So yet again I'm getting back to using SparkPeople.com. I am 42 and am a yo-yo exerciser. But am back on the wagon with exercising the right way with both cardio and strength training. I will be doing the Oxycise in the car when I head off to my part time job.

I know I've gone up with the weight and have lost the bit of toning I'd managed to get. It's amazing how the abs get used with the deep breathing! Yesterday on my way home I did Oxycise. Wow, really felt the abs working. It feels good to be back on track.

Thanks goes out to Tricia for the welcome goodie!

Hi I am Kimmy. I have been on sparks for four years, oh my it seems like just yesterday..hehehe I am in and out as my time provides..I am joining this team to be on a team with Rosalieesther.. Yap thatís my ticket. Rosa is an inspiring leader and gives from her heart..I havenít practiced LifeLift, BodyFlex, Oxycise!, Kundalini Breath of Fire, Pranayma, Kabalabahti or any other breathing exercise program, so I do not meet the suggested common interests. It is never to late to try something new..Soo I have chosen to learn Kundalini Yoga. It looks like something I would enjoy and receive wonderful benefits. I am looking at purchasing one of these dvds Kundalini Yoga for Beginners and Beyond w/Ana Brett & Ravi Singh, their client list includes Madonna, look how healthy she is..I know she does more than this to keep herself fit..But Iím just sayin..Or Kundalini Yoga to Detox and Destress with Maya Fiennes..Does anyone have any suggestions for this ol gal. Looking forward to sharing our healthy accomplishments. May we share our love for life today with joy in our heartsÖSHINE ON!! emoticon

Welcome to the team. I do a lot of Leslie walking myself, but I get my breathing in most of the time when I am in the car. I do Oxycise in the car and Body Flex at home.

We are always glad to have a new member! SO happy that you found us!

Hi everybody!
I just joined this team and have been Sparking regularly for about 7 months.
I now am currently eating intuitively as a form of maintenance (maybe another few pounds and inches??) and my exercise is Leslie Sansone, line dancing and yardwork.
I have been blogging regularly since October 1.
Yesterday I had an ah-ha moment about the importance of air...breathing.
That led me to blog about it today......."Air, the essential nutrient". Please note that the content of the blog was entered before I found this team. My realization brought me to this team,not the other way around.
I am really excited by what I read here. I am a bit of a team hopper and have accumulated quite a few teams. But I can already tell that this is going to be an important one for me!
Looking forward to finding out more about the program that you have specified!

Hi team,

time for a proper intro! emoticon
My name is Val, I'm a 36 y.o. stay-at-home-mom of 2 kids (and 2 cats emoticon ) and honestly never heard of Oxycise or the like breathing exercises but I do Kundalini yoga and 'Breath of fire' is a common breathing technique. (As Rosa knows emoticon )

I just recently started Kundalini again and love how it makes me feel, particularly the 'Breath of fire' energizes me and as I found out just a few days ago, apparently is also supposed to help with weight loss. (Which I don't really have anything to lose other than 2-3 vanity pounds, but I'd take it if BOF makes them vanish! LOL)

So that's pretty much it about me in a nutshell! I've tried finding more info and possibly videos to see how the other breathing excis work, but wasn't successful, so I guess I'll just stick to my Kundalini breathing, if you'll still have me here!? emoticon

Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

Hi Elvie! There is a thread on the main page that says tracking body flex and someone posted that 15 minutes would burn 875???? I am not sure if that is correct or not, but if you cut it in half, you would probably be safe. If you do it right, it is quite a workout.

Glad that you are with us! Keep us informed in how you are doing. We love to hear from our team mates!

Hi I'm Elvie and I am 44 years. I first discovered deep breathing 13 years ago with Body Flex. The breathing didn't quite gel with me. I did lose inches. I tried Oxycise on and off and I think I lost inches not sure. I am going to try Oxycise with the daughter and see how that goes. HOw many calories do we burn doing Oxycise does anyone know? Thank you. emoticon

Hi! My name is Paulette. I am 62 years old and I know I have a problem with shallow breathing . I don't know anything about Oxycise, but it sounded like something I needed when I was looking at books a few days ago at our Senior rummage sale.I bought the book and just started reading it yesterday. Hope it will help me.

Welcome Julie! Using oxygen as part of my exercise routine makes a difference to me. If you have used Oxycise in the past and it worked for you it will again. Welcome to our team!

Hello,

My name is Julie. I'm 56 years old, an elementary school teacher and a shepherd with a small flock of sheep raised for hand spinners. Recently I had to take a FMLA due to a complete relapse of my health. I had terrible vertigo and migraine headaches. Alas when I didn't return to my job within a month, they fired me.

I used to do Oxycise regularly about 10 years ago. I had been fairly fit and I loved how I felt. My physical therapist is working with muscles in my neck down through my shoulder and arm that have become very weak and painful. She said to me a week or so back, "you're not breathing enough, you need to take cleansing breaths through out the day and work on your posture. Wow! I remembered Oxycise. I know this will help me. I don't know anything about Life Lift or Body Flex. I am planning to look into them and also get a new Oxycise DVD. Along with walking I am determined to make a come back.
