Yoga: Mind Your Own Business (or keep your mind on your mat!)

  I hurt myself in yoga class.  Yes, if you do it wrong it hurts.  Really bad.  So bad I did not lift weights for my upper body for about 2 months.  That’s a really big deal for me.  It’s hard when you can’t move like you are used to moving. And, lifting weights is …
