    Public Radio just reviewed this book:

    The Science of Yoga, Risks and Rewards by Richard Broad

    I plan on buying it within the next week.

    As a point of Interest, Nancy Oswald, who was the top rookie in the 2009 Iron Butt on her BMW R1200GS credited yoga with helping her do 11,005 miles and end up in 20th place....

    I hope to lay over in Peoria on my way to the Rally.

    I bought one of Jim Strickland's R75/5's.

    Is Nancy Oswald a member of BMWMOA?

    TIA

    My wife teaches yoga. I learn from the "trickle down" effect. I do yoga stretches on the road, modified to do while riding down the road. It really helps. No more sciatica. Better concentration on the road. Right now she is taking a class in breathing. This could certainly be done whilst riding down the road. There was a yoga event at Johnson City. Be careful of yoga teachers that want you to twist around alot. You should never do anything that hurts.

    Dear Ultra,
    Looking forward to meeting you...here in Washington or at the Rally. Jim -as you might know - bought my R100/7. Now he's bought an RS. I haven't seen it yet....
    Nancy is (was?) a member of BMWBMW (BMW Biker of Metropolitian Washington), so I assume she's an MOA member. Maybe someone from that club knows.
    Hello, anyone out there???

    We may be meeting prior to the rally.
    I have shared with Jim that I want to fix my p-rod oil seals prior to the rally.

    I love my '73 R75/5. She is a sweetie.
    Best,
    Howard

    good idea for yoga

    Great idea to have a morning session of yoga. It could be 30-60 minutes to get the blood circulating after sleeping on the ground, even with a nice comfy mattress. When you boilng water for your morning coffee it's a good time to stretch and smell the coffee and flowers. Not as young anymore, I do yoga stretches after getting gas and a stop at a road side park. I just don't take out the mat.

    I go to yoga now and then, but just for the eye candy in spandex. Wrong reason, I know.



    However, the thought of watching graybeards in suspenders doing yoga at the Rally is very disturbing.

    Ya'll need to take a Life Drawing class so that you are unaffected by the sight of bodies, big, small, or in-between.

    I just finished my very first yoga class and really enjoyed it!

    Let's see how I feel tomorrow after all that bending and stretching.

    A friend of mine and MOA member, Lisa, led the Camp Gears kids in a Yoga session in Johnson City. Andrea was unable to attend and offer her seminar, and Lisa stepped in and provided 2 seminars as well as a morning stretch for those interested.

    Jerry and I have been participating in Gentle Yoga classes, and it's been great for stretching.
    You're right......if it hurts, it's not doing you any good.
