A Skier-cum-Model, the Oldest Yogi, 10 Action Ladies, & Jody Foster on Water The most luscious links from the web this week include a piece on ESPN on Sierra Quitiquit, the former Freeskiing World Tour competitor that recently signed a modeling contract. A piece in today’s New York Daily News reveals the world’s oldest yogi as Tao Porchon-Lych, a 93-year-old woman that teaches weekly classes in Hartsdale, NY. And, a new Jody Foster-narrated video from water.org was launched on Mother’s Day.
The Bees Knees: Our favorite links from the web this week include a Reuters report on a new study that found women are twice as likely to injure the knee of the non-dominant leg while skiing. Food for thought for when you’re gearing up for next ski season. Ruedl recommends strength and balance training on the non-dominant leg to reduce differences between the legs and ward off injuries.
