Since I will not be continuing to attend the awesome Yoga classes at work, I looked through the web searching for some good yoga classes that I can take that are close by to my house.
Gold’s Gym (which is right across the road) offers what seems to be a decent Ashtanga yoga class. I am planning to take a couple of trial classes. But what really bothers me is the timing. 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM is really not my workout time. That’s the time I set aside for :
- Boiling the milk
- Drinking my juice
- Having bath
- Waking up my daughter
- Getting her ready to school – milk, bath, breakfast
- Getting myself ready to work
and so on…
OK…this post is not about my morning routine…but you get the picture, a 6:00 AM yoga class just does not fit into my morning routine.
So, while ruminating on how to accommodate yoga (I really don’t want to give it up as I have come a long way and it has become an integral part of my fitness routine), I came across this site – http://www.yogadownload.com/.
This site allows you to download a variety of yoga videos that you can then do at home at your convenience. You have to pay for some of the more advanced videos. However, you can also download a few 25 minute sessions for free.
I am not sure how much these videos will substitute for an actual hour’s class with an instructor. Not to mention the fact, that it is very difficult for me to get a room to myself to play the videos and do the moves.
However, something is better than nothing, right ?
So, a lazy, rainy weekend afternoon might just catch me doing yoga instead of simply blogging about it 🙂
