92 year-old Yoga master



위 동영상 내용

Shut your eyes, and travel up the ladder of life. Up each of the chakras, breathing in the breath of life. Breathe out peace. Well I teach yoga, I've been teaching yoga for 42 years. And um, uh.. still teaching. After decades of dedication, Ms. Porchon Lynch is considered a yoga master by many of her peers and followers, for her take is a bit different. I'm a yoga beginner, I'm still learning. Even as a child, Ms. Porchon Lynch had a mind of her own and knew her path, careful not to let others deter her from following it. I have been involved with yoga when I was a child in India. And I started doing yoga in India, oh, and I just saw some boys doing it and my aunt said it's not lady-like for girls to do it. I said well if boys can do it, I can do it, and I'm going to do it. Not only can she do it, but at 92, she's still doing it and inspiring folks that they can too. Yoga is the dance of life within us. I think we, when we learn that the energy that's everywhere, you know, if you sort of take a, a small piece of land, and millions of plates of grass there and flowers.., tiny ones, big ones, tiny insects, big insects, uh, everything, they're all pulsating with the same heart beat as our own. And when we can feel this within us, then we can do yoga. And to me, that was very important. I want to know what what's in this world without pain. And if I can, uh, really, uh, teach yoga, and do a good job, I can see an expression on peoples' faces, "Oh, I didn't know I could do that", you know, and I find it's so helpful, I can help other people as well as helping myself. And helping inspire others is what she does, believing she gets as much from her students as she gives. I have noticed much from my students as I have from the masters. Every, I like when my students ask me questions because I c.. I consider them jewels. I, I think they help me in teaching better. And what, I don't walk in and try and tell everybody to do the same thing. Our bodies are not all alike. So you can't tell everybody to get into a posture in exactly the same way. Seemingly a source of boundless energy, a humble and wise master, her practice has proven you can energize your whole body, regardless of age. Since Cindy believed we could recycle our body, that we could start to work on it and we can get energy moving throughout... The most important I think is to keep going, and to, uh.., the more energy you put into something, and uh I.. I.. I'm not talking about noisy energy, not screaming. I don't like noise, but to, to tune into something and know that I can do it, inside of me is the creation of life. And If I can awaken that inside of me, then there's nothing I cannot do.


나의 생각

미국생활을 하면서 놀라운 일중에 하나가 바로 이렇게 나이드신분들이 어떻게 요가를 가르칠 수 있는가입니다. 제가 다니는 짐에도 한분 계신데 나이를 여쭈어 보지는 못했습니다. 정말 100살은 되는것 같은데 젊은 사람들과 섞여서 운동을 하는 것을 날마다 봅니다. 저 나이가 되면 나도 저렇게 될 수 있을까?
무엇이 저들을 저렇게 강하게 만들었을까?
말 그대로 그냥 오래 사는 것이 아니라 건강한 몸과 정신을 유지하면서 오래 살고 싶은 것은 우리 모두의 바램일 것입니다.
전 70대 초반이신 저의 어머니 아버지가 나이가 많이 드신 분으로만 여겨져서 저희 어머니 아버지를 나이가 아주 많이 드셨다고 말한 적이 있습니다. 그 말을 듣던 그 미국인은 아주 젊어 보였기 때문입니다. 그런데 그분이 10여세 더 드신 것을 나중에 알게 되었고 그냥 거기서 놀라지 않을 수 없었습니다. 저랑 이야기를 하면서 보면 정신이 저보다 훨씬 좋거든요.
호흡입니다.
호흡은 사람의 몸과 정신을 다 같이 젊게 만들어 주는 원동력입니다.
