Yoga instructor Bette Calman still going strong at 83
YOGA instructor Bette Calman may be 83, but she is still bending over backwards to spread the benefits of the ancient Indian system.
With 40 years of teaching under her belt, the Williamstown wonder is living proof that a lifetime’s dedication to the healthy pursuit can keep you nimble.
While others her age complain about aches and pains, Mrs Calman focuses on getting tough manoeuvres right.
“I’m proof that if you keep at it, you’ll get there. I can do more now than I could 50 years ago,” Mrs Calman said.

“You’re never too old. The body is a remarkable instrument. It can stretch and stretch, and get better all the time. Forget age.
