In my Yoga Zone

Ever since I first heard of yoga back in 5th grade, I've been in love. A guest teacher came to our school to demonstrate a few simple positions and I was enthralled (please hold all questions pertaining to my "nerdiness" in elementary school or the super contempo-casual suburbia I must have grown up in) .

I loved the fluidity of the movements and the ease in which the teacher transitioned from one into the next. So naturally, being a true nerd ... I went to the library (thank God for Google) and checked out as many books on yoga as I could find. After having a few mishaps while trying to self-teach myself ( you do not want to make mistakes while doing yoga by yourself... imagine having your ankles stuck behind your head... scary stuff!)  Luckily, to my surprise,
one day I was watching TV and I came across a TV show called Yogazone (cue the falling in love montage). And naturally, since my sisters did not have the soul of a middle age lady, everyday we would have a fight to the death for the remote. I wasn't as zen then as I am now. :)

Recently I've had more time on my hands as college started to come to an end. I started attending yoga classes at my school the past few months and I can't tell you how relaxed and rejuvenated I feel afterward.This was my first time actually practicing with other people in a class setting, and it was a wonderful experience. I plan on treating myself to enrolling in yoga classes after I move to New York to continue getting my weekly detox. So in the spirit of Spring and being healthy, I wanted to write this post and share some of my favorite yoga positions. And of course, it wouldn't be me if I didn't also leave you with a yoga workout style pick ;)

  2. I have tried yoga and I absolutely admire those who do it regularly. Their posture is just so nice. However, I'm not flexible at all and had a hard time. Went back to cardio after that. Would love to try it again some time.

    Just found your blog through blog-hop, following you :)
