Does anyone do Yoga?

I've always incorporated yoga into my workouts, especially the stretching and flexibily poses.
More recently, however, I began taking Bikram or "hot" yoga. I became addicted to it right away. I have not been in a couple of weeks due to a diabetes setback that caused my numbers to rise to an uncontrolled level. I do plan to return, though once I'm stable again.
It's a 90 minute class, so I'll have to ease back into it.

Does anyone do Yoga?

I do yoga once a week, also pilates, and stretching and toning:  3 classes at the local senior center.  I like the variety, and also I try to get in an hour walk once or twice a week.   The stetching involved in yoga is great to keep you flexible, and probably helps with getting insulin into your muscles, too.

Yes I have heard it was great for that too!
I do my yoga classes twice a week but I wasn't able to go this week and I'm missing it!

I also walk almost every day, pushing a stroller and holding onto two dogs. ha!

Does anyone do Yoga?

Hi KM.........I also do Yoga from a DVD. So, I do yoga every other day, and my tai bo DVD the other days. I walk at least an hour everyday and I hop on my ststionary bike for at least 25 minutes of really fast pedaling after every major meal.
I am also doing the P90X workout twice a week plus I have a home gym for weights. I used to do a Boot camp kick boxing workout but the class was canceled. I tried Zumba but since I sweat really bad and the class was always crowded I just dance at home.
I also surf and run after my 6 yr old Autistic grandson that we adopted. I will be 57 in December and I try to exercise on a regular basis because it helps with my blood glucose numbers.

I think I got my Yoga DVD from Giam .com.
Good Luck.................See ya...............Big Red....................Peace

Re: Does anyone do Yoga?

Yoga is an exercise and meditation routine that I enjoy when traveling. When I was traveling every weekend to visit my aging parents, I brought my yoga kit with me. I was there to support them while my mom was going through a health issue and yoga was a wonderful outlet for me to clear my mind and re-charge my myself in a quiet manner.
