Namaste


I didn't feel like doing any cardio today.
My muscles are aching.
My body is going into shock from the lack of FAT being constantly pumped into it.
I am, overall, CRANKY!
I decided to try Yoga for a change.
You know Yoga....breathing, gentle stretching, easy Yoga.....

Ahhhh...realxing Yoga.
Deep cleansing breaths.


Gentle stretches...
relaxing.the.body....?



Soothing Yoga.
Isn't it peaceful?!
WOW! that was much harder easier
and less more relaxing than jogging for an hour on the treadmill with an incline of 7, speed at 12!
Namaste!

Yeah, that guy's butt is looking peaceful to me! I am suprised how hard it really is every time I try it.

I totally want to try Yoga (did you go somewhere local?)...
but what I want to know first is:
when you're all twisted up like a pretzel...doesn't it squeeze the phart right out of ya? (I am serious!)

ps. I'm a little pissy too.

Yoga (as relaxing as it is) does help you release all of your inner deamons...even the stinky ones!
I didn't GO to a class (heaven forbid) I went to www.yogatoday.com and did an hours worth of suffering.

I bought some pilates DVDs from an infomercial several years ago. I haven't noticed any difference in my mood since I got them.
I wonder if I opened the package and actually did the Pilates if that would make me feel more calm and peaceful.

I totally love yoga, and if you start of with the beginner stuff, it is way more peaceful! :O) But after taking a break or starting off it is hard, but trust me it gets easier and every time I am doing my downward dog, I think to myself I LOVE THIS! It truly helps me feel better mind and body! I have done both DVD's and classes, I have beginner DVD's but my teacher kicks my butt!

I was going to try doing some yoga next week.

I think your post is a sign ;)

I'm going to take a guess at who the people are in the yoga pictures you posted:

#1 Ashley Judd
#2 Madonna
#3 Kelly Ripa
#4 Carrot Top
#5 Ghandi

Am I right? Did I win a plus size sweat towel? Please say I did....

Hey, Lola. :)

My favorite is the face-on-the-floor one. How could you NOT find nirvana that way?

At least you don't have to do a warm up before yoga!
Go easy though - next thing you know you'll be writhing round on the floor in your knickers (panties to you) and fishnets with Justin Timberlake a la Madonna.
(Just because she could doesn't mean she should - am I right?)
