“Yoga becomes your own. I’m going to do yoga forever. There is no logical reason to stop. Yoga is for your life.”
Rosalia Holt was teaching the longest-running yoga class in the Chicago area. She started the class in 1967 at Trinty United Church of Christ. Ms. Holt passed away last Sunday night. She was 86.
Here is an article about Rosalia Holt and other Chicago area yoga instructors over 65. How inspiring!
And here is a beautiful video that was made in response to a request for older extraordinary yoga teachers when Dr. Oz was starting his own TV show.
“Rosalia was such a special person--always smiling, laughing, very positive, saying kind things to strangers, and giving positive words of encouragement wherever she went. She was a true yogi, and a very kind one.”
