It’s never too late to get into yoga. Just ask 85-year-old Anna Pesce.
After decades of suffering from severe scoliosis and a hunchback, the New York resident has completely transformed her body and her life—and all within a two-month period.
Anna Pesce was wheelchair-bound by the time she was introduced to back care specialist and yoga therapist, Rachel Jesien.
“[At that point] I’d tried everything: acupuncture, a physical therapist and seeing a chiropractor,” she told the New York Post. “You feel good temporarily, but [I’d be] in pain again soon after.”
Now Jesien visits Pesce in her home once a week, and the two move through restorative poses and stretches together. After only one month, Pesce was able to walk again.
By her fourth month, the 85-year-old could do a modified headstand, with her back leaning against the wall.
Talk about inspiring!
