Yoga is not just for the girls...

I am probably the most inflexible human being on the planet.  I've had numerous injuries (and subsequent surgeries) because of this.  I've taken up yoga (as a result of my wife's constant "reminders") and I must say I'm already feeling the positive benefits.

Not only am I feeling more flexible, stronger and healthier, but I'm feeling less stressed.  Guys, we all get stressed out over work, getting older, you name it... yoga is an extremely simple way to alleviate just about every stress and it can only make you a healthier, happier person.

If you have digital cable, you likely have FitTV on demand... there are hours and hours worth of free, on demand yoga instructional episodes.  Get yourself a yoga mat, or just do it on your living room rug.  I promise you'll start feeling the positive effects after the first try.

What did you think of this review?

This is my favorite yoga style- not as demanding as Ashtanga but you are definitely adding to your strength and endurance.

I have taken a studio class and my wife is pretty experienced. Still, we have some free studio lessons that I will use as well. Definitely learn what you're doing first.

Yoga is something I've been meaning to try to offset the bodily destruction of jogging and skiing. Would you recommend learning at a studio or by watching the instructional episodes you mentioned?
