A Little Less Sore Today

Yes, I am a complainer.  Especially about pain.
Stretching helps the soreness from exercise diminish but it comes back pretty quickly.  Yoga today was hard work but even after just 4 classes I can tell that my balance is improving, which is pretty incredible.
An OTR told me yesterday about one of her home health clients who once did not have the endurance to stand from sitting and then walk only 3' before getting out of breath.  Through using breathing techniques that were learned via yoga classes the client improved, over about 2 months, to being able to walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath.  I don't know much about yoga after just 4 sessions myself but I think that's pretty amazing.
