Y - Yoga

Toot Toot Train Carriage clip artI am not an athletic person. I am not a coordinated person. I don't have great balance. I've lost tons of flexibility as I've aged. My idea of being athletic when I was young, was riding a horse. As I got older, it was riding my motorcycle.

When I was at an RV rally, I took a beginner yoga class for three days in a row. I really enjoyed it but after the rally was over, so was the yoga.

A few years later we go a Wii Fit and I did a little more yoga. I enjoyed it and I know it helped.

Fast forward another five years and last month I started a local yoga class. The instructor is young and fit, the participants are mostly older and aged, like me. She is very good at dealing with our infirmities and helping us to slowly work out the kinks. I've been enjoying it quite a bit...two days a week and I walk 20 minutes each way.

The next step is to spend at least 30 minutes on the other three weekdays doing some yoga here at home. I have no more excuses since I bought a second yoga pad to keep in the bedroom!

Are you staying active, no matter your age? Please give it a try!

    Yoga frightens me! I'm very proud of you.

  2. Yoga helps. I've been skipping classes and need to get back at it.

  3. Started back with chair yoga. Gradually moved on and love the flexibility and calm to set my day. 30-45 minutes for me most satisfying part of my morning routine.

  4. This is real easy yoga, you can do it!
