Mimi Holland-Moritz isn't your average yoga instructor. For one, she's 90 years old.

Mimi started practicing yoga when she was 65. A few years later, she started teaching it. Mimi teaches yoga at Northville Yoga Center, the Athletic Club in Novi and the Walled Lake Community Education Center. The grandmother can't imagine her life without yoga.

"It feels wonderful and everything opens up in a new way each time you do it so it's magic; it really is magic," says Mimi. 

"I think the most amazing thing is she prepares for every single class. For somebody of that age, I just think it's phenomenal," says Cecelia Ginger, who has been attending Mimi's class for 8 years. 

Mimi teaches yoga three times a week and when she isn't teaching, she's in class practicing.
