Of all the latest trends in diet and exercise, Yoga seems to be among the best practices to burn fat, as well as promote overall mental and physical health. Having been an athlete, I completely understand the importance of strength and flexibility. The practice of Yoga; however, is a new experience to me. I have a number of friends (male & female) who swear by Yoga suggesting it not only helps you be flexible, it strengthens your muscles and also helps you lose weight.
I am researching my plan to incorporate Yoga or Pilates into my fitness routine. So far, so good. Most local gyms offer Yoga classes open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Maybe you’re interested in Yoga, but can’t find time to make a class. Or, would prefer doing Yoga at home rather than at a health club/gym. In any case, here is a good site with free yoga videos.
Yoga is beautiful. But, make no mistake, Yoga isn’t an “easy,” “girly” “sport.” It isn’t just stretching. It’s tough. It’s breathing through that moment of tightness. It’s taking the initial step and getting to the mat. Some of you will care so much that you’ll try some Yoga and Pilates techniques. You’ll care so much that you’ll even try to encourage some of your own friends, family and associates to “get into” Yoga as well.
So, how much do you really care?
