    I completed a Yoga Teacher Training June 2005, at the Yoga Haus in Greenville, SC, a program designed by Timothy Burgin. I began the program for self development, I was 60 years of age at completion. I am teaching privately one student at a time recently. I began to have pain in my left hip in the last two months which is so painful I am very limited to a few asanas. I will soon be 74 and really want to continue practicing Yoga to stay strong, stave off diabetes and stay well. When practicing Yoga I never have had the flue or even a cold virus. I believe the practice keeps me well and alert. I study as many yoga sites as possible. I cannot afford Yoga Studio time but sometimes I find a studio that will allow me to watch. I learn new teaching techniques in this way. I love Yoga and believe it to be a very important health tool.
