A few good gym members joint for an online yoga session.
interesting quote from the author William Irvine.
Yoga has improved my balance and flexibility, reminded me of the importance of play, and made me acutely aware of how little control I have over the contents of my mind. But besides conferring these and other benefits to me, yoga has been a wonderful source of voluntary discomfort. While doing yoga, I twist myself into poses that are uncomfortable or that in some cases border on being painful. I will, for example, bend my legs until they are at the very edge of a cramp and then back off a bit. My yoga teacher, never talks about pain instead, she talks about poses giving rise to too much sensation. She has taught me how to breathe into the place that hurts. The technique undeniably works.
