"Make Your Mat a Haven" --Judith Lasater, Age 64

The yoga mat is a haven for Judith Hanson Lasater, a yoga teacher and physical therapist who has written eight books about yoga and holds a doctorate in East-West psychology. "There is so much demanded of women today. You're not just a homemaker, you're also a brain surgeon and you're running the PTA," she says. "So the mat and the meditation cushion are a deep place of refuge for me. It's about being present with no one's needs on the table but my own. The yoga mat -- it's the original spa."

The biggest benefit of aging for Lasater is simple: She's happier every year. "I like being the age I am. It's very liberating," she says. "I make choices for enjoyment instead of necessity, and life is not just a list of things to do, but a series of moments to enjoy."
