Yoga: There is an ap,for that

I sometimes make it to a yoga class in Seward, held at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Mary, the instructor, is quite good, and I always enjoy the class a lot. It doesn't work with my schedule to go but once a week for most of the year. January, however, is a month when I can attend both meeting times. I will make the effort to go!
Last week I found an ap for iPad called "Simply Yoga" and I have tried it twice. I think the instruction is good, and I even receive a daily reminder to practice. When I did the tree pose this morning I was pretty wobbly. The ap told me that the tree pose will sharpen my mental focus--I was just hoping that it improves my balance.

I have noticed that many people who write blogs pick a word or a theme in early January as they are contemplating the new year. So, I have decide to follow suit and pick a word, and it is BALANCE.
I feel out of balance quite frequently, so it is something I think I should think about, and work on.
One way to physically work on balance is to exercise, to practice yoga, and I do need to do this before I start falling over on a regular basis instead of just catching myself as I begin to topple over. I believe I know what to do, but I have not taken time to do it. I have yoga videos, I know the class schedule for the local teacher, and I have an ap for that. I think to be consistent I will have to schedule a daily time for practicing yoga, and I am pretty sure that time will have to be in the morning after my first cup of coffe. That way I can have a second cup of coffe to look forward to as a reward.
The other kinds of balance may be trickier to figure out. I think it best to get one thing in balance and then the others will fall into place.
