quire­ment for the La­mar Se­nior Ac­tiv­ity Cen­ter, I thought I was too lively to hang out there. But I fig­ured the af­ford­able yoga class was worth a try. So, twice a week for three years, I’ve been stretch­ing body and soul un­der the spell of Jogi Bhagat. The breath­ing ex­er­cises helped me sur­vive surgery and a three-week hos­pi­tal stay. My phys­i­cal ther­a­pist, im­pressed with how quickly I re­gained flex­i­bil­ity and bal­ance, at­trib­uted my fit­ness to yoga. It also gives me the en­ergy to keep up with three young grand­sons. The main rea­son I keep go­ing is that it’s fun!
