secret to a long life

I am so happy to have come across this video by Julia Warr (it was posted on simply lovely). It is indeed simply lovely.

"Shot in Fire Island, New York, this film captures the secrets of eternal youth as Maia Helles, a Russian ballet dancer turns 95 but still remains resolutely independent, healthy and as fit as a forty year old. Made by Julia Warr, artist and film maker met Maia on a plane 4 years ago and became utterly convinced by the benefits of her daily exercise routine, which Maia perfected, together with her Mother, over 60 years ago, long before exercise classes were ever invented."

Look for the wholefood moment when Maia is serving lunch, "some yellow and some greens" :) made me smile. Hope it makes you smile too.

  1. I posted the same video on my blog too.. and made almost everyone at home watch it! I love seeing old women like this.. who age so beautifully and gracefully. I just hope I'm half as fit as her when I'm half her age!


Thanks for your comments. I read every one!
