    Been thinking about this

    I started yoga last year

    and went to a studio for a month, but then I stopped going. This year I tried to do it myself at home, but I almost never feel relaxed or refreshed. I've recently read something that said, if yoga doesn't make you feel good then it's not yoga. I really want to improve myself...

    I'm told that Yoga increases flexibility,

    which would help with Meditation because I find it is uncomfortable to 'sit'; because I'm not flexible. Any suggestions?
