I just tried yoga for the first time this Tuesday and absolutely loved it! I took "yoga basics", but I think it was a hatha yoga class (not quite sure). Those of you that have been doing yoga for a while - Have you noticed an improvement in your ability to breathe?
My daughter's squad coach does some pilates with the group on a Saturday morning (and mums too). My abs are my biggest weakness (always have been, used to have to do physio as a child for it) and I find it hard, but worth it. I have some pilates DVDs, but I prefer the yoga ones (mainly because I can do them).
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle

I've never actually discussed exercise for asthmatics with my doctor (though I know I definitely should). I was thinking about taking up yoga again and was wondering, what works best for you? I used to take a yoga class and LOVED it. The deep breathing exercises, especially, helped me to breathe easier, and I found I wasn't reaching for the inhaler quite so much.
