SWell, it's not necessarily new for me. I took a yoga class several years ago and really enjoyed it because it fixed my back and I felt calmer. I decided that this year I wanted to bring yoga back into my daily life. As I was at Aldi's, which is the best grocery store ever, they had a package called the gift of yoga, which only cost $4. It had a DVD and a guide book. That was how I got started on yoga again.
It's only been a week since I started yoga, but I feel more energized. Though I did realize how my flexibility and balance went down the toilet in the years since I took yoga. I'm hoping that these things will come back as I start incorporating the practice. Right now I'm only doing yoga 3 times a week for 15 minutes because it is that intense. I think if I keep working at it, I will feel better overall.
Yoga has some great health benefits, which is why I wanted to start again. It helps with energy and relaxation. Since I have problems with energy due to my thyroid condition, I think that the practice will help me with my lack of energy. It should also help with my cholesterol as yoga technically counts as exercise.
It's an improvement that I hope that I can continue.
