Re: Yoga - Relax, Refocus and Make More Money!

my wife and i do yoga once every week or so. its amazing how poses and stretches can really relieve the stress build-up in the neck and shoulders from sitting in front of a computer all day. but the best part is the little nap we take at the end of a session!

So what have you guys found more helpful/easier to keep up? Doing yoga on your own or in a group?

For me
Bikram definitely = group
Prasara definitely = alone

Re: Yoga - Relax, Refocus and Make More Money!

Bikram for me, I just luv the sweating

Question... Do any of you gurus recommend doing yoga every day? Maybe twice a day?

I have a few months off work and I really want to get into it again so I can have a fresh start in my life mentally and physically.

I am a beginner BUT I'm no wimp when it comes to physical stuff

pa,

re: “have a few months off work”
Consider taking the Bikram 30 (or 60!) day challenge… geometric benefits… life changing health…

all the best,

Re: Yoga - Relax, Refocus and Make More Money!

Hi ZDO!

I've signed up at pure fitness/yoga and they have similar called hot yoga, the same (or almost the same) moves as bikram, I guess the package rename because of copyright stuff. Anyway, two weeks and 8 days of 1 hr lessons so far .... feels good but totally humbled, you think you know your body but phffff..... out of the window. No 30/60 day challenge like bikram but I challenge myself to do it everyday.

Most the ladies there seem to be as graceful and supple as a butterfly when this guy (me) walks in like metallic robot, argh!

I'm still have trouble breathing when doing some moves, still need more attention the breath is the most important I think.

Take care,
Pete

They bring in flexibility. You bring in strength.
They are adding strength. You are adding flexibility.

Typically I'm not even close to being a purist on these kinds of things but in this case I would say, if you can, do Bikram 1.5 hr. sessions instead of the spinoff class. Odds are facilitators who are not Bikram certified will be less likely to integrate and time the meditative aspects as thoroughly, or be able to give you best real time (and long term) guidance on things like the breath, or optimizing exertion, rest periods, etc.

All the best,

zdo

Re: Yoga - Relax, Refocus and Make More Money!

Hi ZDO,

The bikram centre closed a few years back in this country, something to do with licencing problems and friction between the franchise agent and bikram head office. Anyway after they closed, some instructors bikram qualified moved to Pure Yoga centre and hence that's where 'Hot Yoga' formed. So it seems I'm well looked after apart from one crappy instructor but overall happy.

Don't really care about the 26 postures really, I just want motivation and a hot place to sweat and stretch.
