Yoga and Netflix

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Whoo! Today I did a 45-minute basic yoga video from Netflix streaming, and it was GREAT. It wasn't anything super-intense -- went fairly slow, relaxation between each pose -- but I was still sweating! And I felt so good afterwards. Calm, clear, relaxed. I need to do more of this!

I enjoyed that the instructor kept reminding you to just do as much as you can with each pose, not to feel bad if you can't do the full thing right away, that you will get more flexible with practice. Very positive.

The video I did was "Yoga for Health: Basic" with Jenny Cornero instructing. I recommend it. I'm not sure how I feel about the breathing exercise at the beginning, but the rest of it is great.

By the way, I love that Netflix has a whole bunch of different exercise videos available for instant streaming. It gives me a whole variety of things to choose from. And it means I can just try something out, and if it doesn't work for me, I can turn it off and do something else -- and I haven't wasted any money.

Technology is wonderful sometimes!

  I did the one for "Depression and Digestion"... I think that's what it was called - but it's from the same series - same lady with the one nostril in, one nostril out breathing in the beginning - lol

Anyway... I wondered - how do you log this - or DO you log this within the fitness category? I mean, it was a kind of work-out. Not cardio... but I felt the burn. :)

    I've been practicing yoga for about 7 years and you are absolutely right: afterwards you feel calmed, relaxed and centered. I just love it!

I just moved to Durham two weeks ago and decided not to join a gym because my apartment complex has a great fitness facility on site. I've been winging it with my yoga, just striking a few poses in the morning and again before bed. I never thought to check Netflix for workout videos ... go figure!

Thanks for sharing your positive yoga experience. I'll be Netflix-ing my evening yoga session tonight!

    My brother told me that Netflix had streaming yoga videos. I need to give them a try. Thank you for reminding me.
