It’s the time of year when we’re bombarded with advice on shaping up. New year! New you! My God!
I open up e-mails daily with subject lines from “Simple Solutions to help with weight-loss resolutions” to Suzanne Somers latest and greatest tips on staying “sexy forever.”
What’s a FOF to do? I recommend that if you do nothing else, introduce yourself to Iyengar Yoga, like I did almost three years ago. When my sister told me I’d better take yoga if I wanted to maintain my balance as I aged, and not shuffle around like a geezer, I got right on it!
Iyengar won’t turn you into a size 4 or a sex fiend. It will quiet your mind and strengthen your body. And if there are two things we all want when we’re FOF, quieting our minds and strengthening our bodies have to be high up on our priority list. I love Iyengar because it teaches me poses that help strengthen my muscles, increase my flexibility and focus my thoughts. It’s not exhausting. It’s exhilarating.
