Yoga

Yesterday, our school district had their annual Pro-D day.  When I signed up for the Yoga for Kids workshop I was feeling pretty good.  Unfortunately, the past week (OK, maybe the past 3 weeks) I have not been feeling up to 'snuff', especially my legs...number, stiffer, weaker...:(

I convinced myself that this would be good for me.  Isn't Yoga supposed to be good for us MSer's??  My real concern was the balance part because with the increased numbness my balance has been more 'off' than 'on'.  Well the room had a ballet bar and I made a point of letting the instructor know I had balance issues. (I wasn't in the mood to tell her I had MS...just yet)  The problem with having to position myself near the ballet bar was that it was in the front of the class and had a full length mirror along the wall.  So not only could everyone see me...I could see everyone being able to see me! Greeaatt :(

I actually did pretty good.  Yes, there were some poses I could…
