Who says you can't learn anything from teenagers?  Many teens are far smarter than myself when it comes to relaxation and stress relief.  They live active lifestyles with a myriad of sports activities to keep them physically balanced and healthy.  I was surprised to learn that they are even into Yoga. 

Yoga is a great alternative for those of us whose bodies have aged and are feeling the aches and pains of daily living.  There is no high impact Jillian Michael's jumping up and down or Billy Blank's  kicking and punching - just nice and slow movements to gently stretch my under or over used muscles.  Unlike the many challenges of going to the gym,  I can do this at home on my carpet (no Bowflex required).  My massage therapist may even thank me for making her job easier. 

Let's face it, Yoga is probably the easiest way for us reluctant exercisers to relax and rejuvenate ourselves.  If you want even easier you should try the David Delight.  Wait...isn't taking the easy way out something a teenager would do?
