1/18 Gym! Yoga advice pls!?❤️

Monday, January 19, 2015

i finally went back last night! It's been months and oh my gosh it felt great. I was only there an hour but completed 3 miles on the treadmill. Old routine: 20 minute treadmill 10 minute on this machine that I cannot find the name of. Not a rower; it doesn't work the legs as well. Focuses on shoulders and arms. Reminds me of doing arm circles with resistance. 30-40 minutes on elliptical 20 on bike 5-10 in eucalyptus room (WAY better than a sauna!) Soon I'll get back to this. 💜 I want to add in yoga of some sort? I've dealt with so much depression and severe anxiety for 4+ years. My dad left a week before my 17th birthday. So I'm still hurting from that and this living situation I've been put into makes everything worse. I have no friends to go to. I moved 3 hours away. There's my mom, little sister, & bestfriend (who lives 2,117 miles away.) There's all this tight tension built inside me, it physically hurts. I think adding in yoga may help. If anyone has any suggestions, advice, apps, or plans, that would be lovely. 💜✨

    Xramonawestfal,

    Sad to hear you are going through these moments. Nothing in life is permanent. Also this will pass. Hope you can cop with it.

    Last 12 years I have been practicing different types of yoga. There is one style for everyone. Just get out there and try it. I would advise to find a gym with a teacher. The group will give you more energy to get over the threshold.

    Lately I have been experiencing with Iyengar Yoga. I think this is a good start. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iyenga
    r_Yoga. At a given point when you have mastered the asanas of this of any other yoga you decide to start with, bring it a bit further, deeper inside you, closing your eyes while practicing, following only the voice of the instructor and use it as a meditation form. I am sure it will help you a lot.

    Best regards,

    Edgar
