So much truth to this!! Yoga is the fountain of youth. Do it slowly and listen to the instructor. Breathing is the key. Your body and your mind. Keep it as healthy as you can. Success follows in unimaginable ways

Good luck man. It will get better. First day back to work in 06 I was hit head on while driving a cabover.. Woman on a cell phone crossed the center line. Worked first half of that season on crutches. You will learn to appreciate the small improvments that come every week.

Thanks for the positive comments. I heard there was some hotties doing yoga lessons on youtube so I will try that in the morning before work. My knee was in pain this morning since the rod starts at the bottom of the knee and goes up to the hip almost.

Stan, you are lucky my best friend/brother/worker (Adam) was like that he use to push his street bikes, Mustangs, and Harleys all the time. My lawns are near his house and every time the mother sees me she beeps or hugs me at the gas station and cries. I keep the streetbike even though it's totaled and into pieces but have it in the garage so it makes me remember the good memories of Adam and I working on it late nights with a beer and food joking around. The other reason is to remind me I cheated death and not to buy another bike.

I remember I signed a waiver which I found in my room in a folder that says there was a chance of them removing my LEG!

Last June I had a seizure while driving my truck (luckily it was a rain day and I didn't have the trailer attached). I was on the highway. The truck went to the right and slammed into a guard rail. It then proceeded to flip end over end about 3 times (according to eyewitness reports) and spit me out the drivers side window. The truck came to rest halfway over me, but luckily I was in a little bit of a ditch. No other vehicles involved. I walked out of the hospital about 4 hours later with a black eye, a headache and a few scratches on my arm. I was working again 2 days later. Ya just never know.

Oh yeah....I'm back on my seizure medication they told me I didn't have to take any more.

Actually yoga is a scientific practice that leads to control over the mind, senses and body. It has nothing to do with women in spandex as it is made out to be. I am not saying that is right or wrong, but that is a different thing than Yoga.
The physical postures in yoga are only the 3rd of 8 stages that make up the system. Basically the postures are to keep the body strong and to calm the mind and body for meditation.
Good luck. Please let me know if you have any questions. Yoga changed my life and improved me infinitely times over and its something I like to help other people catch

yoga

Not sure if you all know the Jake the snake Roberts story or Scott Hall (ex pro wrestlers) that where basically going to die or be in wheelchairs and apparently they got involved in yoga and they made unreal comebacks and look great and are clean and healthy. I guess it really does work..
