    Yoga

    When people think of yoga, they often think of pretzel people -- but
    yoga isn't just about poses (or asanas). In fact the word "yoga" just
    means "yoke" or "unite" -- and the union is a spiritual one between you
    and the universe around you. Some forms of yoga pay a lot more
    attention to the breath and meditation than they do to developing killer
    upper arms or super-flexible legs -- for instance Kundalini, which
    focuses on awakening the energy that lies "coiled like a serpent at the
    base of the spine", and Sivananda which emphasizes proper diet,
    relaxation, and positive thinking as well as asanas.


    Always check with your doctor before you start a new exercise regime, by the way.

    I do Yaga and I enjoy it.
    So what do you think about Yaga?

    be honest!

    Re: Yoga

    In all my seven, eight years of dancing.. I have never been introduced to Yoga. I want to learn how to do it. That and the art of zen, and meditation. They are all forms of connecting with your "inner self". It's a nice way to relax and focus is what I've heard. I haven't done it, but I'd like to.

    Re: Yoga

    Is it true that it helps you become more flexible as well. Or is that just a myth? Because different people are made with different bodies and are not always able to "flex" certain parts of their bodies. I'm only asking because it seems you have taken yoga before.

    Re: Yoga

    It does make you abit more flexible but only for some poeple the others could be quite hard
    but they manage to get flexible by lots of training.
    Me, I train with weights and do Yoga.
    So I'm pretty heathy in body and mind.

    Re: Yoga

    the flexibility depends on what type of Yoga as there is one for strength and one for flexibility.

    I myself out of all of my 12 years of dancing has taken TWO yoga classes and will never do it again. I felt sick while trying to do yoga and light headed. I didn't want to do that all over again.

    For i am more of a pilates kind of dancer, which does also focus on breathing and co-ordination with the breath and movement. essential for Humphrey dancers

    Re: Yoga

    The only way to lose yourself into your inner-self through meditation is yoga.
    Or something like that.

    Yoga is an acient art, which makes the person performing it connect him/herself to his/her inner self. It makes you relaxed, concentrated, flexible, fresh and what not. Many body problems can be cured by yoga, and that's the beauty of it. And it's not about the complicated Arsans it is also about how you can calm yourself. It's brilliant, try it out. ^_^

    Re: Yoga

    I'd consider taking up yoga if there wasn't all that spiritual Hindu stuff involved. It doesn't seem right to me to immerse myself in something that may potentially go against my own religion. I won't be surprised if other religious people share the same views.
