Is Yoga and Meditation a Healthy Life Style?If you ask Bernice Bates, 91 yrs old, she would defintely say yoga and meditation is part of her healthy life style. Granted other considerations must be taken into account, but one cannot dismiss the relevance of yoga and meditation in her life.
Bates has taught Yoga for over 50 yrs, starting in 1960. She currently teaches a once weekly yoga class to the residents of the Mainlands Retirement Community Center in Pinellas Park, Florida. She offers her students a class that includes over 12 poses and ends with a relaxation. In her personal time, she practices yoga every morning to begin the day.
