I started doing yoga two years ago. Before that I didn't exercise at all. My first class seemed really hard, but at the end of class (during shavasana) I felt great. When you start, you just do what you can do and gradually, you'll be able to more and more.

I have started with 'yoga for dummies' it's a little too easy and it's quite slow.
I've also started Kundalini yoga, I feel a little weird when I've got to chant when my family are around, and they think I'm crazy. Have you started yoga?

Count me in. I love yoga, been practicing for a longggg time. So centering... can't put it into words! Currently love to practice Kundalini & occasionally attend vinyasa. One local yoga studio offers a new student special... $30 for one month, unlimited classes. Can't beat that. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I've only been to a few yoga classes in my life. Today was my third. It was a hot yoga class. Much more advanced than the level I'm at, but I just did the positions I could and relaxed for the rest. I feel amazing right now. Normally, I feel stressed, anxious even at home and I feel great. I'd like to do this on a regular basis. Hopefully, I can find one that's affordable enough to do it because I like the motivation of having a place to go.

Sometimes I wish I were someone else, but then why not just try to be the person I want to be?

Yoga is extremely effective for health of the body. The breath alone of 4 in 4 out triggers the brain to relax and go into parasympathetic mode while lessening fight or flight.

For anyone that can handle the heat, Bikram Yoga can be nice because it is *always* the same postures and order of postures... which is great for people that like things safe and predictable (once you get the hang of it). The heat is also great for reducing anxiety and stress.

But any type of yoga will provide you with some benefit if you are willing to try.

I am going to try this. I can definitely see how this can help. Yoga encourages you to clear the mind at will which is essential for anxious situations.

Unfortunately I'm too bendy for yoga and will injure myself (how ironic), but I do love pilates and yoga breathing exercises. Clearing my mind and releasing tension really does help.

I love how my mind feels after doing yoga, calm and rejuvenated. I always bring my KECHARA HEALING CHAKRAS with me. I love seeing the progression/improvement in my life.

sweetness is my weakness: yes

LOL! I swear, I think I get dislexic when Im sleep. I would have sworn for the life of me, that this thread was titled "Yoda". LOL.

When I fill my mind and my heart with thoughts of GOD and with the things he loves and desires, there really isn't much room for anything else.

I was doing yoga until school started again,. It really helps me calm down and lets me be at ease with myself. People should definitely try it. I should go back, except I lost my yoga clothes ://

When my wife left I did yoga for about a year and I thought it helped a lot. If nothing else it got me out of the house and focused on something else.

I had gone to a handful of yoga classes spaced out over several years, and was very skeptical about the practice. To me, it just seemd like glorified stretching, and therefore a waste of my time. Only recently (the last month or so) have I been able to appreciate yoga for what it's meant to be. I feel energized, empowered, tired, yet happy when I practice yoga. I'm also much more aware of my body when I am not practicing yoga. I notice I now sit up taller, I no longer slump all the time, and my every-day breathing has improved from before I started practicing regularly.

I love that yoga forces me to slow down, which is naturally pretty difficult for me. I think it will always be a great supplement to running/aerobics.
