various and assorted miscellany
Easy Yoga - thanks for that reminder that we don't all have to be super bendy to enjoy. :)
You can even do Yoga in a chair.
Happy Yoga day to you also. Namaste.
I tried yoga, but meh. I've been doing T'ai Chi and QiGong related energy work
I began Yoga in high school and have always loved it. I like Tai Chi and QiGong, too.
...there a day for everything!
Happy International Yoga Day. Sadly, some of us are just not good at it and find it very frustrating. Glad you enjoy it, though.
Being "good" at it is not the goal, though. Being present in the pose as you can be, being aware of your body... It's not about being good at the pose. Adapting the pose for your own body so that it becomes accessible to _you_ no matter your physical limitations is more the goal than imitating any other practitioner. If I'd waited to be at all good at it I'd never've started.
Yoga is one of those things I keep saying, "I should do that."
You could pick one pose and do it every day for a while to see if it suits you. I love how calming it is, how centering.
I did yoga with the wii fit for a while and moved on to a biggest loser yoga video. I'm not very flexible but after doing a video for a while I can ace corpse pose.
Flexibility isn't required for many poses.
I think I could manage the corpse pose. Otherwise... I'm not as bendable as I wish.
You don't have to be bendy for any of these poses.
Never tried yoga. I'd have to stick with the chair exercises at this point in my life--LOL! :)
Yoga can be done seated. It's amazing how adaptable it is.
I think the corpse pose is the only one I could do! Valerie
If you can't stand, you can do these other 2 seated. If you can't raise your hands all the way for that 2nd one, you can raise them just as much as you can and be find.
Yoga is always something I've been meaning to try!Perhaps I will!All the best Jan
It's an important part of my days.
