  1. Until you get your answer...I've found that sleeping on a soft mattress (or laying on a couch without firm support) kills my back. I thought I had a bad back, until I stopped watching TV on my couch, now it's repaired. Legs up the wall and restorative back bend might be good exercises (do them for five minutes each daily)
  2. try shopping at Victoria's Secret

  5. You're 25 and you're starting "ridiculously late"? I started at 56, I have shoes older than you. Everyone starts inflexible, welcome to the club. Explore yin poses, slow deep poses that are held for long periods of time...they'll help improve your flexibility.

  7. Most yogis respect and admire effort. It's fun to watch a young, lithe, physically fit, trained gymnast perform in class...but it's impressive to watch an older person with limited flexibility grow and develop their practice.
  8. It can mean anything. It's a compliment...what does it mean when someone says "s/he's a beautiful person"? (on Facebook, it seems that every picture posted gets a few "beautiful" replies) It can mean...you're results are amazing..or maybe your efforts are impressive (even if the results aren't perfect)...or maybe your poses are expressive and fluid...or it could mean the person is beautiful and wants to share their beauty
  9. Listen to your body. If you're feeling lightheaded, please don't push it. There are certain practices (yin) that are less active or physically demanding. Please see blog entries http://yogabycandace.com/blog/yin-yoga-sequence-for-stress and http://yogabycandace.com/blog/free-yin-yoga-video See also Candace's Meditation video

  11. There's no right or wrong in yoga. Yoga is your personal journey, where you understand get to know and work with your body. I will never be able to clasp my hands behind my back (cow faced pose)...I guess my shoulders aren't constructed the same way as others, so would your instructor say I'm not doing it right or not getting the full experience? If you breath through your mouth, that's okay, trust me, I breath through my nose, but when I need to breath through my mouth, nothing changes My advice, find a new instructor (and fast), one who understands how to get you to work with your limitations. There are many instructors out there...this one isn't the best for you
  12. 5? I get to my office around 5, so I can get to the nearby gym when it opens at 6 I haven't slept past 5 in a long time
  13. I'm not a mom, but why don't you set your alarm clock to wake up a half hour earlier (or set up a play date with a neighbor to keep him occupied)?
  14. I removed the link on your post. If you want to see what 'normal yoga gear prices' are, you might want to consider searching Amazon.com
