We can certainly be remote yoga buddies- I can count on you to come here and tell me how the class was.

My class was good- a challenge for me because I am used to always exercising at a fast pace to relax rather than slowing down to relax. I like that new challenge for my brain- I will be doing it again.

Rachel, too bad we don't live closer, I could use a yoga buddy! I tried to get to a class tonight and (as usual) the timing didn't work out. That would happen less often if I knew someone was counting on me to be there with them.

Interesting study, and maybe the deciding factor for me in moving yoga from the "should do this" column to "doing this".

Now I need to figure out which type of yoga to do. The Y I belong to offers no less than 5 different types: Fitness Yoga, Power Yoga, Vini Yoga, Gentle Hatha Yoga, and plain old vanilla Yoga! Anyone have any idea what the differences are?

Update: Found this on the YMCA web site...

Hatha Yoga: One of the main branches of yoga. The focus in this class is increasing strength and flexibility through the practices of different postures. This is the best for first time yoga students.

Power Yoga: Re-energize yourself during the lunch hour with a vigorous, continuously flowing form of yoga that increases
your bodies’ daily performance through a series of connecting postures.

Vini Yoga: A traditional style of yoga. This class will include physical postures with the aim to increase or maintain both
strength and flexibility. Relaxation exercise is incorporated to encourage deep relaxation.

Wow! I've never really tried yoga- my gym has a yoga class tonight at 8- perhaps there was a reason you posted this info for me to read today...

Wouldn't it be great to have a copy of the mindfulness questionnaire to see how we score?

I just got this today as part of a bulletin from Dr. Weill's website--and because eating only when hungry is the #1 habit of Dr. Gould's program, I think you might find this research interesting. Though it seems to be about yoga, it really has to do with paying attention to our hunger (and being present, in general).

"It's not the poses or the stretching that works - instead, the mindfulness associated with yoga seems to promote weight loss and prevent gains. Four years ago, researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle found that regular yoga practice may help prevent middle-aged spread in normal weight people and spur losses in the overweight. Now the same team has found that mindfulness, not just physical activity, makes the difference. Mindful eating means knowing why you eat and stopping when you're full (as opposed to eating when you're not hungry, when you're stressed and in response to cues such as advertising). The new study included more than 300 individuals from local yoga studios and other venues who reported on their activities, in and out of yoga class. All the participants filled out a Mindful Eating Questionnaire. Those with the highest mindfulness scores had lower BMIs (body mass index) than those with lower scores. The study was published in the August, 2009, issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association."
