I've taken up Yoga again and I'm enjoying it. I quit yoga class about four years ago because with the contant influx of newbies we were rarely getting into any of the more challenging stuff, plus I already had a gym membership and the climbing wall doesn't come cheap, and all the expenses added up.

But I had to realize recently that yoga isn't a luxury for me but a necessity - I've been getting stiff as hell. Any longer and I'd get real back problems. When I went to a trial class, I couldn't do movements that were no problem four years ago. Yikes. After two times, I feel like there's already a tiny improvement, back's started to loosen up a bit and after the second class my lower back didn't hurt like it did after the first one. (Forget about actually challenging stuff... I'll be happy sticking to the basics...)

Yeah, I've found that yoga makes a real difference in flexibility for me too. What's your favorite pose?

Good question. I used to have a fave one that I always suggested when we the teacher asked for our wishes. But I totally forgot which one that was... been so long. Right now it's the combination of everything that works wonders for me.

I would love to get back into yoga. right now my orthopedic surgeon forbids it. Enjoy yours

Thanks. :) It feels better than a massage right now, and the effect lasts longer.

and has some nice health benefits.
