I joined SparkPeople last November but dropped out after December. I had some health problems in January, had to spend a little time recovering and readjusting - but now I'm more fully on board living a healthful lifestyle than ever before. Which is kind of exciting.
I am such a beginner when it comes to yoga. I think I've begun yoga a good 50 times in my life. But this time it seems to be sticking. I don't go to a class, I just use the Barbara Benagh Yoga for Stress Relief DVD - which I really like. She's very reassuring and here instructions are excellent. I will vary this in future when I have more of a foundation - as I have masses of DVDs. I've always been a yoga fan in spirit - just never in actuality - but that is finally changing.
The shift this time which is working for me is that I'm listening to my body more. I ignored it for such a long time at my peril - so now I give it the attention it has been asking for. Plus from somewhere I have found some faith that this will work - that it's OK if I can't do things straight off - that I'm doing what I can for now and that's the way towards improvement.
On my fitness campaign this time around I started with Pilates and I wasn't really bothering with the yoga - but then I tried a couple of DVD sessions and I'm hooked.
Over the years my posture has become really bad and I have been very aware in recent times of how stiff I have become - so a gentle build up with Pilates and Yoga is perfect for me. I really need to get in to alignment before I start asking more of my body.
Just wanted to say hi - I think this is the Team I'll be dropping in to most often for inspiration.
Please feel free to friend me or drop me a line.
