For first time I have done yoga on my pregnancy. But I felt it is needed for painless moves for long life. So started after delivery too. Now my little one at home enjoying summer vacation am engaged with her. Once she started school everything comes under routine????????

I had a lower back/hip injury and the exercises the physical therapist gave me were just yoga poses with different names. They work really well to manage the pain.

I had health problems when I was younger and took medicine for some of my health issues every year but found physical exercise and activity (I chose mostly a schedule of regular biking) helped to improve my health without potentially harmful medicines and drugs. My best exposure to Yoga is the Hong Kong Cinema film Yoga vs Kung Fu (or is it KUNG FU vs YOGA?). In any case, I was raised a Baptist and a Christian and have been fairly faithful to this system of belief most of my life and generally avoid Eastern religions. I honestly know little more about Yoga aside from it's religious affiliations and this movie.

Just so you know, yoga in and of itself is a physical practice - not a religious practice. One can 'tune in' spiritually while doing it, but no more so than while doing any other physical activity. There are Christians who pray while biking, but that doesn't make biking a religion!

I find yoga to be wonderful for relieving stress and helping me stay active. I have ulcerative colitis, and yoga helps me manage it without medications. It's also wonderful for developing upper body strenghth - all that downward dog pose!

Yoga is a different discipline from Meditation but it is a joining of the body, mind, and spirit. While I have practiced yoga and even pilates but found that my pre-autoimmune diseases/retinal disease/optic nerve birth defect, I found that I got more out my 10mi runs each morning (esp when my dad was alive, particularly when he was in a part of Virginia that wasn't far from where I lived near Georgetown U. He & I used to meet for coffee & muffins while watching the men's & women's sculler teams practicing each morning b4 our stretches & 10mi runs we took together) When I lived at or on the beach or near the Gulf or a sound, I ran 10mi on sand, swam 10mi, & then took the Kodiak out for a 10mi run (it's a paddleboard somewhat like a surfboard only it has a preformed seat w/a feet-rest area & the use of a single oar with paddles on both sides. I find that meditation along w/Tai Chi is best when on a private beach area or arriving before anyone else shows up to get more out of it but I began meditation from a very young age & cont'd the tradition w/my children regarding meditation. It's more a generational teaching of mental discipline as well as calming the mind. As for me personally, it was my time to clear my thoughts in order to find the best course of action & if I didn't find the answers, it was my place to ask for guidance from the Universe & even to find a better understanding of the teachings of The Buddha along with answers from Nature Herself. I recommend it. If it's too physically demanding, I'd recommend finding a teacher in Tai Chi since the Tai Chi discipline is something many people cont' well into their 80s & 90s.

When I'm standing at the kitchen counter I like to stand a certain way that is comfortable to me while I am doing whatever (looks like a flamingo). Someone told me it was a yoga pose. That is as close to doing yoga as I'll get.

I always intend to do yoga but I rarely do it. When I do yoga it helps me stretch, focus, and relieve stress. It makes me feel more centered.

I keep trying but if this is supposed to calm you, I am doing pretty much EVERYTHING wrong because it generally makes me want to throat punch someone. Having to be still in different massively uncomfortable positions....maybe I am just to friggin' hyper for yoga. :/ I do much better with my Crossbow gym (the poor woman's Bowflex lol), Giselle glider, weights and a hula hoop. Oh, yeah, and cutting the grass. When I'm done with all that, I am verrry calm and VERY relaxed. :D

I did it when I was younger, but now feel it's a waste of time. I prefer to bounce on a my mini trampoline (rebounder). It affects every cell in my body.

Yoga ( Sanskrit: ???, ) is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline which originated in India. There is a broad variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism (including Vajrayana and Tibetan Buddhism)
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west, like via Hippies, the Beatles. It was around this time that the Beatles were first exposed to yoga. While the group was filming "Help!" in the Bahamas in 1965, they met Swami Vishnu-Devananda, the founder of Sivandana Yoga. He presented them with signed copies of his work, "The Illustrated Book of Yoga." George Harrison was fascinated by the book and began studying yoga and Eastern religion. His wife, Pattie Boyd, encouraged him to study Eastern mysticism, Indian philosophy and become a vegetarian. By 1966, Harrison journeyed to India to study sitar, a type of stringed instrument, under the master Ravi Shankar. In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise.

Somebody likes to Google stuff, I'm thinkin'

I have a couple of Ravi Shankar albums tucked away somewhere. When I was younger (and a bit of a Hippy wannebe) I really liked M. S. Subbulakshmi and would play one of her albums into the night to the dismay of my apartment neighbors. They would crank up one of the local classical music stations in defiance but i would then tune to the same channel to utterly confuse. Rebel youth! I've gotten nicer in my old age....kinda.

Honestly, the westernization of Yoga, has separated it from it's spiritual roots, which saddens me. It is not just some new age exercise routine. There is a culture and history behind it which is often ignored and/or glossed over.
