Yoga

I have been thinking about giving yoga a try, but I can't really afford classes. Can you teach yourself yoga or is it something that you need a class for?

I have a friend who taught herself using a combination of free online videos and a book from the library. You can't get cheaper than that! I imagine you'd have to watch the videos through a couple of times before trying the poses.

Yoga is very beneficial for your health and also helps to reduced your mental stress.I think yoga makes you mentally fit and strong.
What do you think?

I've got a yoga DVD somewhere I think! It's something I've always wanted to get into, but never really gotten around to. I'd be too scared to go to a class, I always think of middle aged desperate housewives types when I think of classes even though I know it's not like that! Although around here, knowing the people that go, it probably is

I finally found some yoga classes nearby but once was enough for me. The class was full of thin, rich and snobby women. It wasn't fun for me at all! I picked up a couple of beginner routine DVDs and began following along with those for now.

I know there are several good yoga dvd's because I have friends who love yoga and do it at home. I would look on Amazon and do a search and read customer reviews. That is usually what helps me to make a decision on a workout dvd.

Yoga is very good for your health and also helps you to reduced your mental stress. I think yoga exercise makes you mentally match and strong. You can learn yoga by yourself by downloading videos on YouTube.
