Yosemite non-profit, Balanced Rock, is offering to provide morning yoga sessions as a service to this year's Facelift. The classes will be facilitated by Balanced Rock instructors who live in the Yosemite area. Classes will be from 7:00am-8:00am at Yellow Pines. The classes are free and everyone is welcome. Is there interest?

Hmmm, 7:00 - 8:00 AM seems a touch early, although it may help roust out the troops. Will there be coffee?

How about yoga for the creakies and crinklies?

Also, my personal preference is the downward cat, FWIW.

Sounds like it'll add a nice touch to the FaceLift! Maybe not every morning?

Anders, you retard, there IS a "downward cat" in yoh-guh. Hands 'n' knees with spinal flexion; it's a great position to puke in.

I doubt that Loki would approve unless, of course, you had one big honkin' bezoar of a hairball to gack up.

It's ok, Cait - property values in Camp 4 jumped when they heard you were staying there. And, as you say, it's closer to the action, plus a superior class of camper to those in steerage over at Yeller Pine.

Anyway, I'm totally looking forward to doing the yoga every morning, and I'll be going out later to buy the uniform. Not sure about jstan.

Yoga....why would I want to do yoga....I'm so flexible now that I can bend down and touch my knees without bending them! Can you do that?

Actually it sounds like fun....if I'm not indulging in my bacon cravings with Sullly.

Thought I'd beat everyone to it (and I've always wanted to post that).

Hey nita! Yoga is great for strength training and stabilization -- just avoid anything that stretches anything that doesn't need stretching. ")

Hi Heather, you can definitely count me in for yoga and thank you and everyone at Balanced Rock for providing this. I met you at the Yoga Jambalaya last year - the Balanced Rock instructors are amazing!
