Took a yoga class this morning. What a great way to exercise AND relax. (Yoga is an ancient exercise/activity undertaken to prepare the body/mind for meditation and prayer.)

I wasn't even CLOSE to binding poses, but Yoga is not about what you can't do... it's about what you/your body can do and respecting "that place" where you are.... ah, acceptance.

Acceptance. Accepting and honoring what I can do with my body, with its many imperfections, and yet in those yoga moments it is perfect.

Accepting where I am, in this moment... a new way to think and to be.

    I'm still overweight enough I can't even easily get up and down from the floor, so yoga's not yet for me.

    But I have 3 daughters, all healthy (didn't want to struggle like their mom did!)...and they all three do Yoga. In fact, my middle daughter teaches kindergarten, and they have a Kinder-Yoga class. She says it's amazing how that class calms her little ones down while at the same time invigorating them for the 2nd half of the day.

    I plan to start it one day...good for you!
