I started practicing yoga at least 15 years ago, beginning with an eight-week yoga class at Unity Church. I continued the practice with the use of yoga videos (Rodney Yee is a favorite) and the occasional yoga class. I’ve been actively engaged in a regular fitness regimen during this time also and I make sure I use certain yoga poses to stretch before and after my work-out. As I approach senior citizen status, I have decided that a great way to remain fit, eat healthy and create and maintain a balance life is to become a yoga instructor. This will deepen my yoga practice by enhancing my overall physical fitness and allow me to be mindful of the body, mind connection in my daily life. More importantly, it will make a huge difference in the lives of others, particularly those baby-boomers who are seniors or rapidly approaching senior status. As a baby boomer I am committed to living a long healthy active life and yoga is a wonderful pathway.
