The nonagenarian yoga teachers have been getting a lot of attention lately (although there’s some debate about just exactly who holds the “World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher” title), and rightfully so. But let’s not forget that the future of yoga depends on the young ones.
Actress and comedian Amy Poehler hosts an awesome web series called Smart Girls at the Party (best name ever), a show that celebrates girls who are changing the world by being themselves. Among the amazing girl rockbands, editors, dancers and feminists featured on the show is Anna, a 9-year-old inventor, philosopher, humanitarian, gravity-defying chocolate lover, and yogini.
Serious and thoughtful Anna tells Poehler how yoga keeps her balanced and relaxed, and then she goes through a few yoga moves. The episode ends, like every episode, with a dance party. This might just be my most favourite thing in the world right now.
