How great is that? Offering yoga classes to cancer patients seems only natural. Iíve experienced great results practicing Kundalini Yoga. I feel more relaxed and creative. As a dancer, I am more flexible and have more energy. It has even increased my intuition and has lead me down the path of inner discovery. Youíve got to check it out and see what kinds of Kundalini Yoga benefits youíll experience. http://www.yogatech.com/kundalini_yoga_ben

I am so happy that I decided to attend a yoga class. Don't wait until you have a partner to go with you. Just do it ! I know you will love the feeling of being relaxed at the end of the class.

I have been teaching yoga for almost 10 years. Everything about the health benefits are true, and that is borne out by the comments I regularily get from my students after class. Personally, i feel more relaxed, happier, and better equipped to deal with day to day stress. I often hear that people are not able to do it because they are not fit or flexible or they have weight issues. If you WANT to get fit, more flexible and loose weight, they just do it! Remember to move at your own pace and go slowly if you are just starting out. You will feel wonderful, and you will get better at it as you keep doing it!

I started Yoga a couple of months ago and LOVE IT!!! Definitely a good addition to anyones workout or schedule! It has improved my ability to do every other kind of exercise as well as improved my body awareness and alignment. You just can't go wrong with yoga unless you have a bad instructor or try to do too much.

Weeeeelllll, I gotta do something! Yoga sounds cool, gentle with low-impact. I think I need to give it a try!

I recently discovered Bikram yoga (thanks to some word of mouth and a great introductory offer), and plan to incorporate it into my exercise routine as a complement to the various cardio exercises I do (running, soccer, ice hockey, etc.). I find that it not only stretches all my joints, giving me greater mobility and working out the kinks of my impact exercise, but it strengthens my core as well. Bikram is practised in a hot room (around 105F) which was alarming at first, but my body is adapting to that as well, and I feel I will also be better able to perform in the summer heat thanks to these adaptations my body is making.

There are some excellent desk exercises on the yoga site mentioned here. I'm looking forward to trying them when I get back to work.

I took a yoga class during college and I didn't really take it seriously. I just started taking yoga again with my sister and it has been a great way to relax me. 75 minutes of relaxation once a week is wonderful!! I highly suggest it to everyone

I love yoga and still incorporate some of the poses into my stretching, but don't take a class anymore. I miss that a lot, but time constraints and family commitments have let it slip off the radar.

I have found that when beginning an exercise program, just doing the warmups, and doing them very slowly (as in tai chi) gets things to start loosening up without injury. That way, too, one can learn what irritates any painful body part without damage and work around it instead of forcing injury and getting more pain. Besides, I believe yoga is all about holding the poses to strengthen the muscles, and doing them slowly to NOT to tear the muscles.
