How many of you out there are working yoga into your routines?
I recently made a strong effort to practice some yoga a few times a week and I'm surprised the difference it makes!

I just started working yoga into  my routine two weeks ago. I'm amazed. I find it especially helpful to do in Hotel rooms after long flights/drives to get the blood flowing and help with Jetlag.

What program/guide/book/etc do you use? What do you find helpful?

 

I do a lot of stretching, but I have become increasingly curious about yoga.

you said it man. i get into a lot of awkward body positions through work so its key after long drives. When in do it in the morning i find i wake up much better.

I am lucky in that my other half is a yoga/zumba instructor, so she's my number 1 resource. Mark Devine (seal fit) has a couple of good flows that are free online. there's a lot of videos on youtube as well. i don't have any yoga books off hand but i'll check with the missus for you.

 

I'd recommend the yoga. It's made marked improvements for me.

 

Although i tend to stay away from the granola, crystal loving stuff.

The wife recommended Diamond Dallas Page's Yogas. Good for rehab and stays away from the more granola aspects.

Yeah... I don't mix well with hippies, so that's a good thing.

Probably like that time I passed out and started snoring at the end of a class she took me to. Great nap though! Woke up so refreshed

I just did a youtube search on "beginner yoga" and "Yoga BJJ"

 

i particulary like the videos by "Yoga with Adriene"

 

She has a 20 min beginner workout

 

 

and a 40 min beginner workout

 

 

I also like "Yoga workout for Jiu Jitsu with Prof. Flavio Almeida" by Fightmaster Yoga

 

 

Another thing i found interesting was Blackswan Yoga. 

 

http://www.blackswanyoga.tv/

 

basically it's a website where various yoga teachers give classes. you can preview each instructors free videos, then its $8 a month to follow that instructor. you can follow as many instructors as you want ($8 each) and change or add instructors at any time. it's cool because you can choose easier, more relaxed instructors in the beginning, then move on to more energetic instructors as your skill grows.

I've done P90X, as a program, about three times and enjoyed the yoga disc day. I've never done yoga outside of that application, however. It was nice, but I sweat more doing that than any other work out I have ever done. Odd.

Yoga can be a solid workout if you're doing things correctly. I've had some tough yoga classes in the past for sure
