You know me better than that


Friend: Join this "Power Yoga" class with me!
Laurie: I'm not joining anything that has the word "power" in it.

I'm with you, Laurie.

I was once asked to pose in a yoga class picture - we were at the place for Julia's class, the newspaper guy showed up and hardly any of the adult class members were there for a PR picture to promote the new class, so they needed a space filler. I refused to even pretend I was in the class. No one would buy it. I may be wearing the yoga pants, but it has nothing to do with actual yoga. It only has to do with those being the only things that can handle my love handles.

I like watching Namaste Yoga on the fitness channel. Well, not really watching it, but listening to this Canadian woman talk soothingly over the excercises for thirty minutes really does it for me. I have all my stress relieved, and I don't even have to get out of the easy chair. Nice.

All the years of sports, and natural progression, have caused me to start experiencing some chronic pain in my knees, shoulders, and wrists after heavy duty excercise. It is nothing 3-4 Aleve can't handle, usually; but a friend of my wife's said I should try Kundalini(sp?) yoga, it would be good for my joints. Yeah, I'm thinking. Actually, a few joints would be good for my joints, just as well.

Inca - That's the beauty of my sedentary youth. My sisters and brother who were all athletic in their teen years are falling apart. I, on the other hand, who mostly laid about, feel great.

It's either good joints or good "joints." Somebody should research that.
