Swami Yogananda Maharaj Ji is a truly amazing man. He was born on 14th September 1908 in India. Swami Ji started the path of yoga at the age of 17 and attributes his good health to his continued practice of “Sukshumavyayam” Yoga.
It is an ancient regime that combines subtle yogic warm-up with gentle stretching, breathing, relaxation and simple exercises.
Even at the staggering age of 104 years old, Swamiji’s faculties are still functioning at optimum level; he has been able to maintain a high level of mental clarity.
He has very good eye sight without the need of glasses and healthy teeth. He is an amazing example of the true benefits of doing regular yoga and meditation. In his entire life, he has never taken medication and actually eats only once a day!
We can all learn a thing or two from his example of leading a healthy, very long lasting life.
