Yoga Loosens Up Geezers

It took just one collective inhale from the group of middle-aged men for Katie Scanlon to realize she wasn’t going to be able to stick to her original plan. The yoga veteran was out of her element – and so were the men on the mats in front of her. They moaned and groaned with every movement. They lost their balance just moving one foot forward or backward. “They asked me to teach them yoga because they were feeling like they were getting stiff,” Scanlon said. “That might be an understatement.” Three years ago, the group of about eight men in their 50s and 60s approached Scanlon at her Yoga Shala studio on the South Hill and asked her to teach them yoga to help them work on their strength and flexibility. She agreed, on the condition that they would come once a week for a whole year/Jennifer Pignolet, SR. More here. (SR photo: Tyler Tjomsland)
