    Negative Self-image

    I had very negative self-image and problems relaxing. When my mother had a doctor’s appointment I had gone with her so I can translate, because she has very bad English. At the appointment the doctor was nice enough to give me free consultation. She had advised me to do Yoga. I...

    I'd love to be able to do something like yoga

    regularly. Always fancied the idea of being more flex able and less stressed.

    It's Definitely Something I Want To Do Regularly!

    I downloaded a video for beginners and gave it a try, it was pretty effective and felt my muscles really stretching.... I was a bit skeptical about it at first but really liked it! .... too bad i can't afford to get in a class... hopefully i am doing the poses right :P

    Total Noob.

    Yoga feels good. Really good. I've noticed that if I get really into the poses I've learned before bed, I wake up feeling ok in the morning. Usually when I wake up I'm immediately crushed by feelings of self-loathing. I don't know why, it's like a sneak attack from my ego...

    I really love the idea of doing yoga,

    being at one with myself, and being more healthy. I bought one of those yoga apps so that I could do it in my room on my mat. I just started up again tonight and I noticed that it hurts my wrists doing the downward facing dog pose and I have horrible balance in some of the poses...

    Getting Back to It...

    I really need to - I have done Yoga on and off for many years.  I find that I allow my life to be so busy that I can't take time for myself and my own needs and health. I really need to make that time.  And yoga has always made me feel so grounded, calm and flexible...

    I Feel Like Myself When I'm Doing Yoga

    When I do yoga it's a guaranteed hour of solitude, I do it in my house alone and I love it. Often it's hard for me to carve time out of my day solely for myself, but I want to get better at that. When I am doing yoga I feel healthy, beautiful, wise and centered.
