Did you know that Yoga (at about 5,000 years) is the world’s oldest health maintenance system? And it’s the best protocol for anti-aging–and maintaining independence.
Yoga is not for weight loss or body beautiful; it’s for total well-being. Unlike most exercise programs, Yoga works on the whole person: body, mind and spirit. And all this without equipment or the necessity of leaving the comfort of your home on a daily basis!

Why Yoga? Its benefits include improving
- walking, getting up and down
- digestion and elimination
- blood circulation
- physical energy
- mental clarity and peace.
We get these benefits, not by constantly moving, but by slowly getting into a stretch, holding the position briefly while focusing on breathing (or counting) and then slowly releasing the stretch. This method of “exercise” not only promotes strength and flexibility, but each posture becomes a sort of mini-meditation which results in a delightful feeling of relaxation and well-being.
D’Anne credits her good health to Yoga. She started practicing in her twenties and in 1982, she began years of Yoga Teachers’ Training with Yogi Krishan Sidhu outside of Toronto, Canada. She has since taught Yoga for Health Maintenance (as well as Yoga Philosophy and Meditation) in various venues and to all age groups for over 20 years.
