She has the loveliest accent and voice. I imagine that would be quite perfect in a yoga classroom.

Heh. Reminds me of my 89-this-week grandma. Still teaches the senior water aerobics class at the public pool three days a week, and swims laps the other two weekdays. When grandpa died in 2009, it was obvious she was falling apart for the two or three weeks that she had too much administration to do, to go to the pool. Back in the pool and *bam* back as sharp as ever.

Nice.

On a side note, what is up with the videographer in the video? Why did he need to be in the frame all the time?

Yeah, it seemed like an experiment gone awry at times, but mostly a cheap way to use the mirrors and not have to have a reporter with separate cameraperson (which I *think* is how it's usually done, isn't it?)
