  1. Great Yoga workout after I woke up today for about 40 minutes. Dripping sweat  :) .  But that was not what I wanted to say.  What can one do during idle time when not on the mat? Well yesterday while brushing my teeth, standing around. I decided to do something Yoga related while do that boring task. I chose to do a balancing posture, "Warrior III", holding for about 15 seconds each side. See, it can be done, anytime, anyplace.  No I do not have time excuses hehe.

  2. Today's post highlights the progress a few of you made during this project - feel free to check it out and share with friends! Also, if you have images you want to share of your own progress, use an app like pic stitch to sew them together and feel free to post on the YBC Facebook page or here if you like! I'd love to see side by sides! 

     

     

    Possibly! The January one will be different but equally as fun, promise!  :D

    Woohoo! Sitting here in a chair at work on break cross legged working on keeping tilted forward and back straight. Always time to do something  :)

  3. Reading some of the above posts about husbands doing Yoga in secret begs some questions.

     

    Why do we as men feel we have to do Yoga in secret?

    I do it at home, yet do not allow anyone to see me doing it.  The whole family knows I do it, I even talk about it and promote it...but behind closed doors I go.

     

    Does it seem that we are somehow less of a man or something? or being perceived less manly? 

    Why do we fear going to a class? I know I do, but cannot put a finger on as to why. I never feared going to Aerobic classes filled with mostly women in the past. So why...shrug.

  4. Yesterday I went I did one of Candace's before bed routines and went right to sleep. I sleep days so night's and mornings are reversed. When I woke up I did one of her morning videos before getting something to eat. Later I went through Sun Salutations A and B then worked on some hip openers I found on Candace's Blog.  While I am work I work on forward folds through out the night. When I am on lunch break like right now, I sit in that cross legged pose(name escapes me) switching which leg is on top, I can keep my pelvis tilted forward so I do not slump by pushing my lower back further into the chair. I wish I had the flexibility I had when I was a kid when I could put my foot behind my head hehe, no place even close to that.

  5. Haha. Thanks for all your advice guys! He's not big into sports, but used to play a lot of football and I think he'd really appreciate the discipline of yoga.

     

    Might start him on one of Candace's youtube videos and go from there.

     

    I'll let you know how I get on... :24:

    A lot of professional football players do Yoga now.  Also, our High School Football teams do Yoga as well and is promoted in Youth football. We as men have to get over this fear of being in the "so-called" woman's workouts like Yoga being that it was invented by men in the first place.  Now I have my own fears about going to class, but I do it at home as a beginner. At some point I need to face my fears as I know I'll need some form of instruction to help me get better.

  6. I'll do some sort of cardio to get warmed up.  I generally do my workouts and beginning Yoga practice in my garage. Here in Oregon it can get fairly cold in there in the mornings.  Once I get warmed and break a sweat, then I am set.  Before I do any bendy stretchy things I have to be warm.   : :)

  7. I was first introduced to Yoga when I started doing P90X. That program has one do Yoga(Yoga X) once a week and Stretch X on the 7th day.  I had never considered Yoga before until that point. I had been playing around off and on with it, but I want to turn it into something I do everyday as I get older. So I am now committing to a 30 day challenge that has 15 per day and I am also doing before bed and after I wake up routines by Candace.  I hope to expand my practice to longer times once I get past the 30 days.  I have no set schedule as I work nights and on weekends it is all about the family.  I'll get there, just a matter of time :-)  I did buy a new mat that was recommended by Candace, blocks and strap to further my growth.
