Yoga For Strength

It's been a little over a month since I decided to return to a personal fitness program. I write about it, I teach others, but as the years started creeping in, I stopped practicing. Yeah, yeah, yeah, serious horse accident ... bad back, all of the above.

Yoga ... one baby step at a time. At first, I denied that it could be as effective as aerobics or some of the other more grueling programs that I've been on. Well, at first, I was a sow bug. Seriously. I had no balance, no flexibility, a sore back, and more.

I'm getting stronger every day! Not sure how the instructor got so far off the personal fitness track. I guess I should have taken my own advice sooner. Slow is better than nothing. And one other thing ... my back was hurting because I was treating my waist as a joint. Bend at the hip when you do your forward bends. "The waist is not a joint." That's my instruction for today.

No more sow bug yoga for me! Bring it on!

What IS next?

 It seems like the Covid 19 Vaccinations are going faster than expected, but states are opening up equally as fast. I want to get out again!...
