‘Keep on keeping on. This is my motto for every day. If I cannot do something I just try again the next day and I do not waste my energy in being critical of myself.’
Yoga instructor Bette Calman is 87, but she’s still bending over backwards to spread the benefits of the ancient Indian discipline. The nimble great grandmother can really pull some shapes and with her set hair and pearl earrings she looks as glamorous as Greta Garbo in a white jumpsuit. With over 40 years of teaching under her belt, the Australian wonder is living proof that a lifetime’s dedication to yoga will keep you flexible as a rubber band.
Bette began her career in her late 30’s, when most sportspersons are retiring. Is there an unwritten rule of when people should begin and end their careers?
