Best Website for the challenged yogi,

And by "challenged" I mean, challenged by

1. Physical Condition
2. Time Constraints
3. Money Constraints
4. Age
5. The General Feeling of Wanting Something from Yoga that you used to get from yoga the way it had been 20 years ago

namasteph.com/

Many of other yoga blogs/sites speak down to me because I am not in yoga teacher training, etc., for all my interest. Or, if they semi-seriously satirize yoga, they don't understand MY interpretation of their site as if it were written by Consumer Reports and not the well-removed-from-desperation jokesters they are ... !

Does anyone know of a good website for yoga gatherings? I'd like to start or join a yoga-club of sorts that meets once a week and does yoga outside to greet the sun and the week with healthy meditation and a great workout. Unfortunately I'm in the dark about this, and I don't quite trust Craigslist. I would join a gym or something but my funds are very low.

Guilt eater no more! Thin me, here I come.

Rewards to look forward to:
138 (-10lbs) - Something new for my vanity!
128 (-20lbs) - A new outfit/bathing suit!
120 (-28lbs) - A vacation!

yogajournal.com has this build your own sequence program that is pretty great once you figure out how to use it and if you already have an idea of which postures you'd like, just searching around in there you'll see tons of asanas that are super esoteric. I really like it.

Sadie Nardini has a great YouTube Channel:

http://www.youtube.com/user/sadienardini
?blend=6&ob=4

She has over 100 videos, ranging from answering yoga questions, to teaching alignment, to several you can link into a series to have a 30 minute at home workout. I really like her a lot. I posted about her DVDs on the videos thread. I'm not advertising for her, just really enjoying her lately for an awesome yoga workout, that acknoweldges body-mind-soul.

Here's a link to fitness magazine. They have free videos of poses. In case your not ready to make a committment to purchase. Try it out first and see what you think. I think it's alright.

I get 20 min. Yoga Sessions from YogaDownload.com on iTunes podcasrs. It included audio and pdf printouts. I'm delighted to see other yoga resources thru iTunes. Yoga journal was the only other site I knew about.

Oh, and if you have cable on demand (ours is through Comcast) you may have a 20 minute yoga. Ours is from a program that either 4 or 5 am if we had to watch the broadcast.

Which one was the meditation site?

I'm on hold for doing yoga because of a back injury. I'm sure yoga will help, but I'm still too much a novice to be sure I'm doing it right and I don't want to cause more problems. Unfortunately, I can't afford yoga classes and therapy sessions at the same time. But meditation I can do without classes, I'm sure.
emoticon
Hmm... just thought...I bet I could study the printouts and do "mental yoga." I've learned other things that way.
(sorry for the babbling)

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry.
