Yoga?

Does anyone do or have ever done yoga?  It's basically just stretching, right?  I was thinking of learning a few basic poses and wasn't sure if anyone had any tips or tricks, do's or don'ts.  Thanks.

I think I'd have to call them suicide jumps!

Yes, that move is one of my specialties.    As for those jumps, Sandy, they are in one of the Jillian Michaels videos I do.   She calls them rock star jumps.   Holy ka-moly.   I struggle.

walking is good for you!  and it's better than nothing!  DH and I keep saying we're going to start walking.  I always liked the deep stretching after a work out too.

I think I'd probably like the stretching part too... it was one of my favorite times in the Zumba classes... the warm up and the cool down. All that hard work in between is the pits but the music was awesome! My favorite Zumba song was "Tonight's Gonna be a Good Good Night"... I think Black Eyed Peas sang it... still love it. Amber and I have decided that if and when it ever warms up a little, we are going to dig out the strollers and go on walks with the kids. I know walking is nothing compared to Zumba or running or Jillian Michaels but as a little sign I seen the other day said ... we'd still be lapping those just sitting on the couch! =)

It is one of those things you either love or hate.

I think I'd like it.   I love the way my body feels after doing deep stretches.
