AGE was no barrier to Tess Wilson Taylor, who certainly didn't see retirement as a time to slow down or stop.

At the age of 87 she was still teaching yoga and was fitter than many of the people in her classes who were more than half her age.

This picture was taken in 1993 during one of her lessons at the Isle College, Wisbech. She also gave private lessons at her home in Bank Drive.

Mrs Wilson Taylor, who practised every day, said yoga was one of the few exercises where age was immaterial.

She said she saw herself as a model for her pupils and hoped she was an inspiration to those approaching old age.
