Can't take the yoga class because I ride with a friend who is handicapped and she takes the senior fitness class.
I love yoga!
For those looking for free yoga workouts, start up YouTube and type in "yoga workout". You'll get lots.
I've been doing yoga for almost 20 years and love it. It has taught me how to be mindful about moving my body and how to be slow and controlled. I believe it has contributed to my ability to do things like Body Pump because I am more aware of positions and movements.
I am going to look for some yoga tapes and start to doing yoga. See how I like it.
I love yoga...I need to do it more often.
When I started at the Y last month I had yoga classes on my schedule for Tuesday and Thursdays...pilates MON, WED and fri. They took away the yoga and replaced with another pilates so now it's pilates all week. I'm missing the yoga that I was only able to take a few times. The hour went so fast that I didn't even realize that what I was doing was actually suppost to be considered exercise. It was great and I'm looking into taking some later in the day yoga classes that they now have available.
Oh, and I'm not a small girl and not everyone in the class is perfect looking. We are all there to benefit our mind body and spirit.
I was wondering if there were any free yoga workouts online? I'm looking for a full 20min or greater workout that is all in one video. Not just links to different poses. Anyone have any sites that they use??
I got into yoga over the summer and loved it. because of work I was unable to make it, now I really would like to get back into it because I felt so good after class.
I'd be interested in knowing how big these women that were studied were. I'm quite large (and inflexible), and let me tell you, taking a college Yoga & Pilates class with skinny, bendy girls didn't do a lot for my self-esteem. Not to mention the fact that I irrevocably screwed up my knee from that class and it hasn't worked right for the past 2 years. I'm scared to ever try yoga again!
I am getting into yoga again - I got away from it and have only been doing it again for 4 days but feel better already. It is great for your spirit and soul (mind will and emotions) - what's not to love about that? It helps with breathing (energy) and focus too.
I just started a yoga class. It was wonderful. I haven't felt so relaxed in a long time. It should curb my stress and anxiety, and hopefully my lower back pain. I want to try it all. Stretching has always worked for me, and the added breathing exercises are so important to it all.
Yoga helps to release the power within the body to naturally heal itself.
For anyone waffling about whether or not to try yoga I can heartily recommend giving it a try. I have chronic pain and yoga has helped to relieve the symptoms and made me feel better overall. There are some poses I cannot do because of my physical limitations, but it hasn't mattered. I do the poses I can and forget the rest. The breathing, once mastered, helps relax and aid one in the accomplishment of the pracitce. I use a book and a DVD to help me learn and advance - classes, while recommended, are not a necessity.
