    I am always amazed in my yoga class

    when I'm in a position and feel I'm doing it properly, but the teacher realigns me just slightly and it feels so much better...they have such a grasp on physiology...I'd love to be able to do that.

    I did 2 classes of meditation

    and loved it. They were December 22nd & December 29th. Both were 2 hours long. They were poses we've done before. We also did 1/2 hr. of zen walking. It was then followed by bhudeva meditation with the glass bowls. After all that it was 10 minutes of savasana.

    Yoga is such a perfect

    and peaceful workout. Ever since I started yoga, I've felt so much better. Every move I make just feels stronger and effortless. It's weird. I mean I almost feel like a graceful dancer just by walking. Lol. I'm much more flexible, my posture is great, I wake up with more energy...

    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 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...

    As of January 5th we've been working on our

    hips, sciatic nerve system, back & neck. As of Tuesday night we've been opening up our shoulders and I have to say that mine are still sore. Of course we had to open up our shoulders again last night. Maybe by February 9th we are going to be working on our kidneys

    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'm already somewhat experienced at yoga

    as I like to practice it at home sometimes both for relaxation and fitness. I've got some flexibility an am in pretty good shape for the most part. I'm not completely advanced however. Lately, I've been wanting to expand my practice by joining a class only I'm not sure what...

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

    I have recently read comments by people

    that they are not good at yoga. The beauty of yoga is that it is not a contest. There is no good or bad yoga. I just read this interesting blog entry that discusses being 'good' at yoga. https://blog.myfitnesspal.com/2014/07/the-unexpected-benefit-of-being-bad-at-yoga

    Yoga saved my life. I have severe kidney

    At the end when we are doing relaxation poses,

    I always think in the back of my mind "I really don't want to get up, wish I had a Delorean so I can go back in time and do 10 of these in a row"

    I will be so bold as to say yoga has saved my

    life. It keeps me fit, dramatically helps my sex life/drive as a mother of kids in their 20s and 30s, and it helps so much with stress. Yoga is my life.

    I have a private Yoga lesson each week

    and do 20 minutes of asanas each day when I get up and also when I get home from work each day between that and chanting I must say I have found real balance in my day. The next step in my journey is taking up some meditation lessons with a Buddhist monk starting late this month...

    I've found that after a divorce it's difficult

    to remember I'm not just a mom but I'm also a woman. Yoga helps with that because it keeps me in sync with my body, along with keeping me fit and strong.

    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
