I got very excited about Yoga few months ago. I’ve had this back ache for a good few years now and its work related, mainly due to standing for long hours in a bad posture! Anyway, couple of people suggested yoga for this type of back ache and I decided to give it a go. After researching for a bit on the net, I bought Yoga Journal's Yoga for Beginners with Patricia Walden and a yoga mat from ebay and I was set to go. I watched the DVD once before doing any of the exercises and thought to myself this is easy, I mean how hard can it be? Its about an hour of different stretches with relaxing music. Patricia’s instructions are also helpful even though she says things like “soften your eyes” and “use your front thigh muscle to lift your kneecap” which frankly does not mean anything to me!
Now I exercise regularly, go to Gym twice a week and play Badminton most weeks, so I am not that unfit but let me tell you Yoga is hard work. Those simple stretches (Dog Pose, Proud Warrior..) are not easy. As it is the case with me and any type of routine, I did yoga two or three times back then and the yoga kit sat in the corner of the room until yesterday. We (E & I) decided to do a bit of yoga yesterday as our Gym membership has not gone through yet. After rearranging furniture in the living room we started the exercise and I have to admit I quite enjoyed it and probably do it again today.
