It's been a while since I did yoga and I miss doing it regularly. Yoga is developed in India thousands of years ago. It is a system of physical, mental, and spiritual practises , with the ultimate goal of union. Yoga is suitable for most people. When I first started yoga, I thought there is no way I could do it because it is difficult at first but just like many other things, you get used to it and it becomes easier as you do it regularly. Yoga professional even advised you to consult your doctor before starting yoga if you have a medical condition.
I gotta tell you, before learning yoga, I thought my balance is pretty good but I was wrong lol. It does improve your overall flexibility and agility though. The stretches and poses and proper breathing really helps to have a relaxing mind and body.
Taking up yoga doesn't cost a lot. You can start at home by buying the basic things that you need such as yoga mat, yoga apparel, and other accessories that you need. When it comes to yoga products, I highly recommend Aurorae Yoga. They have a huge selection of yoga mats, yoga footwear, yoga clothing and apparel, and other yoga accessories.
I got one of their classic thick yoga mat in midnight color and it's awesome. It is available in illuminating colors like sea mist, royal plum, infinity, hope, camaroon green, and many other colors. It comes with a free non-slip rosin pack that you can use if you don't have the non-slip 5-toe socks. I love those socks by the way, you don't really need the rosin if you have the socks. As you can see in the photos, I am wearing their non-slip 5-toe socks and it has been one of my favorite socks to wear.
I also like their yoga headband as it is designed to stay on your head during high athletic movements or gentle yoga poses. Their apparels are comfortable too, I have their top and love the material they used although I always used a sports bra underneath it even though I am at home because the stitches at the back bothers my ultra sensitive skin but other than that, they are well made.
Practicing yoga at home is great especially if you have a DVD to watch since you lack that someone to do it with so watching the video really helps.
If you want to learn yoga, you can buy a book that has DVD in it and you can start from there. I got this one a couple of years ago and this is where I have learned some poses. I can't do a lot of the poses yet but I think that if I do it regularly, I will be good at it. It is something I have enjoyed doing. Sometimes I forgot that I am 43 and thought that I was still agile and I always find out that my body ain't the way it is used to be anymore lol. Hard reality of getting Old I guess. Again, practice always makes it easier so I will continue practicing.
Weighed myself this morning and I still weighed the same as last week. I've never struggled losing what I gained but this time, it is definitely kicking my tosh. Most of it too is stuck in my mid section, ugh (not a pretty sight).
