A simple routine

Yoga was a means of stretching after a jog. Now, ten years later it has become an obsession. I follow a simple routine of about an hour every morning at 5:30 a.m. Its refreshing and relaxing. I will try to describe the routine I follow as a series of postures. Nothing here is strict, except that its done slowly with a steady rhythmic breathing. Each posture is entered and exited with gentle smooth motion and maintained for about 5 breaths. I usually listen to a book while doing yoga so the entire exercise is a pleasant experience.
