I truly love yoga. It is what makes me feel calm and centered, yet energized. Whenever I am feeling down, I do yoga. Whenever I am feeling happy, I do yoga. To put it like Tara Stiles, my all-time favorite guru, says “Yoga cures”. It is the perfect way to get in touch with yourself and to just calm down. I have not always been a yoga-lover though and I am aware of how it might seem like a very hard activity to get into, with the breathing, various poses and their odd Indian sanskrik names.
Initially I though yoga was a quite strange activity, with a lot of men in Speedos and weird chanting. I also belonged to the group that were under the impression that yoga was not a proper workout… I am so fortunate as to having a quite non-traditional introduction to yoga, and I think that is the reason I got hooked. It all started with Bob Harper’s yoga DVD called “Yoga For The Warrior”. It was intense and challenging, and after that I wanted to do more. I continued doing this DVD almost everyday for weeks before I started looking around for some variety. That is when I discovered The Ultimate Yogi program.
It is an intense 108 day program, that revolves around doing between 60-90 minutes yoga and 10-30 minutes meditation every single day. Last year, on the 12th of October, I started a quite intense yoga program. I will not go into very much details on this here, but you can read my Day 1 post here. I finished this program the 28th of January 2013, and now that I am finished I feel like I know enough yoga to do it on my own without a DVD. It is incredibly refreshing to just put on my yoga playlist, roll out my mat and start moving however I feel like. I am still working on writing my final Day 108 post, but when it is finished I will post the link here.
I created this page to make it very easy to navigate through my previous posts on yoga, and I will continuously add in links every time I write one about this subject. You can also check out my tumblr, where I post yoga photos of myself and my progress (though not nearly often enough)!
