Yoga is a way to escape from everything and go into your own little world, It will help you to forget all the things that are stressing you for a short while. Without doubt, Yoga will help make a positive change in your life. There are many things that yoga can help you with, stress, depression, many medical problems, etc.  Yoga is an on going therapy treatment.  For best results and long term benefit you have to stay with it.

What are some of the things yoga will help me with?
Yoga can and will help you with many things.  Yoga can help with breathing, not by changing your breathing for you, but helping you to recognize your own breaths. Yoga will teach you how to get in touch with you own breathing, so you can better control it. Yoga will help you learn how to control your mind as well as your breathing, if you have asthma it can help, carpal tunnel, depression, anger issues, lower back pain, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis of the knees, memory problems, heat disease, high blood pressure, can help you lose weight, will also help the elderly or someone that has balance trouble keep balance.   Yoga helps you to listen to your own body.  It gets you in touch with yourself (inside and outside), so it can help in many ways.

How do I get started with Yoga?
A good place to start is to talk to a physician, family doctor or therapist you are already working with and see if they have a recommendation for you.   But, you can always go on line and search for any type of yoga you may be interested in.  I suggest you start with ‘beginner yoga classes’ or ‘gentle yoga’.    There are many free classes out there for you to get started.

One site that I use online (I use the free version) is Do Yoga With Me.

Can yoga hurt me?
Yoga can hurt you if you don’t know what your doing or you do too much of it at once that is why you need to talk to your family doctor or a trusted Yoga Teacher before you start anything new that is stressful to your body. You have to take these kinds of things slow it’s just like exercising, you have to build yourself up. You can’t run right into it and expect full benefits from it. It doesn’t  work that way. It takes time and obligation before you will see any changes in your body or mind.

When learning to do yoga just take your time and be conscious to it learn all you can learn cause it will help you deal with many health issues. You may have just don’t try to do it all at once and make sure you call your family doctor to make sure it ok to do it. Then try to find a good group. Groups are always easier for some one that way you have some support to turn to if you have any problems. If you can’t afford gym payments, then try asking family and friends to join you. You can start your own home gym at home. At local dollar stores, you will find videos for one buck. Use the videos to gain skills in exercise and yoga.

Yoga is an interesting exercise, it will get your entire body moving and stretching, helping you to build muscle and reduce stress.  Give it a try, Yoga will provide many benefits and in return is a great way to move forward improving your overall personal life.

Why not try Yoga for the next 12 weeks!  Make it a habit.
