Would you say a class is the way to go? Like have you gotten more out of it vs doing it on your own or anything?I just wanted to make a thread about this some days ago. I personally love yoga. I actually didn't start out liking it though. I just thought how boring and torturous it is. But after I started pushing myself to go more regularly for yoga classes, like 4 times a week, I started enjoying it more and every class made me feel more calm and clear minded afterwards.
I think it is one way of disciplining myself because I can get lazy with stretching if I'm doing it myself. If I go to a class the yoga masters there will correct my postures and will motivate you to hold your stretches and at the end of the session after the relaxation and breathing exercises it is very rewarding.Would you say a class is the way to go?

hahaha that is hilarious Nikson! Go get a new one, I'd say it's worth the money. Or you and your husband could practise 'yoga' together on that mat.:tongue:I'm just the same. About a year ago I was in a really good routine of doing yoga, but at night to help me sleep rather than in the morning. I do miss the way it made me feel. What happened was my husband used my yoga mat for exercising on and it ended up...shall we say, less than fragrant?! I really should either clean it up or get a new mat though because that's a silly reason to give up something so great!
yeah I'm pretty much the same. fortunately, my schedule is rather flexible so I'm able to go for classes in the afternoon too =) I find that going for a class at night helps me sleep better too.i wish I had time to work out in the morning. I just can't get out of bed any earlier than I absolutely have to. It must be my 'P' function shining through.
I love yoga, though. There's nothing like 60 minutes of yoga with a great instructor, and a sweet little shavasana close-out.
I see what you did there!yeah I'm pretty much the same. fortunately, my schedule is rather flexible so I'm able to go for classes in the afternoon too =) I find that going for a class at night helps me sleep better too.
Get 365 Yoga by Julie Rappaport : )I'd love to start doing it... I sometimes do a couple of poses to help my back problems but not very often. I think I'd need a book or something to get me started
