No, I don't do anything outside but I do Yoga at home. It's ok for me. I watched the Yoga video and after that I follow the instruction of the video. I always do like this way. I didn't go any classes for that.

To stay in shape and healthy, I started to join the Swimming group for the last six months. I'm attending the classes twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday at 6 p.m after I finish my job. It helps me a lot, with back pain and make me feel more relax and energetic. My instructor is so kind and friendly, he gives us advice on what should we eat and how we can stay on shape.
