I recently took up yoga. I’m not naturally the sportiest of people, but I like to try and stay healthy. I can’t afford a gym membership so I tend to stick to DVDs I can stick on at home. I usually go for aerobic/dance style work outs, but recently I picked out a yoga DVD instead. I have to admit that to start with, I wasn’t convinced. I’m used to jumping around to get my exercise, and it didn’t seem like I was doing much of anything. I was wrong. In just over a month, I’ve noticed real benefits. I’m more flexible, more toned, calmer and the niggly pain in the bottom of my back has eased.
I know it may sound a little dramatic, but yoga has changed my life. I try and do at least a little most days and I increasingly find myself looking forward to it – something I never thought I would say about exercise!
