91-year-old sets Guinness record

If you’ve ever wondered about the benefits of yoga you need to look no further than astoundingly fit 91-year-young Bernice Bates. Bernie – as her students call her - has taught yoga for 50 years and continues to do so even today in her retirement community making her the Guinness World Records certified Oldest Yoga Instructor in the world. Amazingly, Bernie is nearly as flexible as she was in her 40’s and has absolutely no medical issues.

Her record was announced on Guinness World Records Day, which resulted in over 300,000 people participating in record breaking events around the world!
