Want to lose weight? Try yoga!

Posted: March 24, 2014 at 6:45 pm

Whether it is in doing the poses statically or dynamically, you have to challenge yourself.

Initially, for a few weeks, you may maintain a soft practice.

But over weeks, the practice must increasingly become challenging.

This does not mean doing many poses in one session.

Rather, whatever you do, it must be done to the point where the muscles involved are completely challenged.

An example of this: On the first few days, you may do the cat stretch five times or so.

After that, you should increase the set to about 30 each time.

The same goes for whether it is a simple or a tough pose. Or whether it is done dynamically or statically.

Either way, it must be held longer or done more times.

This is the only way for the weight loss to be sustained.

Yoga and your period

Posted: at 6:45 pm


without comments

Even in this day and age when people generally are more aware of their body and how exercise benefits it, many are still conservative when it comes to exercising when you have your period. This is also true when it comes to yoga. Some say that it isnt good to practice yoga when you have your period because it may affect the flow. My opinion is that you have to listen to your own body.

Over the years Ive been teaching, Ive had students who swear that yoga has eased their dysmenorrhea or cramps, irregular periods, backaches, and even the anxiety and tension associated with PMS. Ive also had students who chose to forego sessions when their first or second day was particularly strong. It really depends on the person and the kind of period she has but the bottom line is that yoga can help if youre willing to let it. Today were discussing asanas that may offer relief by helping the body to relax and others that can ease the strain.

Head to Knee Pose

1. Sit in a Figure-4 pose. Bend the knee to the side and place the sole of the foot. Stretch the trunk up, but keep the spine neutral, not arched. Open the chest and rotate the shoulders back and down.

2. Lean forward, maintaining the angle of the spine and head on the way down. Support your head against a bolster or pillow placed over your extended leg. Stay for one to two minutes, then repeat on the other side.

If you feel any pain in your lower back, adjust your position higher up by adding thicker pillows or by leaning against a chair positioned directly in front of you and over your leg.

ON ANY GIVEN SUNDAY Free Lake Eola yoga class draws eclectic crowd | Video

Posted: at 6:45 pm


without comments

Every Sunday, when it doesn't rain, yogis gather at Lake Eola under the big oak tree.

Instructor Frank De Le Cruz, in a voice low and soothing, guides 160 men and women practicing yoga on a grassy lawn at Lake Eola Park.

"Keep breathing, keep lifting. Let the knees float to the left. Take a few moments to honor your body. Maybe sip in a little air and sigh it out. Relax the arms, relax the forearms, relax the hands. Take some time to absorb the moment."

The Sunday morning outdoor yoga class has grown to as many as 218 participants since October. The crowd is as eclectic as the yoga mats are colorful: white, black, Hispanic, Asian, young and middle-aged, mothers with children, a father and daughter, nimble longtime devotees and first-time walk-ins.

Sunday was the first time for Tony Mix, dressed in blue jeans, who saw the group yoga exercise while at the Lake Eola farmers market a week ago and decided to give it a try.

"It's the community feel to it. You are enjoying the outdoors. And the other thing is it's free," said Mix, 34.

Nearby was Nicole Irvine, a 29-year-old yoga instructor who likes the idea of the open-air, open-to-all exercise class.

"It's accessible to everyone," Irvine said. "There should not be anyone who feels uncomfortable."

And that's pretty much the idea behind Yoga In Lake Eola Park, said organizers Ryan Lynch and Amanda Reh: return yoga to the outdoors where it belongs and open it to everyone. Too often, yoga classes can be expensive and restricted to indoor studios, they said.

"Yoga was meant to be done outside," said Lynch, 33, who started practicing yoga in 2007 as an antidote to stress, depression, addiction and weight gain. "The spirit of it is anyone who comes can join up."

Yoga by Numbers brings poses to people

Posted: at 8:47 am


without comments

BOW, N.H. Combine Twister, paint-by-numbers and the ancient Hindu practice of breath control, meditation and poses, and you get Yoga by Numbers.

The approach complete with a numbered mat was designed by a Boston woman whose own health scare inspired her to put yoga in reach for people with physical limitations, tight schedules or other roadblocks to traditional practice.

The oversized yoga mat is dotted with big, numbered circles that look like the target in a rifle scope. The accompanying DVD gives true yoga beginners those who wouldnt know an up-dog from a Chihuahua a step-by-step roadmap to learn the poses at their own pace.

Elizabeth Morrow was an athlete, a skier and soccer player who, two years ago, found herself hospitalized with a right lung full of blood clots, the lower lobe completely collapsed. When she was strong enough to start exercising again, she found even the easiest of yoga classes too taxing. She didnt have the stamina for an hour, couldnt hold the poses the way the instructor wanted.

So, the 32-year-old started thinking of ways to make it easier, more convenient and even more fundamental than the myriad DVDs already on the market.

I was thinking about a paint-by-number kit where you dont need to be Picasso or van Gogh, you just follow what they tell you and youll come out with something, she said. I just wanted something that felt really accessible and doable for people. The image of the mat just popped into my head: Wow, I can do yoga by numbers as well.

The DVD tells users exactly which circle to put their hands and feet in and allows for advancement to more challenging poses.

Yoga by Numbers has been compared to Twister, the popular game with giant colored circles, spinning wheel and crazy, cross-limbed poses. But Morrows cool with that, even when it comes from critics.

I think its awesome when they have that reaction because to me, that means they get it and they know how to use it, said Morrow, a certified yoga instructor.

Morrow has sold to people who live far from a yoga studio, those with tight schedules who need to squeeze in practice whenever they can, and people with health conditions. The National Institutes of Healths National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine reports that recent studies of people with chronic low-back pain suggest yoga can help reduce pain and improve function. Other research shows regular practice might reduce heart rate, blood pressure and stress and may help relieve anxiety and depression.
