Just found this board. Any personal experiences?

Anybody know any older yogis who have not shrunk? Or is it to do with your bones not your muscles?

My grandmother was a a yoga teacher for over 40 years. She practiced and taught daily. By the time she died she was definitely shorter, however she suffered from osteoporosis.
