    For some of the comments regarding balance problems or limited movement due to arthritis, you might ask at the YMCA if they have a seniors' yoga class. I saw a lady today who was using it as therapy after a stroke. They modify the poses and use props, including chairs to sit and still be fit. - 6/4/2014 5:17:15 AM

    I am thinking that the SP articles are all recycled. No matter whether recipes, healthy eating or exercise. Not always aware of it at first but scrolling down through comments will often show them to be from 2009. I find this disappointing and often delete my daily SP emails without opening. - 9/25/2013 6:51:17 PM

    I fell over the first time I went to Yoga...I really like it but don't have the money to attend a class..wish there was a group that could get together to just follow a video or something in my area? - 9/25/2013 4:53:40 PM
  • Yoga has saved my life in more ways then one. As I was reading this article, I had to remind myself that this is a "general" guideline article so as not to cop an attitude toward the author. - 9/25/2013 7:58:38 AM

    I don't like the author's tone. There's nothing wrong with being "a Birkenstock-wearing vegetarian. - 9/25/2013 5:18:15 AM

    I did yoga for a month. I enjoyed it but it didn't seem like it was helping to tone my body. Did I not give it enough time? Should I go back? - 9/9/2013 8:24:49 AM
  • I disagree that it isn't a good source for strength training. Because the routine I'm currently doing (Vinyasa style) requires me to hold my own weight, plus planks and pushups I am definitely seeing an improved strength and toning to my arms, chest and even legs. - 8/28/2013 1:33:03 PM

    I Agree some form of yoga def gets the heart going and the sweat pouring. My body feels heated up! One teacher I really like is Sadie Nardini. She has a style which she calls "core strength vinyasa". You can find her on youtube and all the routine I've tried so far have been really great! - 3/18/2013 11:04:48 AM
  • I have never tried yoga, so I think I will add it to some of my work outs during the week. - 1/20/2013 12:54:30 PM

    I'm thinking about adding Yoga this year as my company is offering in house Yoga classes for 6 weeks. Since I am new to it, I hope that it will be something that I can enjoy. - 1/1/2013 10:52:47 AM
