Still leading Ashtanga Yoga class at Riverfront

Recently earned at Mobile AL 5K run
3rd place age group 60-65

Well, certainly a long time since last post.  I am practicing yoga and teaching two classes per week at the Moss Point Community Center, usually Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series to a few students.  Now I am an experienced E- RYT-500 yoga teacher with yoga alliance, not many reach this level in our state. I am only male listed.  The others have yoga studios they manage, but I chose to focus on the community center introduction to Ashtanga teaching and the regular practice of yoga.  This certainly keeps me in good health and active at age 64.

I have recently been training with crossfit as well and at the local gym keeping my strength and improving overall functional abilities.  Scaled for age I am doing well and now interested in stepping this up a notch, as it helps with the Ashtanga Yoga, too.  I must admit my muscles are tightening up, very noticable while doing binding poses, especially Marichyasanas A-D.

I have a new goal and started today with a 90 day program logging exercise and food intake.  Goal is to lose 10 pounds in 90 days and exercise twice per day, while posting daily results here.
