Is Yoga Necessary? --- Day 237

Walk: Various shopping centers: Sausalito, Corte Madera, Sacramento Street
Distance: 1 mile and take yoga class

Start teaching again tomorrow after 9 days off yoga.  Wonder how it will go.  In just 9 days away I felt changes from not doing yoga: mentally scattered, stiffer/less pliant.  When I did exercise: run, hike, the parts of me that weren't exercised felt 'left out.'  Yoga works the whole body, mind, emotions.  It centers, calms and also energizes, opens, makes fluid conferring a sort of youthfulness.  I was surprised as I hadn't expected to notice much by taking time away.  More after returning to teaching......Now, to Alex Trebek and respite from the conventions.
