Here’s how to live ’til age 130, if you were wondering.
Kazim Gürbüz is a 95-year-old yogi from Turkey, who says everyone can live to 130. You’ve just got to apply your mind.
Kazim credits his long term health and youthful appearance to keeping nice and bendy through daily yoga, sun salutations, and a special superfood-rich diet.

The yoga expert started living his super healthy lifestyle after he broke his back at age 41. He was left paralysed from the waist down, and told he would not walk again.
But Kazim claims that he managed to cure himself by allowing his friends to crack his bones back into place, and experimenting on himself with yoga and careful stretches.
‘I conducted 63 different experiments on myself,’ Kazim told the Daily Hurriyet. ‘I was born again. Nine months after the experiment, I began to walk.’
But rather than seeing it as a one-off miracle, Kazim believes that his recovery comes down to dedication and mental effort.
