Weekly Briefing: Yoga benefits. High-flying at 95. A star plays on

 March 18, 2023

Yes, these three stories are worth a look. 

1.

Yoga And It's Benefits Explored Some More.

“Since yoga is an integrative practice that impacts multiple areas of health, it may be effective for preventing a syndrome like frailty, which has multiple causes. Yoga’s benefit to physical health has never been assessed against validated definitions of frailty."

Here is a link to the easy-to-read conclusions about the research.

Claudia Simpson, who took part in our feature How Do You Geezer Jock, is a Yoga instructor from Bethlehem, Pa. Check out her You Tube channel.

Does Yoga work for Geezer Jocks? I watched Claudia claim a silver medal in W65-69 meters (9.91 seconds) at the USATF Indoor Masters Championships last week. It is still a highly-competitive division in the sprints and Claudia, 69, is at the 'older' space of her age cohort. So, yeah, it works.

Still Flying at 95.

“I eat the wrong things and I don’t exercise,” Marge said. It doesn't sound like a person we should emulate here. Marge Wardenski, 95, is leaning on her genes to keep her going.

And then we find out she hits the zipline, hang glides, goes up in a hot air balloon...and sky dives. She jumped out of a plane 12 days ago. She's leaning on something else, it seems. Spirit.

Her husband had the fitting last name, Wardenski. He played the part of a warden telling Marge she couldn't do such daredevil things.

Read her answer to that.

An NHL star plays on. 

He won an NHL MVP way back in 1998-99...and he is still playing professional hockey. This is how Jaromir Jagr explains why he still plays at 51. "If you stop, you are going to get fat and unhealthy and get surgeries on back, knees and hips. I would crash down. I see it on everybody else. I’m not doing that. I want to have a happy life, so I’m going to work hard until I die, because it’s the only way.” 

Here is the latest on the second-leading scorer all-time in the NHL, a Geezer Jock to root for.
