For those of you who just drop by to look around, why DON'T you do Yoga? Is it a matter of time, knowledge or you're just not interested? Please share because we're just curious. :)

I am trying to start again. It's a bit difficult since my first instructor was my best friend, who passed away a couple of years ago. She was an exceptionally good instructor, too so hard to replace.

There are Yoga classes in the community center BUT...

a) the time of day is usually awkward for me (more often than not, drive tim is when they offer hem and I'm trying to get dinner ready at that tim)

b) they last for all of 4 - 6 weeks and then they stop! I need a continuing class to keep me going...

Oh, and also, they are an extra cost above and beyond center membership as, while they us center facilities, they are taught by outside instructors.

SO while the classes interest m, they aren't made attractive enough for me to start.

Working part time on a changing shift 7 days a week, leaves little room to plan for any classes.

Hmmm, how interesting. I must be really lucky that my gym doesn't charge extra for classes. But then again I live in a small town and don't guess they'd have much in the way of members if they charged for the classes. ;)

I see that most of the difficulty is getting to class. Remember that a class and an instructor are not necessary (wonderful if you can have them though), you can practice on your own, at home, whenever you have time.

Hi! I didn't know where to start either so I bought a beginner YOGA DVD (which I've since given to my mother). There's quite a selection to look through here: http://www.collagevideo.com/mainnew.aspx and you might be able to find something to help.

Let us know which one you get as we're always wanting DVD reviews. :)

I didn't do yoga for many years because I thought that running would be a better use of my time. Now that I've started doing yoga, I absolutely love it and know how good of a workout it is. My problem is that I'm still learning how to do some of the poses so sometimes my form is off, but I'm getting better!
