    I go to yoga every day of the week.

    I think everyone should do hot yoga. It feels so great to sweat out any toxins in the body and there are plenty of other health/appearance benifits

    I tried yoga nidra last night

    after a flow class. What an amazingly, zenful experience. Simplicity can be a beautiful and enlightening.

    Does anyone get weird feelings in their arms

    and legs once they do yoga? The feeling makes you feel like you HAVE to stretch? I find it annoying.

    My friend, CherishMe2 (a beautiful person in

    every sense of the word by the way :-) ) shared her story about Yoga: EP Link And it also got me thinking that my transformation story and the path towards rediscovering myself, started actually almost three years ago. As part of a renewed interest in my health and well-being...

    I wish I had the time,

    space, and energy to continue with it. It honestly changed me when I first began doing it a couple summers ago, and I regret ever stopping. I can't wait to have the space to do it again when I get an apartment hopefully soon.

    Yoga saved my life. I have severe kidney

    and bladder damage, as well as a medication resistant pain disorder and carpal tunnel from overmedication since I was a teenager. I was told point blank by a doctor that my life-expectancy had been cut in half. I also suffer from PTSD. I began practicing yoga and mindfulness...

    Sometimes I will go to a class,

    but mostly I like to be alone and quiet when I do yoga. It's a time to just breath and be silent, for me anyway.

    I only do about 7 minutes a day,

    but Good God Above! =) Yoga feels Sooooo Good!! *And, soon I hope, I'll be in a 24/7 relationship that requires me to add a few more poses to my routine... ;) Turn me into a professional, instead of a novice! ;) Hah!! =)

    I used to stretch and do yoga every day

    for about an hour. My favorite poses to do were Camel, King pigeon, and Bird of paradise. I quit a couple months ago due to several reasons and I wish I hadn't. Im trying to do yoga and contortion again. In July 2013, I was outside doing yoga when I got the call. My mom had...

    Yoga completely recharges me.

    Life can be stressful and my mind can be racing all day long. It's great to take an evening yoga class and re-center myself. The yoga poses challenge me but I try to be understanding and compassionate toward myself - such a challenge! I can't wait until my next class!!! Hehe

    I'm a newbie. I've been going to a class twice

    a week. It's great. I would like to buy a yoga mat and start practicing by myself but I'm a little nervous that I won't do certain things right. I feel better doing it in a group so for now I'll stick to that. It makes my body feel amazing afterward. Even when I don't feel like...

    Pain In Life

    An aging Zen master grew tired of his student complaining, and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. "How does it taste?" the master...

    Yoga has eased my back pain,

    strengthened my upper body, improved my posture, flattened my stomach, strengthened my core, increased my flexibility, balance and coordination. I love it. I use a block for side angle poses and any that I can't easily touch my hand to the ground. I still can't do the crow...

    I have been practicing yoga off

    and on for about 12 years. I know very well that I can do it by myself at home, anytime I want. And sometimes I do. . But I really prefer the interaction and the atmosphere of a class, with an instructor who provides guidance, lights candles, etc. And I have found a decent yoga...

    Yoga puts me and rest

    and even helps me sleep at night if I do it before i go to bed. It also makes me feel taller, being 5'3" and all.

    One breathe. I start with one breath

    and I am taken away. So present that it's almost not real. Movement surges from within and I follow, trusting, in sync with all that I am. I always come out a little changed, a little better, a little happier, a little more free. It just takes one breath.

    I have been practicing yoga

    for two years now. I regularly practice Bikram & Aerial Yoga. It puts me at ease and helps clear my mind. Aside from the mental health benefits, yoga is amazing for the body. Yoga is my anchor.

    Just came back from Ubud,

    5 days of doing 3 hours of practice each day. So wonderful meeting experienced instructors and trying out new postures. Most of all, practicing in the natural state (not in air conditioned or heated studios), really brings ones spiritual connection to a higher level...

    I do yoga at work before I start (I work in a

    hospital). The weather is lovely so I did it outside in the courtyard. The hospital is 5 stories high and all I could see up was blue sky. Bliss!!!
