I actually had been doing yoga regularly for well over 5 years--until about 5 weeks ago; now I do yoga from time to time, and I do a live pilates mat class once every few days.
And, I will be in a live yoga class again for the first time in a year and a half. A much milder, more forgiving style. The teacher comes very highly recommended--by me. Because I had her for pilates.
The last yoga teacher I ever had whose pilates class gave me an indication of how they'd teach yoga (mild, of course) was about 5 years ago. Would I steer me wrong?!?
As for GENKI's post, in home self-practice, I'd lost my bearings and fell hard on my left lower leg out of crow [with a loud !thud!] several weeks ago ... getting so many episodes all dizzy and disoriented like that in yoga .. my balance has started really to go .. but my problem is general metabolic breakdown, now ...
Incidentally,FYI, I used to lead this team, and changed its name from Twisted Guru Yoga and Wellness to Twisted Guru Yoga and Pilates.
Pilates in the house!!!!!!
