A 57-year-old Man And His 1,000-Day Hot Yoga Streak
1000 Days and Still Counting
Yes, that’s One. Thousand. Consecutive. Days…and still counting. It’s not just the fact that he’s nearly 60 and still kicking ass at yoga (we have the 93-year-old yogi from NY, after all), but that he managed to do for a thousand straight days what some of us wouldn’t even be able to do for a thousand seconds! And most notably, he accomplished this while suffering from an arthritic condition.
Havi Asch, Mr. Macfoy’s instructor at Bikram Yoga Park Slope, said that Solitair “comes in with a certain level of pain — but it’s mind over matter with him.” Asch also shared that Macfoy’s energy in every class and his unwavering dedication have inspired other students and even their meditation masters.
In an interview with Brooklyn Paper, Macfoy said that doing yoga makes him feel good and has made him value life every day. He furthermore stated, “I’ve seen unspeakable levels of expansion in my psychology, my physical being, and spiritual side.”
