Hi there and welcome to Spark People! I love Yoga and do it with an older friend of mine. She has rheumatoid arthritis and it has really helped to loosen up her joints.

This is a wonderful place to get support and inspiration and to meet others who are wanting to make positive changes in their lives!

I hope you will jump right in and make yourself at home! Join a Spark Team, participate on the boards, and most importantly have fun and make friends!

You can do it!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.

A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Hi Casey, and welcome to SparkPeople. One of the Spark Coaches, Stepfanie Romine, does lots of yoga, and writes some great blogs. This site has awesome resources, and I'm sure it will help you to reach your goals.

Oh, and you aren't the only one out there. Check out this blog:

Hi, I'm the FAT yoga instructor. The only one in the state I believe. I don't know when it happened but things are going to change. I thought about waiting until the "New Year" but then I thought WHY? It would only mean MORE weight to loose. I am staying home this Christmas so I can watch what I eat easier than if I were visiting the family.

I'm here to get healthier just one day at a time!
