Since returning from Kripalu I have a fresh, renewed appreciation for how good my body feels after doing yoga. I will aim for a daily routine.

So far I'm doing well. The weather is cooperating so I did about an hour of yoga each morning on my back porch in the sun. The birds were singing, the flowers were blooming, and I feel so much better!

My leg muscles are fairly tight right now - I can barely go back into a hurdler's stretch - so that is something I'm working on.

I did a flow practice with all types of sun salutations last Friday. Monday I did a chakra yoga practice with tons of emphasis on earth, air, heart (root, navel, heart).

Yesterday I got to practice with a client. We did seated poses to open up the hips at the very end of her workout. About 10 min. I had worked out earlier in the day so this felt really good.

I've tried practicing daily but have found that my body needs other types of exercise to stay happy, burn fat, build strength, boost endurance, and be healthy.

I've settled into 3 x a week practice and that seems to works for me.

I've done about an hour of yoga each morning and today I also did my hour class in the afternoon which I have once a week. So I think I had two hours today! My spine is already feeling much better, and I'm doing better with my hurdler's stretch. I'm always surprised how quickly yoga can help out.

Monica - I agree that I don't think of yoga as a "replacement" for running or walking or aerobic - to me they're all different components of overall health. I am very eager for my boyfriend to finish using my PS2 monitor so I can hook up my dance-dance-revolution set again and get back to my dancing! I love doing that.

I had to look that up, I didn't know its proper name! So you did a sun salutation today? What are the steps in the one you do?

What is Jffice Yoga?

Today I did an hour of yoga in the morning on my back porch. Then in the evening I went to my gentle yoga class. It was quite nice.

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.

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.

Dear Jilly -

I have not tried hot yoga, and right now I'm too busy to think about researching or looking for one to try out. Maybe in the spring!

Fans say it's like being in a lovely sauna and then gently stretching.

I don't think I've done yoga in a month. I've been insanely busy and cut out everything - but I really miss the yoga. I can feel aches and pains in all parts of my body.

Part of it is I loved my hour long routine, and it seems impossibly long to "waste" now.

I need to just do 10 minutes. I can spare 10 minutes. I need to start somewhere.

I'm about to do (embarrassed to say)... Denise Austin's yoga video. It's one with weights and I love it. It's not exactly the "peaceful way to start your morning yoga", but it's a great, short workout.

I did some yoga on vacation and it was quite soothing. It helped to release stress.

Now that I'm home, I've come down with a cold. I may just do a few simple poses later, to help relax.

Spring is coming! We had gorgeous weather today and I set up the back porch with our plants that we'd wintered in the dining area. The big pot of rosemary right by where my yoga mat goes. Then I did yoga!

I tried out the new yoga mat my boyfriend gave me - I'll post about that separately.

I did an hour of it and realized just how much I'd missed doing this. I've been doing 1-2 hours of dance a day, but yoga has its own charms.

I did a lovely hour of yoga today on the back porch, on my normal mat. It was great! I also put Juliet (our cat) on a leash for the first time so she could come out with me. She loved it! She lay in the grass in front of me and sprawled in bliss. Occasionally she'd wander to a new spot. It was idyllic smile

Back from another hiatus smile I can feel it in my spine if I haven't done yoga in a while.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day. I just finished an hour of yoga on the back porch. Sun shining, birds singing, kitty sprawled next to me.

How are you guys doing?

OK yes once again I let life distract me. Time to start afresh.

As soon as my graphics card installs I plan on going out for a short while, to get my day started. You guys know I work at night so I don't wake up until 2pm or so. Which is nice in that my "morning" yoga is in full warm sun even in the fall. I like to do my yoga on the back porch.

I started practicing Bikram yoga 5 weeks ago and have been going 4-5 times a week. I definitely takes more commitment than my yoga class at the YMCA. I used to go to the Y 2-3 times a week and if I missed a class, I didn't stress about it. I think with Bikram, you kind of have to go more often or you can't improve.

I've noticed a lot of benefits to hot yoga though and really like it. It's a real challenge.

Hi Susan smile I love how yoga is so universal and available to everyone. Sun salutation is such an awaken for the whole body. Good to hear how it helps you.

I was up at the crack of dawn to pick my son up from the airport and missed my session today. Will have to do some stretches and meditation later smile

I'm still doing 90 minute hot yoga classes and loving it! I didn't start doing it to lose weight but I've gone from a size 10 jeans to a size 6! I never thought I would evenn see size 8 again. All this happened over the holidays, BTW and I didn't do anything special with my diet.

Good to hear of your practices. Sounds like Hot Yoga suits you down to the ground Boomergal smile.

I've been doing a lot of meditation recently. My back has been niggling for a couple of weeks so been taking it easy on my usual practice - still doing gentle stretches and a lot of walking!

Sounds lovely. My session was postponed from this morning to this afternoon due to family considerations - and space! I did some gentle stretches, spinal twists and pranayama before an hour meditation.

Hope you feel better soon! Hope the yoga is helping.

I recently did the same - stretches in bed and pranayama to help with breathing and the aches and pains that the flu brings.

Do you usually have a yoga practice?

I Forgot to check in, but I think I've done yoga every day since my last post. I've really enjoyed the routine, and I love having the bird feeder right "in front of me" while I do the practice. And now my petunia is flowering! smile

Didn't sleep well last night, but a lovely yoga session brought a fresh start to my day. Beautiful blue skies and sunshine.

A delightful yoga session with sunshine and a purring kitty. The rose plant Bob got me last Valentine's Day is looking ready to flower!

Thanks for all your updates smile

I regularly do The Spinal Warm up series from Kundalini and have found that to be great to energise and waken the body in the morning. I posted an article about it earlier smile

A lovely yoga session while snowflakes danced and spun outside my window. The bluebirds are stocking up on suet to prepare! I got video smile

Hi Lisa (Pinkus) Thanks for sharing! Sounds great. Hadn't heard of DDP Yoga - just looked it up. They describe it as a hybrid yoga due to all the additions. Good to know you've found a yoga that helps and makes you feel good smile

I did modified yoga this afternoon, avoided all the head-down poses like Downward Facing Dog. Still foggy, but feeling better. The flu is finally fading. It was nice to stretch and watch the bluebirds.

Hi Lisa hope the flu is lifting! Good to see you are still able to do a modified gentle practice while ill. Hope the recovery is swift.

Today I have done some deep stretches and will take a long brisk walk later to blow off the cobwebs smile

I finally got the kitchen cleared out enough to do yoga again. It's funny how quickly it fills with clutter. I enjoyed it immensely. My body definitely misses it when I can't do it. Julie was walking all around beneath me while I did my downward facing dog.

Did my yoga, my tailbone is sore from doing the 100 situps yesterday. Bob recommends I just hold plank longer vs doing situps to work on my stomach muscles. So I'll give that a try. The spinal twists felt really, really nice.

Sounds good advice - holding plank for longer. I've been diagnosed with pleurisy which has come on since having the flu before Christmas. Been in a lot of pain with it and at last got a proper diagnosis after being fobbed off that it was muscular!

Been doing breathing exercises and the kriya I posted in my article last week to try and alleviate symptoms also taking lots of rest!

On Tuesday night I ended up at a friend's small office for a few hours in the evening, waiting for my boyfriend to finish playing darts. He was playing in a smoky club so I didn't want to be in the club with him. I ended up just doing my yoga routine on the carpet. It was lovely! It was great to have a way to relax and exercise without needing any equipment at all. It was after hours so there was nobody in the office to see me smile

Wow I think that was the last time I did yoga. It's funny how the days slip away.

Today was *gorgeous* out so for the first time this year I did yoga on the back porch. It was fantastic. Julie, my cat, sprawled at my side. She's normally an inside-only cat but I let her out when I go out.

Blue skies, drifting clouds, singing birds, quite lovely.

Wow, a long time since my last yoga. This poison ivy did me in.

Had a lovely yoga session in the early evening - but killed at least 15 mosquitoes while I was out there. Feeling a tad bit guilty.

It was the first day the poison ivy felt under control enough to attempt it.

I had a really nice Yin Yoga session which I just finished. I did it in my workout room with lots of clothes on and blankets. It is 18 degrees with wind chill of 1 degrees and it is still snowing, going on day 4 now. I long for the day I can do yoga on my patio.

Hi Lisa,

Glad you managed to do some yoga. You've had it tough recently! Hope you're better soon smile

I've been doing some very basic stretches, breathing exercises and meditation during my bout of pleurisy. Still not right yet although I feel the sessions have helped me - if not physically definitely emotionally.

I still haven't done a full session, I need to get back into the habit.

I did do tree pose today. I do that when I'm standing around so that one is "easy" for me.

Wow, I never realize how long has gone by until I post again.

My new technique is I got 3 DVDs from the library so I have to do them daily to try them all out and return them in time.

Tested out the DVD "Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility" with Ashley Turner. I did the stress relief part tonight. It was quiet and gentle. I'll try the flexibility half tomorrow.

I've done several routines from my Yoga for Weight Loss DVD. Today I did a 30 minute one followed by a 20 minute one. They were OK but did have some issues. Hopefully tomorrow (Monday) I can tackle the 50 minute routine.

Hi Neviathwen,

Love the sound of your sequences. Using the breath throughout the postures is great to increase length. I always imagine pulling the ribcage away from the hips with each in breath to lengthen the spine and increase the stretch. It is so beneficial to the body as it keeps us tall instead of all bunched up in the middle.

Thanks for sharing your inspiring session.

When we were at the vet yesterday with Ivory, our parakeet, both Bob and I did tree pose in the waiting room. It was relaxing and calming. It's good to have these "tools" to work with so when you are in a stressful situation you have the techniques at your disposal.

Wow, it is just amazing how time scampers by when one is not paying attention.

I just did a full yoga set today, the first time in apparently a very long time.

I need to make this part of my daily routine again. My muscles definitely are not as stretchy as they used to be.

One day at a time. Today was a good yoga day smile.

Absolutely Chelle - every step is a step in the right direction!

How about just giving yourself some "halos" for the day, to celebrate. Sit up straight and gently rotate your head as if it was making halos.

My back and neck have been so stiff lately, I had been thinking of giving some (very) mild yoga a try. I know I don't need yoga pants to do yoga, but it makes me feel more like it, lol!

Every little bit helps! Try doing even "arm flaps". Stand and gently rotate left, then right, as if your arms were loose coat sleeves. Let them flap against your body at the end of each turn. It helps to loosen your spine and feels nice.

A lovely yoga session on my back porch - but last night's massive rainstorm seems to have swept away the cute tree frog. I can't find him! I hope he's all right. I did see many dragonflies.

I did some fun yoga as part of a photography project. I'll post about that in the photography forum smile.

A lovely yoga session. I haven't done a full one in a while. Plus the birds were flying steadily at the feeder. A lovely start to the day.

Hi Lisa,

That sounds lovely.

I'm just back from a yoga class. I joined in a friends class today. It was great to do an unfamiliar routine. Although, I did a Pilates class on Monday and my muscles are still sore so I had to take it slow today.

I've never tried Pilates. I should some day smile.

I love my morning yoga sessions. My spine and hamstrings feel so much better afterwards. They crave the stretching. I had a relaxing one this morning in the kitchen, where I can see the bird feeders while I move. It's a great start to the day.

Hi Lisa,

The top looks lovely. I wear loose leggins and a long sleeved top to do yoga in.

Pilates is good. Excellent for core stability as a lot of the exercises engage the stomach muscles. I have been to several classes with different teachers and no two classes have been the same. The Monday class was very yoga like as in the postures were familiar yoga postures including; The Tree, Downward Dog, Plank and a version of Salute To The Sun.

Tracy -

I greatly prefer my thinner-strapped top as it doesn't bind as much -



But I don't have 7 of those and I tend to only do wash once a week smile.

Did fairly brief yoga today because I also did an hour of Wii dancing, which I love.

Here's another of my Danskin tops - still don't like it as much as the thin strap one. It's good to have a selection though smile.

Back on my night schedule; woke up at 2pm. A lovely yoga session with sunlight streaming through the window. Then organized my watercolors. Bob got me some lovely bins and binders so everything's neat now. Excellent. Next up, a final read-through of my latest 10-chapter novella so I can hand that over to the reviewers.

Do you guys do any daily stretching?

Did my morning yoga routine today after a 2 week break. It felt SO good to stretch. My spine and neck absolutely needed it. My neck was incredibly crinkly.

What yoga have you done recently?

That sounds like a great idea, Terri!

Yesterday I didn't do any because I had to wake up and race out the door to Bob's benefit gig. I barely had time to shower.

Today I had a fantastic yoga session. All of a sudden I had a wealth of ideas for the third mystery book I'm writing. After days of being stuck!

Lisa, you are so disciplined. I have trouble with my schedule, trying to fit everything in. I know if I did my yoga first thing in the morning it would be best but I'm not a morning person and prefer late afternoon or evening.

Technically I'm not a morning person - I wake up around 1pm or 2pm or so smile. Still, I do the yoga right when I wake up. Otherwise life takes over and I never find the time.

Tried yoga with Tiger Balm Ultra on my shoulders. It was good, but not "really" different. Maybe because my yoga top is a halter?

I should try it with a regular t-shirt, to hold in the heat.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who would rather work at night and sleep late. You're right do the yoga first thing, or I may never get it done. Do you mind telling me what time do you start and finish work? You are so busy.

I work from home. I wake up somewhere between 1-3pm. I then work until probably 3am or so, and go to sleep. I sometimes might watch an hour or two of TV with Bob in the living room. I start with my hour of yoga most days. I'm hoping now that it's warmer that I'll be able to do some kayaking some afternoons.

Lisa, I work from home too. Not quite the same schedule but similar. I find that people don't understand why I sleep so late, even when I tell them I work at night. I have been doing my yoga in the afternoon when I'm more awake, but then it gets pushed aside sometimes. Today I did it first thing this morning. Felt good, I'll see how I do with this schedule.

PS--Is there a particular reason you work at night other than just being a night person? If it's personal then disregard.

I am often making coding changes to BellaOnline and have to reboot the server. I don't want to do that midday when we have millions of people trying to use it smile.

Here's my yoga space, on my back deck. Pepper plants, rosemary plant, hummingbird and suet feeder, kitty on leash smile. The pepper plants and rosemary plant are several years old - we bring them in each winter. They've only been outside for a week or two.

Oh, you are so lucky, what a beautiful setting. We had a foot of snow this weekend and are still melting out. It's usually late May or early June when I can practice outside.

I could easily feel like that, with the massive backlog of work I have. But I find it doesn't help if I feel stressed - it only makes it harder to do each task. Tasks go so much quicker and smoother if I'm relaxed. So I focus on the task before me and give it my all. And when it's done I move to the next task. Rushing rarely makes it go better. Usually in my case it just makes it worse smile.

That's a whole giant topic - I'll post about it in the Self Development forum smile

I had a wonderful yoga session today - it was too hot to do it on the back porch. Funny how the seasons change so quickly. It seems like it was just spring.

A busy day. Finally getting to post that yes, I had a yoga session on my back porch when I began. Julie snoozed in the shade by my side. It was just so peaceful. It was fairly hot out, though - I had to set up my yoga mat under the shade of the umbrella. And summer's barely here!

Misty and cool today - perfect for a back porch yoga session. The hummingbirds flitted in and out, enjoying the nectar. A lovely day. #yoga Have you done any stretching today? Now's the perfect time to do some gentle neck exercises!

I had a lovely yoga session on the back porch. Hummingbirds kept me company - and Bob fixed the mower! We have a fire pit again! Happy. I had thought the helicopters flying overhead were preparing for Obama's visit on Wednesday, but it turns out a man was lost in the nearby forest. Bob and I headed over to help with the effort - fortunately a K9 unit found him and all was resolved. So all in all a good day.

This was a perfect example of staying positive leads to amazing things. I aimed to wake up at 11am - I need to rotate my schedule to wake up by 7:30am on Saturday. I ended up sleeping until 3. Still, I stayed upbeat and went out to do my yoga. It seemed too sunny out, but I persevered, moved the table umbrella and made myself a shady spot. It was perfect - Juliet sprawled with me and the phoebe chicks chimed in above my head. But now I was running late for my 5:30pm opening reception for my two photos at the Worcester City Hall. Bob was sweet and said he'd drive me in so I didn't have to find parking. I got to the meeting place (another gallery) at 6pm and nobody was there from our group - but I was undeterred. I enjoyed the items there, including two amazing black-and-white drawings by a local artist. Then I walked across to the City Hall gallery. The group was there - and began leaving! They were done for the day and were all heading home. I could have been disappointed, but I decided to enjoy the gallery on my own. As I was there, Bruce showed up, then Judy, and soon we had eight of us enjoying the show. It was great. Then my phone died, so I couldn't call Bob. So I kept an eye on my watch and at 6:55 said my good-byes. I was going to meet Bob at 7pm on the street as our fail-safe. As I'm heading out through the City Hall garage I hear one of my favorite songs from local band Neptune's Car . My first instinct - to pull out my camera to record the music, to show Neptune's Car how their music is being piped in to the city garage. As I do, I realize the music is coming from ALL AROUND ME. I yell in delight and go racing up the ramp of the garage to the common area - and THERE THEY ARE!! LIVE!!! I'm now in seventh heaven. I keep looking over to the street to watch for Bob while I enjoy the amazing music. I finally see Bob doing his loop and race over to him, ask him to park, and race back to the music. Neptune's Car even does two encores so I can enjoy more of them. And we get to chat afterwards. Then Bob drives me home - and now I'm on the back porch listening to WICN on my laptop waiting for the Neptune's Car live interview to come on in about 15 minutes. I'll be recording it. And while I'm listening to the streaming folk music with Irish whistles, a pair of cardinals come over to the birch tree next to me and listen in! Just a lovely, lovely day. And in so many places I could have given up or been unhappy.

A fantastic back porch yoga session - hummingbirds flew down to peer in curiosity at Juliet the cat. She peered back. Serenity smile. Bob mentions, though, that this is training the hummingbirds that cats are friendly, peaceful creatures, which may not be in their best interest.

I did yoga in the Atlanta airport last week. I am traveling so I get some in whenever and wherever I can. As I was doing the airport yoga I asked myself "am I the only person doing yoga in this airport right now?" Something fun to think about. I've always wanted to do an informal yoga to relax in an airport for distressed passengers or anybody. Maybe I'll try it going home.

A lovely yoga session on the back porch. Cool for August. I never put my AC in my office window this year. Are we having a strange year? I certainly appreciate August being so temperate - but does this mean we'll have a frigid winter?

My peppers marigolds rosemary crocus lavender are now "home" the dining room window area; I had my first #yoga session with them. Lovely! They are all potted so they go out in the summer and then back in during the winter. I'm looking forward to seeing the crocus plants make saffron blossoms. So far they are just green stalks.

Had a great yoga session this morning - Bob even spotted me so I could do a better backbend. My spine needed it! How are you today?

Here's a simple in-seat exercise. Imagine you have a halo over the crown of your head. Slowly trace it with your crown five times clockwise. Then five times counter-clockwise.

Had a lovely yoga session. I contemplated why our society sometimes can judge people as "ugly" or "not ugly" - is this healthy? Why do we feel the need to denigrate someone for their looks, which is typically beyond their control? Is that like denigrating someone for their skin color, also beyond their control? I feel we each, in our own way, have beauty. We each look different and that is wonderful. I love portraits that bring out that beauty in each person. Great-grandparents can be beautiful. Toddlers can be beautiful. We can each be beautiful. What do you think?

Had a lovely yoga session this morning. So happy with the rosemary and other plants being in the kitchen area. I breathe them in smile. #yoga

A beautiful morning #yoga session with marigolds, rosemary, and a gently growing rose plant. A lovely way to start a day. #serenity

A wonderful, relaxing yoga session this morning. My body feels so good when I do yoga. Especially the spinal twists. I just love those #yoga

Yoga was lovely today - I made some headway on cleaning the kitchen / dining area. That's where I do my yoga. One step at a time! #yoga
