    I've never seen this thread before.

    I need to read though it. Yoga has been recommended to me by several people, including my rheumatologist.

    If you haven't had a mindfulness course yet, you may really benefit from that as well.... We have a program at work where we all participate, I have really really enjoyed the courses I took and use it every day.

    This thread is new to me too - as was yoga, about a year or so ago.
    Now it's part of my morning discipline.
    People of all sizes and shapes attend (my gym isn't a meat/meet market) and participate.
    Great fun to mock, but also kinda fun to participate also (maybe like a PRS - outstanding joke-fodder AND fun to play)

    A good yoga class (IMO) will start w/ an inquiry about any special needs (injuries, new to this, Dr warnings, etc) and will have a leader who reminds students to avoid moves that bring pain.
    Look for opportunities to develop better balance - standing on one foot for a moment or two - what an opportunity to look forward to next time when you stand 10 seconds longer next time...
    Look for opportunities to develop some flexibility (twisting left & right) and getting acquainted w/ low impact movement.

    But, the first session may look and feel a little bit like this (att)
    Peace - Deeve

    Yoga is awesome. Seriously. I never pictured myself as a guy who'd say that.
    But it really brings so much benefit to me
