YJ is the only yoga mag I've ever read and have been a subscriber for years.

I only found it that one time at Costco! So weird...
I now have a subscription and it is definitely worth it. I really like it!

I looked for Yoga Journal at my Costco but they didn't have it! I would really like to read a copy before subscribing. Does everyone agree it's the mag to get for Yoga info?

I highly recommend subscribing!! :) SO much cheaper than buying individual issues - and it is consistently loaded with really good info.

I was thinking the same thing about subscribing to the Yoga Journal. This month there is an article on Sting and his wife and yoga in their lives. I just glanced at it at the studio but didn't get a chance to read it. I'm gonna try and find it on the newsstand before our trip to read on the plane... subscribing would be cheaper I'm sure!

I love that: yoga works you from the inside out.

That's something I'll have to remember!

Keep moving forward!

What a wonderful post, Amy. Thanks for sharing your experience. I have also heard it described as "healing your body from the inside out." So often we look at the symptom of extra weight, aches and pains, etc. I love that yoga "treats" my entire being, especially with the element of a Holy practice to treat my soul/spirit as well.

Jumping in here on an old thread but this has been my experience too...

I started practicing yoga in last May after my doctor (at a routine checkup) asked me what I was doing for myself these days. I sat there, not being able to think of a single thing I liked to do for myself. It was the eye-opening moment for me that made me realize I had put myself on the back burner for far too long.
I had wanted to try yoga at a studio (I had done a little at home with DVD's) and made myself go out of my comfort zone and try it. I LOVED it! Everyone was so encouraging and it was non-competitive (of course!).
Doing yoga regularly got me much more in touch with myself on all levels and I realized now I had some depression going on for the past few years. I am completely out of that now, thankfully.
After practicing yoga for a while, I began making other healthy lifestyle changes. I decided to add running to my routine and did the Couch to 5k program this summer and finished it! Just finishing that was mentally a big deal for me. I joined Weight Watchers and have lost nearly 20 pounds now with a bit more to go. But yoga was the catalyst that brought those positive changes into my life, that got me understanding myself.
The owner of the yoga studio where I go told me "Yoga works you from the inside out". She is so right. It certainly has worked me from the inside out. I started out hoping to gain back some flexibility and strength and got that but so much more. I am so much more in tune with my body and spirit now.

Sometimes when I snap out of it, I snap back in after a while. It is definitely a daily struggle of putting one foot in front of the other, and lately I've been walking backward, too. I'm praying for progress for both of us (and the rest of our team)! Blessings, Liz

Very interesting about what you said about feeding your real needs. I've been stuck in negavity for a few weeks. Finances, weight, etc. This is getting me scared that I'll never snap out of it. Some pains I'm feeling again. It seems I can't get focused on the word long enough to feed my spirit.

Yoga helped me to lose 25 pounds several years ago. When I say that to people, I have to quickly add: "It is not about the calories burned." Yoga helped me to lose weight by keeping me in touch with my body and spirit. To feed myself in the ways I needed feeding, not just with food. When I am not practicing regularly, the weight creeps back up, even though I have lots of other calorie burn going on. Other aches an pains also return, which slows me down physically.

How has yoga helped you in your weight loss journey?
