I love my yoga classes. It’s like one hour stillness in my practice. I focus on my breathing and practice the poses. I love it.

I try to do yoga almost every night before bed. I’ve been doing it for the last fourteen years. I am 59 years old now and I still do it. I love it. I plan on practicing yoga up until the day I die.

I injured my knees so I’ve started doing yoga as my main form of exercise. I was doing weights and kettlebell training so I’m used to hard work. Yoga is difficult, it makes me sweat!

I’m so proud of myself! I did a 10 minute morning yoga for beginners. It’s not much, but I feel all stretched out and nice. If anyone is interested:
