At 90 years old, she is stronger – physically and spiritually – than most people I know, and is a constant inspiration for my own life and many others. She often talks about allowing the yoga practice to come from the inside which is where your true power lies. She is indeed a PWR Broker – a light that shines so bright that you feel her warmth the moment you step into her presence.
