    Yoga, anyone?

    Hey Everyone,

    So I just committed to go fully Primal, my first day was yesterday!

    I am interested in how many of you Blueprinter's practice yoga, and if so, how many of you consider it your move slow aspect of your Fitness routing, or do you do more vigorous types of yoga and consider it as a WOD.

    I like Power Yoga, which incorporates a lot of body weight training, as well as relaxing aspects.

    Just curious if there are any other Primal Yogi's and how you incorporate it into your daily life!

    I practice Iyengar yoga.
    I also do kettle bells and heavy weights and i consider them my LHT workout.
    My yoga is more for the body mind aspect.

    It is not the main focus of my workouts but I incorporate it every week or so.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    I love yoga and count as both play and moving slowly. Depending on the class, it can be considered LHT as well. Anyone who would argue otherwise hasn't really had to feel the wrath that certain forms of yoga can deliver!

    Sohpie: Couldn't agree more, some forms of yoga that incorporate lifts and inversions are INTENSE. I know the importance of Lifting Heavy and Sprinting too, but I definitely love me some yoga

    I do about 10 minutes of yoga poses about 4 times a week. Nothing too fancy, as I have hypermobile joints.

    I consider it meditation/play.

    Ditto, never heard of that, that's awesome. His career has lasted about 6 years longer than expected, perhaps that is why.

    Yoga is pretty good. It's something even those with a lot of weight to lose can get into easily, and when done first thing in the morning can definitely pick you up and get you going. For whatever reason (probably the low level endorphin rush), you feel better after doing it, and that is not a bad thing. I try to do 30 mins in the morning, and even if it isn't 30 minutes of climbing everest, it's 30mins I'm not in bed or on the couch; can't be all bad.

    Now, if there was a shaquille o'neal yoga DVD, I'd buy that. He's hilarious.

    I did a little bit of Bethenny Frankel Skinnygirl Yoga early this year. Eh, it's OK.

    I occasionally do Ashtanga yoga; I see it as low intensity work - but it really depends on what shape YOU are in.

    Yoga, for me, is an addition to my training; not something I see as a workout in itself.

    I love yoga - it's one of the best bodyweight forms of exercises there is.

    Those who scoff at it have either never tried it, or haven't tried it properly. It is far from easy and my muscles always know about it the next day.
