Power Yoga

First time back at Power Yoga since the surgery. It showed me how tight I am on the left(operated) side compared to the right. Not in the hip joint, ironically, but in the hamstrings, calves, etc. By the end of the class, I had stretched to the point where I felt equal on both sides, but I must admit as soon as I sit down I tighten up again. I can see that I can stretch it, though.

Yoga is such a gift. You learn so much about yourself. The sense of community is awesome. And the stretching and strengthening seem so much more interesting than just doing exercises in a gym.
