Taking the back road to Yoga

One of my greatest longings in my practice has been to practice with another.  To this end, I am currently in my third beginning hatha class mainly so I can practice with others.  Finally, however, it would seem that I will have a permanent practice partner.  My wife injured her back in the Winter of 2000-20001 badly enough that she had surgery in November of 2001 to relieve the pain.  She had been told that she would need to strengthen both her back and abdominal muscles to prevent further injury to her back.  As evidenced by the back strain that hit her last Tuesday, she’s not done enough and I told her plainly that she has to start practicing with me.
