I've started yoga about 3 weeks ago. I found a teacher that is also a nurse. She pays attention to you. She'll say things like, "now that you feel that strech in your back do this to relieve any pain you may feel. Don't hold your breath. Remember to breathe." She will come to you and say, "Can you move that foot back/forward it'll make the move better for you." I like that. You can't get that with the tapes. I would like to get to know the moves well enough to be able to do it on my own. That is a ways out for me. I like a tape that goes through the moves slowly. Some of them go way too fast from one pose to another. I haven't found one I love yet. I do LOVE the class.
"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're COMMITTED to something, you accept NO EXCUSES; only results."
I tired of being sick and tired all the time!! Time to do something about it!!
And This Too Shall Pass.

Hi Roxanne! I really enjoy yoga! I find it relaxing. I have done a few live classes, but I don't have a lot of time to go to a gym or yoga place right now. So I mostly do DVDs. I like Sara Ivanhoe's DVDs. I also like Yoga Booty Ballet Pajama Time. It's very restful and helps you wind down at the end of the day. I know I have some other yoga DVDs too, but they are all downstairs and I'm in my jammies upstairs. So I'll try to remember to look tomorrow.
I enjoy it, but don't get to do it often as my new workout room isn't quite complete. (We're waiting for my husband's bonus next month for a TV to be able to play the videos.) :) I've tried several different ones, but I did purchased Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown and I do enjoy it. :)
I enjoy yoga. There are different types, some more strenuous than others. I'd recommend starting with a beginning yoga class or DVD. I do like the DVD's just as much as the classes. I'm more prone to do the DVD's, then head out to a class. I like a.m. yoga for beginners with Rodney Yee.
I'm thinking about trying yoga for myself and maybe my 12 year old. I'm curious what experiences anyone can share- any advice on what to look for, what to stay away from. Do yoga videos work just as well? Thanks for sharing, Roxanne
