“It’s nothing I ever did in my whole life,’’ Daniel said. “I always thought it was a sissy thing, or I felt I didn’t need it. I don’t pass judgment anymore.’’
Since practicing yoga, Daniel says his range of motion is better than it has been in years. He is no longer tight in the morning. He picks things up off the floor easier and can mount stairs at school with as much, if not more, agility than his students.
“I’ve got strength to do things that I want to do and I’m not feeling handicapped by age,’’ he said.
