Active Instructors in their 50s

So... a big "light bulb" moment for me this past week came with 2 threads recently made. One about Cathe and the other about Kelly. I think I've struggled with my collection of WOs because the vast majority are by instructors that are not actively producing workouts or streaming anymore. I know that might sound silly, but knowing these ladies are still doing all this is so inspiring to me.

So, what instuctors are still active that are roughly in their 50's and up?

Cathe
Kelly Coffey-Meyer
Tracie Long
Miranda Esmonde-White

Who else?

I am not sure if you are referring to instructors who are still producing DVDs or just actively teaching.

Kari Anderson is still actively teaching at her gym in Seattle, although she has not released a DVD in years. She must be in her 50s, just based on the age of her adult daughter who was in one of her DVDs.

I think Karen Voight is still teaching, because I remember someone posting a link to her Zoom classes in the past year.

Ellen Barret is very close to, if not already 50.

Kathy Smith is still active, as are Gin Miller and Christy Taylor.

Paul Eugene (on YouTube and Amazon Prime) is 65 and regularly uploads workouts.

I'm not up on all the yoga instructors. I bet there are some older, like Jane Adams, that keep making workouts.

It's nice to see so many familiar instructors on this thread. I guess because I don't use much streaming, I'm not aware of how many are still instructing.

I knew that Kari A. and Karen V. have studios and still teach, but I sure wish they'd give making workouts for the masses one more shot. Something from Gin Miller would be epic.

Not 50, but I believe Jessica Smith is 41.

I checked on Gilad (66?) and don't see any new workouts in the future. He has recently started selling nutritional supplements.

Tony Horton (62) has something called an "October Paragon Experience" coming up in October:

"This three-day VIP food and fitness experience with Tony at his home, along with a few of other inspiring experts in the field of health and wellness, will educate and motivate you through a series of rigorous physical activities, lively presentations, discussions, seminars and amazing nutritious food."


I remember that Tony was trying to get funding for a new workout series last year.
