It wasn't until I started experiencing daily pain and tightness in my hip joints that a dance teacher suggested that I try her yoga class. It was challenging for me to sit in easy pose for more than 5 seconds! After one month of vinyasa yoga and lots of hip opening poses, my hips no longer ached and I became serious about my yoga practice. Since those unexceptional beginnings, I have taken many opportunities to learn much more about yoga and physical fitness in general. I am grateful for having had studied with many excellent teachers and I continue to learn everyday.
