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.
