    I Started

    In my early twenties... It was a Friday Morning, eight thirty class... Being an Introvert, I figured I am tailor made for yoga...the same way a sailor feels about the high seas, or a pilot over the evening sky... There are an endless amount of benefits one can accrue through...

    Today, I practiced yoga

    for the first time in about three years and it felt SO good. I fully intend to continue doing yoga on a daily basis like I used to. The investment in my new videos was definitely worth it, and I encourage anyone and everyone to try yoga if they haven't already.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Yoga was the domain of my grandmother

    Some people say yoga is just

    for the female gender... And to be honest it is mostly females who do it!? But in terms of increasing your stability and flexibility, it is probably the best type of exercise to do :-)

    Yoga puts me and rest

    I never thought I would like yoga.

    I thought I would hurt myself or that it wasn't really exercise. A year ago, a friend at work who is a guy about the same age at me told me he was taking it and that I should join him. At the same time, I met a yoga enthusiast here on EP who also encouraged me. I can tell...

    I wish I had the time,

    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
