I have dabbled a little in yoga over the years, but over the past year in particular, I have began practicing it regularly and pushing myself to learn more harder poses and concentrate on the meditation and breathing aspects of it. I have seen a drastic change in my anxiety and depression (no longer needing medications), flexibilty, posture, strength, and overall well being. Does anyone else practice yoga? How has it helped you?
I currently do the P90X program at home. Once a week I have to do Yoga, and there is a lot of Yoga mixed in with the other work outs as well. I love it and I hate it. I find it very difficult and for some reason it is hard on my wrists. However, I do feel the benefits of it as well and there is no better stress relief for me than exercise (except maybe a bubble bath without kids running in every 5 minutes) I am positive that the more I keep at it the easier it will become and the more my body and mind will benefit from it!
:How is the P90X working for you, now five weeks later? I never saw that you responded to this... Yoga can definitely be rough on the writst, but there are some great exercises that can help with that. In fact, I suffered from tendinitis pretty bad that practically disappeared with yoga.
I'm not always good at keeping up with it, but I try to have a short daily yoga practice at home. I definitely feel stronger and more flexible and, yeah, calmer throughout my day when I keep up with it. It can be hard to get motivated sometimes, though, despite all the benefits.
I totally agree. When I posted this question I was being really good and doing it almost daily, about 45 mins a day. Now with work and school and my son, I'm just happy if I can squeeze in ten mins of quiet time, let alone yoga time! But trying to keep motivated and on those days I dont feel like doing it the most is when I push myself to do it.
