On the 5th January WEA yoga student Douglas Taylor celebrated his 90th birthday with a special yoga class followed by a party with family and friends organised by Nerissa Fields and daughter Teresa. Doug who only starting practicing yoga in his 80s puts younger members of the yoga classes to shame with his flexibility and positive attitude to life. Nerissa who teaches the classes said “He’s a great person to have in the class and is an inspiration to us all”, “He’s warm and kind as well as being great at yoga and welcoming to new students. “He’s living proof that you’re never too old to start learning.
