My yoga class today was just what the doctor ordered. With my sore muscles and the stress in my life right now, after this class, I feel so much better. Anyone who has not tried yoga, needs to. I treat my classes like a doctor appt and go 4-5... Read more

I haven't posted for a time. Work and life in general has kept me off line except for logging food and exercise daily. I had neck injury from minor car crash in January which hijacked my yoga and lifting for time. Instead I added more cardio ... Read more

For those of you discouraged with the scale....here's a question. How many total pounds can you lose in a year if you lose 1-2 pounds a month? Sometimes, you don't realize what you're doing, because the changes are so subtle in the beginning. ... Read more

Last fall I was talking to a friend, Marybeth, who may I add, teaches yoga, that I'd like to try yoga but was afraid of injuries.  You see, I had purchased a gentle yoga DVD for over 50 a couple years before and tried it the first time and hurt ... Read more
