Additions to My Training

Towards the end of last year, my wife (Raj) and I started doing yoga again.  Friends and family have been encouraging me to do more stretching and I have really enjoyed yoga in the past, so Raj and I started up at the Emmaus Yoga Studio here in Pennsylvania.  We love it and think it is really going to help us with flexibility, balance, and strength.  Our teacher focuses on the style of yoga called Ashtanga yoga.  I don't know lots of details about it, but we move rather quickly through poses and really focus on breathing.  It has been great fun and a good workout.

Also, this past week Raj got me a session with a strength trainer.  He had me do a bunch of exercises and and observed me for weeknesses, then set me up with a series of low tech exercises to strengthen my core and legs.  More details to come about this later.
