Inspired by Ella Russell

Last week, I read a story in the Waterloo Record about an amazing 70-year old woman.

Over 40 years ago, Ella Russell moved from Scotland to New Glasgow in Nova Scotia. The yoga and swimming teacher started her fitness career by teaching a few classes at the local recreation center. Along the way, she acquired additional training in belly dancing, Dancercise, Nordic walking and resistance training. She also ran two marathons.

At age 70, Ella teaches 14 yoga classes a week. She is an inspiration to everyone and can keep up with the grandchildren of her original students.
