Bette Calman has been practicing and teaching yoga for the last 40 years and, although other people her age can hardly move anymore, she can pull off difficult yoga moves that put teenagers to shame. She can execute the “peacock,” a difficult position in which the body is held horizontally, using only the power of the arms, the “bridge,” “lotus,” and can stand on her head with unnatural ease.

Asked when she is going to retire, Calman said, ‘You’re never too old. The body is a remarkable instrument. ‘It can stretch and stretch, and get better all the time. Forget age.’

Ms. Bette Calman teaches up to 11 classes every week in Williamstown, Australia; teaching others the remarkable effects of yoga.
