February 14, 2014 - 9 went

4 DAY TRIP: Orocopia Mtn., Rabbit Peak, Rosa Pt., Black Butte, Chuckwalla Mtn.

I haven't done any yoga recently, and didn't warm up for this, so I was conservative. My last operation (of 3 in 4 months) was just 1 month ago, and wide-leg stances cause nasty reactions.

    I'm not trying to do yoga in the "pose." The closest thing would be the floor exercise "scale." It's mainly symbolic, partly explained here: http://hwstock.org/bridge11yrs/ and here: http://hwstock.org/my_cerebellar_stroke.htm

    i get it. and...doing yoga in the "pose" would do a world of good. and yes, i'm seriously biased.

    My stretching (when I am healthy) is pretty targeted. The original "Yoga" stretches were introduced to me 40 years ago as warm up before and after tae kwon do, so the exercise were highly biased toward leg flexibility. I've changed the routine a lot over the years, and still call it "Yoga" because no one seems to understand if I call it anything else. I haven't done anything like ate kwon do in 38 years, but the flexibility is more useful now than ever. Like any kind of exercise, one must do it regularly, or risk injury with a too-quick return.
