    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 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.

    Just had the best home session ever!

    Doing yoga before bed is literally the most relaxing thing. I am so into it! I love how it strengthens and tones my body while relaxing me at the same time. Nothing like it!

    Namaste! I go to yoga regularly.

    The exercises are essential for my body. Strength creates a holistic remedy to time and circumstances.

    Yoga was the domain of my grandmother

    for decades, up to a few years before she passed away. This hobby was something I always admired about her, and I could do worse than follow in her footsteps in this respect. I have always had an interest in the exercise and have even practiced a few moves and positions now and...

    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.

    Pain In Life

    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.

    I Would Never Consider Doing Yoga a Few Years Back

    I find it quite funny to look back at my less-open self and have a chuckle. A number of years ago I would never even have considered doing yoga. I did martial arts and weight lifting and yoga was just something goofy middle-aged women did. Well, here I am, 36 year old male, and...

    Yoga has eased my back pain,

    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.

    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 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...

    As you other yogi's know,

    it's all about breathing. It took me a while to realize this. The poses open and center me, and keep me fit but the benefit lies within the power of breathing. We can subject ourselves to a lot pain and stress but if we're breathing, we can always handle more than we think we...
