Prevention has this flat belly yoga dvd out and in a moment of weakness I ordered it. LOL It arrived and I've yet to actually do it...so I put it on top of the dvr as a reminder for this morning but I had a rough night, my lower back was bothering me since yesterday and I'm not even sure why. I knew I should have gone to the chiropractor sometime this week but I just kept blowing it off. Anyway, the point to my ramble was here is another day I don't think I'll be doing it...but I am going to get on the mat .. even if it's to just loosen things up a bit. :) Yoga as medicine. I love it!

Thanks...I was going to see if I have enough time to stop by the chiropractor this morning. I have a long day on my feet ahead of me, but I am weighing out whether I want to go today or go on Monday when I can schedule a massage afterwards...I may benefit from that as well.

So sorry to hear about your back, maybe some light moves and some ice (not at the same time :) ) may help. I actually came to yoga because of my back and started with a dvd that was yoga for the back. I also have found a home tense machine very helpful to loosen those muscles when nothing else didn't help. My chiropracter introduced me to it and would use the medical grade one after he did his adjustments. Hope you feel better soon.

I watched a movie called "Breath of the Gods" on Netflix, it is the origin of yoga. I wanted to get it in before it left Netflix later this month. I found it to be very interesting.

tealady6/15/2017 8:08:21 AM

I'll have to check it out. Oh gosh...I'd have a hard time saying good bye to Netflix. It spoiled me...nothing like a netflix binge from time to time.

Title : I Did Yoga Every Morning For 2 Weeks—Here’s What I Learned
Link : http://www.prevention.com/fitness/i-did-yoga-every-morning-for-2-weeks/slide/1
Description : The author decides to cultivate a 2 week practice and talks about her results...interesting :)

So....how does yoga help you lose weight. If you are in a better place, if you are feeling more positive and calm, if you feel more in control and balanced then you will want to eat healthier. It just becomes a natural progression. Imagine cultivating a practice that will make you want to eat better. Now, that's motivating. :)

The last two days have been great....it never ceases to amaze me how much I get out of practicing...My biggest issue is that every time I find a groove something messes me up. Shaylynn....how's the book?

Shaylynn 5/17/2017 6:32:22 PM

I bought a new yoga book yesterday - I can't wait to have time to get into it!

tealady5/30/2017 9:11:07 AM

Shaylynn I'd love to hear more about your book. I have a few I've picked up over the years.

Shaylynn 5/7/2017 2:30:25 PM

Tight muscles again today it is the gastrocnemius muscle that is knotted near the back of my knee. Luckily, going into my yoga room and stretching and trigger point message alieveates the uncomfortableness. My yoga room is so sunny and nice this time of year all I need to do to finish it is to seal the moldings that go along the floor and wall. The varnish has to be used outside.

Shaylynn 5/6/2017 7:55:53 AM

Yoga clas yesterday was excellent. Each week she choosed a focus and this week was shoulders and upper back. All the moves felt really good - I hadn't realized how tight my muscles were. We did a lot of chair pose and horse so my gluteus and thighs got quite a work-out. I was a bit sore when I woke up this morning but a shower and a little moving around mand I am fine. I will get on the mat for a few minutes then get ready to go out to breakfast with my hubby. We have done Saturday morning breakfast for 19 years and we rarely miss!

Shaylynn 5/4/2017 2:57:49 PM

I do yoga every day it has been so helpful. I have been doing it now for 3 years. Once a week I go to a free class at the library when my work schedule allows. Even now I cannot do many of the CDs the routines are just too stressful. Here is the name of a CD that is just right for me. "Essential Flow Yoga" it is by bodywisdom-media. I have ordered copies from the internet for just a couple of dollars and given it to friends and family who want to start doing yoga. I started with the "quieting energy" routine. I do a similar routine every night before bed! I think you will like it.

tealady5/30/2017 9:13:27 AM

For awhile I was doing yoga every day and I just loved it. Recently, I've found myself in such a negative place and I'm just not sure how to shake it. I know getting back to a daily practice is just the thing. sighs...my to do list has just become too long. Perhaps it's time I reevaluate that list.

Arezou765/4/2017 4:12:23 PM

Dear Shaylynn , thank you very much. very helpful.

Arezou76 5/1/2017 2:17:30 PM

Tonight I asked my mother to join a yoga class together. I pleased her. We both are very tempered :D and some how depressed. I am hopeful that this yoga class will give us balance and peace of mind. I have some DVD of Yoga. but I cannot follow them, maybe I am lazy or it s difficult for me. I wish one day I do yoga without trainer, alone or in team with confidence. I always stare at people doing yoga in DVD or TV and I wish I was them!

Arezou765/4/2017 4:16:31 PM

Thanks so much for reply. now I feel better that it's normal if I can't follow a DVD. I will prepare this CD . and thank you very much for information. God Blesses you.
