I volunteered to teach a couple yoga classes at the Rangeley Region Fitness Center and thanks to my parents who recruited their friends, I had a class full of enthusiastic fifty-somethings. They were AWESOME! They came committed, enthusiastic and I think it was a reality check for a lot of the men on just how aerobic yoga can be. It’s not just sitting on a mat and stretching for 60 minutes. The class was pretty heavily modified to accommodate an older audience. I can’t wait to see them again on Tuesday and Wednesday!
