No photos this time…just a little something I’d like to share with everyone.
Today I was lamenting to myself how much more I enjoy doing things like yoga or taking long walks rather than hitting the gym for a sweat inducing weight lifting session. I mean, it works for millions of people, and I do lift weights and go to the gym…but somehow, for me, it just feels wrong. Like, I don’t enjoy the exercise factor as much as I should…it becomes more of a routine and a thing to check off the daily “to-do” list. I was fretting about this this afternoon when the last thing in the whole world I felt like doing was going on the elliptical machine in my apartment gym.
So, I started googling yoga classes on your ipod and I found my salvation!!! Seriously!!!! The website is called www.yogadownload.com and it features dozens upon dozens of full length, instructional yoga classes that you download and can play via your mp3 player. The classes range from $1.95-$4.95 and are grouped in categories such as power yoga, bikram, hatha, relaxation, core….ect. I figured it was only 5 bucks to spare, so I went ahead and downloaded the 90 minute Baptiste power yoga class. OH.MY.GOD! I am so sore! I was sweating buckets on my floor! It was amazing. I don’t feel like I had that kind of workout in ages. The class as challenging, funny, meditative….everything I could have asked for and more. It ran circles around anything I could have done at the gym and was super challenging—I feel like I just had a fantastic workout! Because I am so obsessed with it, I went back and just bought 4 more classes! I bought a morning class, a lunchtime one, a detox one and a core one…2 are 30 minute classes and 2 are 60 minute classes because I thought I could do these instead of bust my butt and go to the gym every morning before work.
So yeah—just wanted to share! I’m pretty picky when it comes to yoga and I give this a huge thumbs up! Yall need to seriously check this out….
