My first yoga experience was the first week of August, 2008 when I joined some friends for a daily "beginner's yoga" session as part of a week-long retreat with church friends at the YMCA camp in Estes Park, CO. Through the windows, I could see Ypsilon Mountain as I first learned of "mountain pose." Learning to breathing deeply in the late summer air of the Rocky Mountains was a spiritual experience.

Within the week, I discovered that I could get out of bed in the morning without back pain. I could stand on one foot for the first time in years. (I'm 61 years old.) I could bend over to tie my shoes without thinking about it first. All this in six days!

Then I heard your podcast (which I download every week because no station in Kansas City carries your show --- yet). What Seane Corn shared makes SO much sense. I took the podcast to my weekly Yoga class and shared it with everyone there. Now even my wife is interested in trying Yoga to improve flexibility. Thank you so much!
