Yoga Exercises

I was skeptical when I read your comments about being able to separate your toes out wide to the sides. Went to a yoga class yesterday and noticed to instructor do just that! I guess I should re-think what is possible.

Vern your post reminded me something my father could do. He could bend all the joints on both hands at the same time or individually at the first joint. He was a dentist which may have something to do with it. Can any of you bend your first joint in your fingers at will? He almost bent them a full 90 degrees.

Vern, everyone finds it difficult at first. Your muscles are being asked to do something they haven't done before and it takes them a while (a) to get strong enough to do it and (b) understand the instruction to do it. Persevere. It's worth it.
