    Yoga Yoga Yoga

    Post  kat on Fri Oct 30, 2009 2:32 am

    May just extend my surfing season and keep me out of injury dry-dock. I've been going along for about 6 weeks now to beginners classes - I went to a session the other night that was run by a 60-ish year old woman, first time in her class and I thought to myself 'no worries mate, she'll be nice and gentle', well b ugger me - I ended up bent backwards in a hog-tied banana shape with someone sitting on soles of my feet leaning back and pulling my upper arms further back behind me, JUST IN CASE I wasn't getting enough of a stretch affraid affraid

    And the best news of all is that I felt no pain or discomfort the next day. Beggars belief really!

    So who here yoga's? Any stretches that don't involve hog ties or bananas that you can recommend for getting in good bendy surfing shape?

    Well considering yoga gear doesn't have an awful lot of hidey places for things like extra butt cheeks, I'm happy to report there's only been an average of 2 butt cheeks per person I've seen so far Very Happy

    And reporting too that there's several men that turn up regularly, including a couple of surfer boys I know. So it's not just a girly game, it's good for every body it seems Very Happy

    LOVE Bikram yoga... aint done it in forever.

    often do a few basic poses as part of a stretching routine...

    Yoga = good.

    I have low blood pressure so I've never been game to do Bikram. Plus it's a cost thing - I pay $55 for 12 weeks of as much yoga as I can manage (I'm managing to get along twice a week at present), but if I went to Bikram it'd cost me $15 a pop. Ouch.

    yeah, agreed... I just really dig the cleansing of the heat yoga...

    but the beauty of yoga is it's FREE. all you need is a space big enough to pose in.
