While I'm on the Subject of Sting...

Did anyone catch him on the Grammys? He opened the show with the Police (who are reuniting to tour...very cool). He looked fan-freakin'-tastic! Damn! This is a man who is in his mid-50s! He was taught, toned, and on his game. Now, sure, there's no telling if he has partaken of any facial plastic surgery or Botox, but no plastic surgery can produce perfectly sculpted biceps—he and his wife Trudie are admitted yoga fanatics—and have been practicing for years.

All I'm saying is, if that's what yoga can do for a man who's had his share of fun and wild living, imagine what it can do for those who live life on the simpler side? It seems to be a key tributary of the fountain of youth. Like Sting, I love that it is a practice that will be with me the rest of my life. Something to balance me, challenge me, inspire me, ground me.

PS: Sting's love of yoga isn't just lip service, either. You can now do a yoga retreat at his lovely little castle in Tuscany, Il Palagio. How cool is that? Note to self: Add that to my list of things to do before I die.
