Yoga and Pilates

I was surprised that there was not a thread about either of these. They are so big.

Anyone practice either? What type of yoga do you love?

Well, my husband has found a new passion in hot yoga. He absolutely LOVES it. I like yoga, but had a very hard time with the heat, and the studio's normal temperature classes are different.

I enjoy my Windsor Pilates DVDs from years ago, but rarely do them now. I should, though. I love what it does for me. Hmm, definitely something I should work on doing at this point.

I do power yoga once a week and gentle yoga once a week at the Y for an hour each. Honestly, I do not love yoga. I watch the clock the entire time. But it is good for me. I am more flexible at almost 46 than I was at 16. I have piriformis syndrome and in order to keep running, I have to keep stretching and working on strength and yoga does the trick. What I do like about yoga is that the instructors always stress that this is your practice and to do what YOU can do. So I can challenge myself in some areas and back off in others when I need to. That really helps when you have a back that doesn't always cooperate.

I started out really liking bikram then went into more Power Yoga heated, but now I found I like more of a slow flow practice, some deep stretching and gentle classes. I really love Yin Yoga right now too.

Ashtanga, 6 days a week (well, not today, full moon!), and it is now the only exercise I do. I am completely devoted to the practice. I had to quit running because of repetitive stress injuries and was looking for way to stay fit without the pounding. To be honest all those years of running made me incredibly inflexible, so it has been challenging working out all of the kinks, but it is coming

I do yoga videos at home on my "rest" day, the day after my long run, and sometimes before I run.

I have done those Windsor Pilates videos! They are very effective. I need to pull mine out again too.

My gym offers the following and I try to go as time allows:

Monday - Yin yoga
Tues - Mat pilates
Wed - power yoga
Thurs - Mat Pilates
Fri - Asana yoga with meditation
Sat - Power yoga
Sun - Power yoga and Hot Power yoga

I love Hot power yoga so I try to practice that atleast once a week.

I find yoga & pilates are good compliment to my running.

I took up yoga last week and I LOVE how much it stretches me out, especially after a jog/walk. I'll do 35 minutes of jogging/walking and then when I get home, I'll stretch out with some yoga. On my days of no jogging, I'll do about 10-20 minutes of yoga just to stretch and clear my mind. I've noticed a difference in how well I feel for my jog the next day.
