I'm thinking of skipping my Xtend Barre workout and doing about 70 minutes of my Shiva Rea flow yoga dvd. I have not practiced real yoga for over 3 weeks and I'm starting to feel like my mind is suffering for it. I'm finding it harder to go with the flow lately especially when work issues or family distractions come up.

I think 10-15 min. a day of chakra yoga poses is just not enough for me.

Dear Monica -

I enjoy Shiva Rea and several of the teachers I've worked with have promoted the health aspects of flow style yoga.

I do feel the loss when I stop doing yoga for a while. My mind gets more easily distracted and my body feels achy. I feel so much better when I do yoga each day.

I agree that for me 15 minutes would be too short. I am barely getting my mind to quiet and my body to relax in those first 15 minutes. It's probably the middle 30 minutes that I really hit my stride. Then the wind down period is important for its own reasons.

I've been so busy recently that I haven't done yoga for the past week. Also it's gotten cold out so it's too cold to do yoga on my back porch, and I'd gotten very fond of that. Doing it inside in a bedroom just isn't quite the same. But I need to adjust smile

Time to get the bedroom cleaned up so I have a "meditation room" to enjoy! I'll work on that tomorrow.

I can feel in my shoulders that they haven't been taken care of, they're achy and sore.

I was in the waiting room at the guidance clinic yesterday for 45 minutes and did yoga there. I felt a little weird doing that in a public place, but then thought, 'screw it.'

Then in my self esteem class I committed to doing yoga every day this week. So I still have to do today (i forgot already). I can do tonite while dan and i watch something on tv.

I have been better about the yoga but have not been doing it every day. My goal is still to do some - even a little bit - every day for a week.

Then for another week.

Then we will see. smile

I'm thinking of bringing my yoga mat to the local park to be surrounded by nature while doing yoga. I'd love to go to the Sanctuary (a yoga center) but the monthly cost...

Lori - nature sounds gorgeous! I understand completely about the cost of going to a center. I think it's better to make your own sanctuary smile

Jilly - that's great that you're working it into your daily routine!

I haven't done yoga since the cold weather hit. I was so spoiled by the gorgeous outdoor porch yoga that it feels less fun to do it inside. But I have to do it anyway. I have to make inside feel just as lovely.

At my self esteem class I was talking about my yoga goal and we decided to do a few sun salutations right there. That was nice.

Dear Jilly -

That's wonderful, you're helping bring yoga into the lives of others!

I am currently doing corpse pose with my laptop on my lap smile

OK I will put the laptop down and do some owl twists! I love those smile

I would not mind if we opened with a sun salutation before each class.

Lisa, have you done Hot?bikram yoga yet? I am hesitant about hot yoga. it sounds sweaty instead of relaxing.
