I've taken up Yoga again and I'm enjoying it. I quit yoga class about four years ago because with the contant influx of newbies we were rarely getting into any of the more challenging stuff, plus I already had a gym membership and the climbing wall doesn't come cheap, and all the expenses added up.

But I had to realize recently that yoga isn't a luxury for me but a necessity - I've been getting stiff as hell. Any longer and I'd get real back problems. When I went to a trial class, I couldn't do movements that were no problem four years ago. Yikes. After two times, I feel like there's already a tiny improvement, back's started to loosen up a bit and after the second class my lower back didn't hurt like it did after the first one. (Forget about actually challenging stuff... I'll be happy sticking to the basics...)
