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.

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!

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.

Doing yoga is not easy and needs a master to guide you, but there are some yoga that is slightly easier than the regular yoga. You can get the almost same benefit of regualar exercise by easy to perform those yoga; get benefited with this Simplified Diabetes 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.
