I started doing yoga to help with my back.

As I went to more and more classes, I realized there was more to this class than just a stretch or work out. So, I opened myself up to going to different classes (not just crunch gym). I found that to truly get a full stretch, I have to release my mind.

In this picture here, I have my toes up in my silks. To me this is where I can get good blood flow, fall into complete relaxation and breathe the best.
