In early June, students at Breathe Yoga Studio in the Junction had the privilege and pleasure of taking a class taught by 95-year-old Ida Herbert. Ida, who hails from Orillia, no longer teaches yoga regularly but continues to practise daily and occasionally teaches at her local community centre in Bayshore Village. Ida discovered yoga at the age of 50 and promptly fell in love with it. The full house at Breathe enjoyed her energy and sense of humour as she led the class while sharing tips on healthy living. When Ida isn't practising yoga, she can be found swimming, cycling, walking and volunteering at her community garden. An inspiration to her students, friends and family, Ida embodies the old adage, If you don't use it, you lose it.
