Yoga is sooo great. And Tree pose (above) is a great beginner pose to get your feet wet in the practice. Yoga will make you strong, flexible, and will fill up your peace tank when it is running low. And who doesn’t need that?
If you’ve always wanted to try yoga, but don’t like the thought of trying to turn your stick figure into a pretzel, think about giving this DVD a try: http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Rest-Us-Peggy-Cappy/dp/B0001IXT90/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1422376750&sr=1-1&keywords=yoga+for+the+rest+of+us
My sister suggested this one to me years ago, and I’m so glad she did. These are poses most anyone can do, even if you’re stiff and inflexible, have arthritis, are overweight, you name it…you can do it. Peggy’s students in the video are not the typical gumby-skinny-minnies you see in most every yoga DVD. It can be offputting to turn on a beginner yoga DVD and not even be able to do the most basic move (which happened to me many times before). This DVD is different. It was available at my local library (and hopefully yours too), and so I could try for free. I wound up buying this and many of her other DVDs and recommending them to numerous people. It’ll make you feel great! I promise.
Looking forward to the end of the alphabet tomorrow, and I hope you’ll join me then. Namaste.
