    Yoga? Probably going to turn into NSFW :)

    So I've been skeptical for awhile about Yoga and I tried it last night and holy marshmellows, it kicked my ass.

    We did this last night and uh I didn't think I was going to be able to get out of the pose.



    Anyone else ever try Yoga?? What are your thoughts.

    I'm not sure if I want to keep going. .Everyone there was super hardcore with their mats and clothes and I'm just rocking sweatpants and refused to take my socks off. Haha.


    Let the dirty comments begin I know they're out there haha.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Be careful, there was an episode of "Dead Like Me" in which a yoga instructor broke his neck and died by doing that pose!

    I've tried yoga a few times. It was fine as far as exercise goes, but I didn't feel any kind of meditative or spiritual inspiration as a result.

    I do like to sit in the lotus position a lot--not for yoga-related reasons, but just because it's comfortable.

    I am sure some of the positions would likely kick my ass...I am pretty damn limber so the top one wouldnt bother me much. I am with you Jenna..the Lotus is super comfy and find myself sitting like that a lot although I usually sit with one leg crossed in front of me on the chair and the other on top crossed. After knee surgery it took awhile to do that again comfortably.

    Yoga is one thing I would like to try...now that I am out of the academy (almost) I have tons of things I want to do when work quiets down into a semblance of a schedule.

    I tried the Yoga section of P90X and I had to quit. I couldn't get into those positions. I found out I was not at all limber and I did not have very good balance. Also, my legs are crooked. All the postions put a huge strain on my body.

    A Graveling jumped on his legs and helped him break his neck, so that's hardly fair.

    Autumn, there's a show on FitTV called 'Namaste Yoga' that is pretty decent, you just follow along with what they do and can rock sweats all you want. Namaste TV Show - Merging stunning photography and beautifully hypnotic music with authentic Hatha Vinyasa practise
