You should take up smoking cigarettes or wacking it instead, much easier.

smoking would be bad for high blood pressure, don't you think?

True, I think whacking it is your best option here.

yoga is awesome....just get over the "it ain't macho" stereotype....best thing I've ever done, my body was kind of a wreck after a bad accident...

most YMCA's will include it in their membership...or you can find individual yoga instructors but they can be expensive...

start in a begginers class, very important...it will be frustrating as hell for a while becuase you will discover that muscles you didn't know existed are weak and tight...little old ladies will bend into pretzels while you try and touch your toes....but it changes your mood...learn how to breathe right...can't recommend it enough...will make you stronger without gaining mass

whew

Either way, if it doesn't finish with a happy ending, then how can it be considered stress-relieving?

I have a friend that teaches here in town on occasion, I'll see what places he recommends if you like.

It just isn't something for me as stretching is my least favorite part of working out, hehe.

I was just trying to make an example...actually the classes are 75% women, mostly younger and hot moms...all incredibly flexible...

that'd be cool. thanks.

i'm a little self-conscious... i tend to do my exercise in my own house. what about starting it at home and by myself till i'm better or if i figure out i want to continue it?

I actually know this guy, he as been a musician in Louisville forever... it just seems weird that he has one of the most popular podcasts :eek:

I do it with the wife. It really helps my balance and flexibility for sports. It's just glorified stretching, but stretching is an important part of staying healthy and preventing injury.

We tried it with a tape, that was ridiculous. It claimed to be a beginner's yoga... it wasn't. We found that out after both of us tried a move and landed flat on our faces
