I decided that because I want my healthy start to be a lifestyle change, I am going to make slow and steady changes. My first change besides eating healthier is to get some exercise. I have always liked yoga. I used to do a lot of yoga years ago. I enjoy the slow, low-impact movements. Being so overweight makes moving feel very cumbersome, and my joints often ache. I think yoga will be just the ticket to get me moving.
I have a yoga app on my iPhone that has different poses and even a plan with different workouts. I wanted to do some more research on it to get armed with as much information as possible. I also plan to attend yoga classes at the gym as long as I can get the scheduling to coordinate with work, school, and my daughter.
I found this website which I am pretty excited about.
- Pose index with pictures
- Articles of basic information
- Information on anatomy and meditation
- Background history and traditions of yoga
- Basic holistic healing information
- Yoga teacher directory
- Yoga blogs, videos, and newsletters
- A marketplace to shop for yoga accessories
- Question and answer section
I am still investigating the site, but I like what I see so far.
Today, since I am still sick and recovering from bronchitis, I will start by doing a few poses at home and reading over the site to arm myself with information.
I will also be trying to schedule at least one yoga class at the gym by the week’s end.
What are you doing to start your road to good health?
