I Might Need to Start Yoga

I have to admit. I’ve always kind of made fun of Yoga. I wasn’t against other people doing it. I’m all about freedom of choice and if you want to do Yoga, go for it. I think Colin Cowherd, a radio personality on ESPN Radio, summed it up best: “Only in America could we turn stretching into an entire industry.

Now that I’ve offended all those that really love Yoga, I think there might be something to Yoga. The older I get, the more aches and pains I have in my body. As most of you know, I’m still very active, but that just adds to the aches and pains. I still love to lay out for a disc when I’m playing ultimate frisbee. I love to lay out to dig a volleyball. The older I get, the harder it is to recover from the abuse I’m putting on my body.

No wonder stretching Yoga is so popular. Seriously though. The older I get, the more I think that Yoga could be a really great thing for me. I don’t need to do anything crazy. I just think my body would really love doing Yoga.

Now I just have to bring myself to find a studio or somewhere that I can learn to do it. We just signed up for a new health insurance plan that provides us access to the health and wellness services that Turntable Health offers. I just checked their schedule and it looks like they offer a Gentle Yoga class with Chidimma Ozor (Seriously, our health insurance is covering Yoga). Can you imagine a better name for a yoga instructor?

Looks like I’ll be finding a Yoga mat and giving it a try. We’ll see what Chidimma can do for me. You can be sure I’ll report back on the experience.

I’m a huge fan of yoga. It’s not for everyone, but aside from the strength and flexibility it provides, the meditation and breathing aspect is good for mental health. So you’ll be less senile doing yoga. We do it at the treatment center I work at all the time to promote mindfulness and the boys don’t usually have a good attitude, but they feel better after doing it. I hope you have a positive experience.

Hi Laurel,
Me less senile sounds pretty good. I’ve thought the same thing. I think the mormon version of Yoga is “Search Ponder and Pray.” Sounds like a gospel principle no?
