How long have you been practicing Yoga?
I've practiced yoga for the past five years. With retirement three years ago, my practice became more regular.
What is your favorite pose?
I hope to one day be able to say crow, but since I can't do that yet, I'll say tree. :-)
What changes have you experienced in your body/life from doing Yoga?
I've increased my strength and flexibility, decreased my bouts with lower back pain and have learned the incredible power of the breath, whether it's to help me through a difficult asana or to help calm me when off my mat. I also have much better posture when sitting or standing, which I think helps alleviate back pain.
What advice do you have for someone who is just starting Yoga?
Three things come to mind. Try to establish a regular practice. At times, that may mean practicing at home, but with the support of your fellow yogis and the wonderful instructors at Whole Body, regular class attendance will greatly benefit your practice. Try a variety of classes offered at the studio. I think you'll get more of the benefits of yoga and you'll keep your practice from becoming stagnant or routine, and finding classes you enjoy will help you establish a regular practice. Don't get caught up in comparing yourself to others. Everyone's practice looks a little different and the important thing is that you're on your mat. Close your eyes if necessary! :-)
