Namaskar Ashmin,

Kindly invite this lady to practice her techniques on a yoga mat. This may instill the desire for others who are able to get to the floor and back up without problems. Each student is in a dramatically different stage of life after 55. Some students will be more physically able than others. Some students are much healthier and happier than others. There is also much difference between a student who is 59 and another who is 69. But there are exceptions in the instance of students who have taken care of their health and those who have not.

Luck is also part of health. If a person has an automobile accident, there are many problems that can follow. If a person has a family history of a specific type cancer or disease that is going to be a factor too. If a person has no problems, that person is indeed lucky.

Dear Ashmin,


I am curious about this senior who was stirring the pot. How is she doing now? Please update us as to her antics.

Aum Shanti,

Dear Priyah,


This student still comes to my class. Since three years ago, she has injured herself six times by pushing herself too hard outside my class. She comes back when she gets injured in a class with younger students. She will never let go of her competitive nature no matter how many times she hurts herself. Luckily, she has never hurt herself in my classes, but she complains that I play it safe. In a strange way, I think she likes me.
