Measuring up

Well so far yoga has been a lot more of a challenge I anticipated. I had assumed since I’m a runner I’d be able to keep up with the class. Guess again… I can tell I’m in a for a real workout this fall.  On the first day of class we took body measurements to compare with measurements we’ll take at the end to see the benefits of yoga. I thought I’d share mine.



Biceps: Right, 11 inches. Left, 11 inches.

Chest: 37 1/2 inches

Waist: 34 inches

Abdomen: 37 inches

Hips: 38 inches

Thighs: Right, 20 inches. Left, 21 inches

Calves: Right, 14 inches. Left. 14inches

Ankles: Right, 8 1/2 inches, Left 8 1/2 inches

Wrist: Right, 6 inches, Left 6 inches

Waist to hip ratio: . 894736842

Hopefully these numbers will change for the better. Wish me luck!!
