On no, the studio where I go to calls it Zen Yoga, but its basically just restorative. No micture of QiGong and TaiChi. But would be cool if there is.

We still do some meditation and breathing exercises.

Its more than just vanity.
Its not about being slim, its about being healthy.

LORAC67 having a class with an experiencedand certified instructor is the best. Wish you find that kind of instructor in the class you are going to start. Maybe it is Hatha Yoga?

EIRAVANORA restorative yoga is good too, listen to your body!.
One question:
Zen Yoga like it is describe by Aaron Hooves:Zen Yoga: A Path To Enlightenment Through Breathing, Movement and Meditation?

I alternate between Hatha and Bikram. I always find it easier to do the poses in a heated room. But they also can be quite suffocating, especially if theres a lot of people in the class.

Thank you all for the advice, I will keep on going. Probably throw in some zen yoga in my schedule as well.

Thank you so much I am going to try to get the schedule for the classes they offer and see what appeals to me. It will have to be after work, since I live about 35 minutes away not driving back in. :)
He said no pilates but yoga and belly dancing is offered along with other classes. Nothing this week but classes will start back up next week and they have the schedules through January.
Being a Army civilian the classes are free! They have zumba but it might be to rough for me with my back.
Thank you again

Lora - I think you may very much like the classes! Post and let us know how it goes once you've started!
Be aware that there are HUGE differences betweeen types of yoga and between teachers. I hope you'll love the classes you'll visit. If not, do keep looking for other teachers!
My suggestion is to always ask if you can do a 'try-out' lesson before you subscribe to an entire course of yoga. Good luck!

Keep it simple.

I really do not know what kind I am doing or should be doing.
I have never been to a class in my life so this will be interesting LOL.
I am going to call this week and after we get settled and probably after Christmas I will start going.
Thank you for the help and it you can think of anything please let me know.
I have been doing yoga since the early to mid 90's but it has been off and on and always with TV or DVD's. So I am probably not doing it correctly at all.

Eiravanora, what kind of yoga are you doing?

I think you may try to continue to go to the classes but just be gentle with yourself. Skip poses that are asking too much of you now or do a gentle, modified version until your body is in order again. Take it slow. Patience is a much valued quality in yoga! :)

I have been doing some at the house but I think I may go after work on the base I heard they offer some classes. So I am really hoping they do I am so happy I have never been to an actual class.

Give yourself at least a day in between classes for a couple weeks. Also in class, focus on your breath. It always helps me.

Due to some crazy change in my daily schedule, I have been missing my yoga classes for about 3 months. Practicing at home is nearly impossible due to space constraint. But now I'm back and I just went for my first comeback class. I am now feeling the aches, and it seems worse than when I did yoga for the very first time. Should I simply carry on doing classes regularly or should I wait until the aches are gone before starting again?

Its more than just vanity.
