Have Yoga’s Deep Roots Been Forgotten? A Shining Light In Cape Town Proves Otherwise!

Recently, I was lucky to be living in Muizenberg in Cape Town, South Africa, a very beautiful part of the world to live in with beautiful mountain views and the vast Atlantic stretched out before your eyes in every direction you look.

Nearby, along the coast line at Kalk Bay, I stumbled upon a community centre and unique yoga class being led by an 80 something year old teacher.

I’d already tried a few other yoga classes which were very good in terms of physical asanas but they just weren’t what I was looking for in my personal evolution.

When I first walked into Glen Ross-Hudson’s yoga classes, I was struck by her immediate Presence and ‘no nonsense’ yet fun approach to her students through the discipline of yoga — and a unique, energy-based routine called “yoga chi”.

She was small in stature, but her energy was BIG!

As the weeks and months progressed I really got to really understand what a hidden gem her classes were (and are!) – supporting a diverse and growing family of yogis of all ages, particularly many of those in their later years. Many students were already in their 60s and above, with some younger ones in their 30s and 40s.

Glen had taught people of all ages, and seen it all during 40 years of teaching – in particular, the changes that come when aging. She constantly reminded us, as an 80 something year old, that if you didn’t keep up a regular breathwork and movement practice, your body would eventually and rapidly decline (joints, brain fog, etc) because of your lack of care and attention.

As she always reminded us with a wink, “old age isn’t for sissies.”
