I've started taking drop-in classes at the yoga school based near my office reasonably frequently.
The teacher is also a friend,but she is very good at what she does. The style is strong on relaxation exercises, which are already proving very helpful to me. Yes, I did briefly drop off to sleep in the relaxation at the end of class on Saturday!
This is the same teacher who was so good with Mater last month. So when she launches her new timetable later this month, I hope that Mater will be able to start attending regularly with the support of her carers.
For me, well - this style of yoga is much easier to do at your own pace, and in your own time away from the classes, than is the style of aikido I've been following. So this is perfect when I don't have the stamina for aikido (like, the past year ... wail).
There going to be a 12 week course in the new yoga timetable, and I hope that I can take it.
Meanwhile, tonight is the last chance I get to go to an aikido class before October ... if I feel well enough, but I've got the sniffles, a sore throat and slight sore lymph nodes again. This has been going on for ... well, weeks at least, if not months. Every time I start to feel properly well again, and I test my stamina with something like a cycle ride, the cold-like symptoms slink back. Any helpful suggestions for throwing this thing off completely, gratefully received!
