Yoga


I started up my yoga practice again after a bit of a break.  I think the hot yoga I took all winter did help with flexibility, but I really did miss the kinder, gentler, use props if you need to, listen to singing bowls,  smell the incense, and meditate kind of yoga.

Some day I will be motivated enough to practice every day right in the comfort of my own home.  Should be easy enough because there are hundreds of videos available on Youtube.  I'll let you know how that works out for me.

  1. I have heard many things regarding yoga. People say yoga is good for our body and mind. They should be done properly. Waiting for your reply...

  2. I have heard a lot about yoga, and I have also heard a lot about Tai Chi. For myself, I think I would like to try Tai Chi, but both seem quite beneficial for mental and physical health.

  3. Yoga really is great for the ole body. I wouldn't mind a class here but so far nothing. Think I am with you. The only time I did get to enjoy--it sure wasn't the hot version.

  4. My daughter loves yoga, too. I have tried it once, but didn't really care for it.

  5. I'm glad your knees are still good enough for yoga. I have a need to do something also. I'm do a little research on it. I found a Hula Hoop program for the granddaughter while I was looking. I might find something for everyone.

  6. I have to find something but I'm not sure Yoga is it for me - plus I know me, I would never get myself to the classes. I would find an excuse.. I need it more for the mediation than for the physical part. I need a way to center and calm myself and not stress out! I'm glad Yoga works for you.

  7. I don't suppose sitting on your butt and reading a book qualifies? Damn. What if I sit in the lotus position? Fat chance of that unless you give me epidural first. I think my knees have about 15 degrees of range of motion.

    1. Oh the cartoon is me right on. I probably have a better chance of getting into the lotus position than I do quieting the chatter box in my head.

  8. I took Yoga for years - always beginner because when I tried an advanced and they were jumping into positions, I knew that wasn't for me. Now, my PT has me doing a set of yoga stretches every morning. I also have tapes, but I rarely use them. I do like to be in a class, but I have trouble scheduling one. Good Luck with yours. I have a friend who teaches hot yoga back East. I dislike exercising in heat, so I've never tried that.

  9. I took a yoga class while I was on my extended vacation in January. It was a drop in class and I really enjoyed it though everyone else in the class was far more flexible than I am...which would indicate I need it. Enjoy!

  10. I tried yoga for just three sessions in Chicago and it was really wonderful. My son really felt it would be beneficial for me. However, the classes were so expensive that I ended up not taking any more lessons. I'm so glad you're enjoying it.

  11. I think I ought to try that. I need to be more in touch with the inner peace and I need to flex the bodt more.
