I decided to step up my yoga practice (after the great Yoga in the Park last week), so I committed to do a 40-minute yoga class morning and night for today, Saturday and sunday.
A great friend who was also into yoga tried it for a week, and that’s too much of a committment for me right now, a weekend is better. He took classes with Baron Baptiste who recommends an intense yoga practice.
I usually use video tapes from Rodney Yee for my home practice. I have about 12 DVDs now including power yoga, am/pm yoga (my favorite). In fact, I buy up extra am/pm yoga dvds so I can give them out to my friends.
Whenever someone comes to my house, I ask them if they want to get up and do some yoga in the morning – and they usually say “YES”, and then we do that video and I give them a copy to take home with them. It’s a good starting point for people who want some gentle stretching that makes you feel great in your body AND your mind.
My two beagles like to lay on the bed and watch us doing yoga. It relaxes them and by the end of the session, they are rolled over on their backs and sound asleep — so that means there must be some kind of vibration that fills the air, so they feel the peacefulness.
So try it yourself this weekend and at your own pace. Maybe only 15 minutes in the morning and night. Maybe an hour.
It will make the weekend more spiritual, and make you feel wonderful! HAPPY SPRING.
