Re: Yoga - Active Topic!

Hey @Red21,

 

I've joined the gym so doing a combo of weights, yoga, tai chi and meditation. My first yoga class had me so sore the next day and I had to miss that days class lol! My legs need strengthening!!

 

I do love it though, and find that I have heaps more energy and motivation after doing weights or attending a class. The days I don't go, energy levels drop as does my mood. So I see the benefits for sure! A yoga retreat would be awesome - once I'm fit enough!

I have long wanted to try yoga. While I'm only engaged in fitness. Can have some tips for beginners?

Absolutely @taokat

energy levels increase with yoga 

i have not done for two weeks due to family needs 

as we are aware do dampen passions and our own needs

yet only for the necessities 

priorities are just that

yet

lat night the best class 

FEELING

what is real for me

listening to my body

JOY of the cellular memory partying inside

my mind alive with thoughts of health 

 

and o be short here today as my children go to shared care, 

first time in 3 weeks 

and i promise my whole that i will 

prioritise a cleanse of my whole self and house 

lol

hi beautiful 

tell me 

do u go to a yoga class 

or r u a home practitioner 

 

different tips 

yet 

lets be real 

the best yoga 

is the last yoga u did

 

mine often is the in breathe 

and the out

 

the receiving and the giving

 

the comings and the goings

especially the goings

the letting go 

of what is for others 

and the coming closer to what is real 

for me

 

it is an individual practice 

yet we are same 

 

our breathe is our fuel 

for our mind body and soul 

 

breathe in love and let go of everything else 

thats my best practice 

 

so now off to yoga 

to do just that and also 

to acknowledge the journey taken to the moment that we acknowledge as yoga

knowing that we are perpetual in yoga

yet 

priority to the time to acknowledge 

accept 

and let go 

moment by moment 

breathe by breathe

step by step 

day by day 

 

yoga

union

harmony 

 

being the love that you are x

It's been a week for me too now. It was getting to me, my body was really craving some exercise, so I did a weights workout at the gym. Yoga class times have clashed, but this week my Dad's home again from having a stent put in his aorta, and my daughter is feeling well again too.

 

I'm taking time for me again this week!

It's funny @Red21, I used to feel so guilty about taking me time, and now I really notice it when I haven't!

 

It's great to hear you're Yoga'ing again! Smiley Happy
