Yoga as a workout????

on July 24, 2012

It always saddens me to see yoga considered just as a form of exercise ……. there’s so much more to discover.   It’s a shame so many classes don’t incorporte the pranayama, concentration and meditation that to me are a really important part of the practice.

It’s particularly an issue at gyms when you see classes billed as ‘yoga’ when they are really just another exercise class.  Take a read through this article from Yoga Journal …… http://blogs.yogajournal.com/goodlife/archives/2012/07/5-ways-yoga-is-not-just-for-fitness.html …. what do you think?

What do you know about the person that teaches the yoga class you go to?  What sort of qualification have they taken?  Check it out!
