Yoga class

I have started yoga class. It’s a course for beginners in Astanga Yoga and this time last year when I was recovering from abdominal surgery I could barely walk let alone this kind of exercise. I used to go a Iyengar yoga class but stopped when I moved house five years ago.

I was able to keep up with the poses and movements and I put this down to regular cycling and carrying the Brompton. (I now have strong thighs and arms.) I brought a special eco-friendly yoga mat which has a non-slip surface and I got this mat cover so that I can sling it over my back and cycle to class. I am getting fit for cycling through the winter.
