Our Yoga Try Out was a Gas!

Our friend Amber is not only an astrophysicist for NASA, but she's now also teaching yoga locally, and Tom has always wanted to try it out. So, on Tuesday night, May 7th we attended Amber's local class. Amber is a warm, funny, easy-going person who makes a great instructor. 
We couldn't balance to do this!
   The class lasted for about 1 hour, and Tom and I were bending and stretching things that we didn't know existed for the last 20 years!  It sounded like we were having breakfast with all the "Snap, crackle and pop" going on! 
  About half way through the class I heard someone "poot" near me, and Tom quietly said "Ooops!" I immediately thought it was him and started laughing (quietly) tucking my head down. It took about 5 minutes for me to stop.  Apparently, yoga really does relax, because it helped the "pooter!"
  The class was great, and the relaxation exercises at the end really did bring us a calmness that we usually don't experience during the week. We recommend it and look forward to coming back next week!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
