With the help of an ancient practice, the flexibility and balance that today's busy lifestyles require can be restored. Yoga, a word meaning to yoke or join together, is a comprehensive form of self-care, says Simone Heurich, a certified yoga instructor living in Smithsburg. [cont. from lifestyle ] "It's a vast body of knowledge," says Heurich, who has been practicing yoga for 25 years and teaching for at least five. Through breathing, various postures and meditation, people are encouraged to explore what's inside, rather than focusing on the external world.

Me, yoga and a few boo-boos All right, so I didn't have the best of attitudes when I went in for my first-ever yoga class last week. Right out of the chute, I have problems with all those Y words: Yoga, Yogurt, Yodel, Yankees, Yogi Bear, Yellow Pages, Yuma City. Yoplait Yogurt. Yuck. But since I am more inflexible than Ralph Nader, I figured yoga might be the answer. Most people can touch their toes. On a good day, I can touch my knees. My idea of the lotus position is sitting in a beanbag chair with a bowl of lard-fried potato chips balanced on my stomach.

Every day at lunch, there's a rainbow on Simone Heurich's plate. She begins with a salad of purple cabbage with green peas sprinkled throughout. The main course is a combination of chopped red pepper, broccoli, bite-size squares of sweet potato, yellow squash and cauliflower, with South Asian-style seasonings and ginger. Rounding out the meal is dal - an orangy-red dish of split red lentils seasoned in turmeric and other spices - and quinoa, a small South American grain (pronounced kih-NO-uh)

Yoga taught me the art of breathing Over the last few months, I've noticed that my mother says, "Take care of yourself," as our long-distance phone conversations wind down to good-bye. Like asking, "How are you?" at the beginning of a call, saying, "Take care of yourself," is a fairly standard thing to say before hanging up. Maybe she says it now that she's 82 and has some health problems she doesn't want me to have. They haven't stopped her - just slowed her pace from the breakneck speed that is her trademark.
