soon 63 years old with a daughter of almost 20 years, same goal as you be healthy, fit and happy to set a good example, which definitely must be set by actions not words.
The other day Deepak Chopra in the Meditation Challenge (see thread) was talking how Yoga/Meditation is not a set of exercises but a way of living. I think that to be truth ,at least in my experience it has help me to be here now, being mindful enjoying life and all that comes every day.

welcome, it is great to meet you. I want to get healthier for my family, both mentally and physically. I have been in decent shape all my life but when I hit 40 things went crazy I got divorced and I am now with a wonderful man and I want us to be together a long time. My daughter is 16 and needs to know who to be healthy and not be in mid life trying to figure it out. Lead by example so i want to be there.

Salutations to all! I am excited to see that there are so many yoga lovers on this website. For me yoga is not only a workout but it is a way of being. Healthy, happy and centered... a very important goal for my life. I am the momma of 3 beautiful children. I have a 15 yr old daughter, 14 yr old son and a soon to be 9 month old daughter. I am 33 and have decided that it is time to start changing many of the unhealthy habits my family has. My children are my greatest achievements and I want to be there for them for many years to come. With the addition of my youngest, Isabella, I realized that I have not been actively keeping my goals for the healthy adjusted home she deserves to be raised in. With that I shall say that I am definitely working towards it for all of my kiddies and hopefully becoming the example I want them to follow for their future too.... Nice to meet you all..I am glad I am not alone on this journey.
