At 89, Bayport woman stays youthful through yoga

Jean Lap of Bayport is nearly 90, but she?s more flexible than most people half her age.

She?s been teaching yoga at St. Anne?s Episcopal Church in Sayville for more than 30 years and says she?s in perfect health. Just one vitamin a day is all the grandmother of 10 takes before hitting the mat and reaching beyond her toes.

Lap is decades older than most of her yoga students, but that doesn?t stop her from showing them how to stretch and relieve stress.

She says she?ll continue to teach as long as she can move.
