Self Care: 72 Year Old Shares Secrets To Staying Young

72 yogiBy: Isabella Carson

Janice Lennard is a yoga and Pilates master. She teaches classes as often as she can and also has a collection of instructional DVDs out for sale. One thing that makes Lennard a little bit different than all of the other yoga masters out there is the fact that she has been doing this for 65 years. Janice Lennard is 72 and still going strong. She practices what she loves and she shares that passion with others. This is what keeps her going and what keeps her looking so young and healthy. She has a lengthy dance, yoga, and Pilates history and told Essence that she wants other people to feel the joy of these different exercises.

When teaching a class Lennard has people of all ages joining her. She tells them to make sure that they are not pushing themselves too hard. She feels that too often people try to do what everyone else does because they feel they need to keep up or need to meet certain expectations. Lennard just wants everyone in her class to have fun and get the most out of the class. She stresses the importance of holding out on doing something that you know you cannot so that you don’t hurt yourself.
