Secret to Living 100 Years!


We came across this very interesting article on featuring Yvonne Patterson: A ballerina nearing her 100th birthday!  What's Yvonne's secret?  "Movement: That's the key."

As Yvonne demonstratee below some of her daily excersizes and pushup routines, we noted the rug on the floor:  What appears to be a first quarter 20th century Karaja from Persia

Karaja rugs often resemble Heriz Rugs in their geometric design and bold colors.  However, outside of their construction, the main distinguishing design elements are often are the multiple medallions with "hooked" outlines. Perhaps the secret to old age is not only "movement" as Yvonne mentioned, but also having a trustworthy rug as a training area!
