There are so many forums to choose from, I didn't know which one to add these to, so I just picked here! I hope that's okay!

 

Anyway, I chatted with a few people about yoga practice when I joined, so I figured that I'd share these pictures of me, which were taken yesterday by an awesome photographer (nsoroma79.com). I love the way they came out, and had only a vague idea that my back looked that good. Hahaha.

You look wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing! What does a typical week look like for you in terms of workouts?

 

Thank you (and everyone else who commented so far)!

 

Right now my week looks like this, but it changes depending on how busy I am. I am a little overwhelmed right now with my schedule, but I'm trying to make it work!

 

Monday - Elliptical at the gym for 45 mins-1 hour while reading/watching tv.

Tuesday - Power yoga class for 1.5 hours.

Wednesday - Power yoga class for 1.25 hours (beginners class where I have been "modeling" the poses for the new students, but still do the class right along with them in addition to demoing new poses).

Thursday - Power yoga for 1.5 hours.

Friday - BREAK!

Saturday - Yoga teacher training, where we typically spend 1 hour to 1.5 hours "practice teaching." So, most of that time I will be the "student" and doing the practice taught by my fellow trainee. Then, power yoga class for 1.5 hours after training.

Sunday - Power yoga class for 1.5 hours.

 

Crazy! The amount of yoga will calm down in December when I am done with training, I think. Well, the amount I do at the studio, anyway, because it is expensive, but the classes I'm taking now are included in my training tuition. And hopefully by that time I will be teaching, too! Then, I can return to the gym more, since I am still paying for that, as well! I need more hours in my day!!!

Either black and white or color works for me. I am getting the disk this week from the photographer with the rest of the pictures on it, so maybe she has sent versions of the b/w ones in color. I don't know! It's hard to decide which to submit. The deadline is soon, as well, right? If there is any one that you guys like in particular, let me know!

I do some Yoga, too. So I know that it is hard work doing it as good as you do!

Is there a reason why you favor power yoga (beside it obviously creates a absolutely fantastic body)? Do you meditate as well?

Maybe you also have advice for me how to enhance my lotus flexibility?

 

Best regards,

 

David

Hi David! What type of yoga do you typically practice? I was really drawn to power yoga, as I love love love the sequencing. There is always a pose and a counter pose. It is a GREAT style for athletes and is an awesome workout. It is a western style, but does not lose it's meditative qualities. There are still tons of spiritual elements to power yoga which most teachers bring into their classes. It still contains a lot of the "ancient" elements of yoga, while being very relatable to me (someone from the western world). I just love it!!! If you ever get the chance, pick up "Journey Into Power" by Baron Baptiste. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did!!!

 

You are looking for hip openers, I guess? Try pigeon, double pigeon, or frog pose! Also, doing a dead bug/happy baby pose will open your hips! If you don't know all the names, you should be able to look them up on yogajournal.com's pose finder! You can also go there and just type hip opening as your indication and it will give you a load of answers! Best of luck!
