Yoga – what a stretch!

Sunday, 3 September, 2006

Wow!  I haven’t done any exercise for about 13 years.  I have been feeling very stiff and old indeed so, approaching my 40th birthday, I  thought it was time to do something about it.  I’ve tried yoga before and found it very centering, relaxing and challenging.  I thought that a bit of Yoga at home would be a good introduction to the world of fitness before I brave the outside world of gyms, classes and running (yeah right!).  So I purchased a video off ebay: Yoga for Beginners with Joy Nielen.  Excellent!

Two weeks later: I’ve done two sessions and my flexibility has already improved.  More importantly it’s getting me back in touch with my body – part of the important trio of mind, body and soul.

Walking for Charity! Would you like to donate?
I always admire people who exercise regularly.
Someone who inspires me greatly at the moment is friend and colleague, Heather Warring.  She is The Walker’s Coach and is doing the Charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer Walk this September. 

‘The Aviva Weekend to Breakthrough Breast Cancer is a two-day, 60 km walk through the neighbourhoods of London, taking place 15-17 September 2006. All proceeds benefit Breakthrough Breast Cancer, funding vital breast cancer research and educational programmes.’
