Has anyone here seen Inhale with Steve Ross on the Oxygen channel? It’s the only yoga I’ve done. I want to take a yoga class, but I don’t know what kind to take. What kind of yoga is done on Inhale? Thanks.

that's hatha yoga.

any place you'd take a class would be more than happy to explain the class you were taking.

I have had some instructors read passages from Yoga books during the final resting pose. Has anyone read any good Yoga philosophy books that are not real 'deep'?

In class we were read "Be Cool To The Pizza Dude" by Sarah Adams.

For anyone who has done a bit of ashtanga vinyasa flow but can't remember the sequences well enough to do some good practise at home, I found this website that has mp3's of the teacher talking you through a routine...I've always thought about taping my teacher so this is pretty much ideal for me http://yogadownload.com/commerce/pro....asp?NUMBER=33 You add it to your cart as if you were going to purchase but they dont' ask you for credit card details or anything for this one (you do have to register though)

You have to buy them but there's one free 20minute workout and there's also a free pdf of the poses incase you don't recognise some of the names (http://yogadownload.com/20minsOfPower1.pdf). I've gone through the mp3 once and it seems great! Hope this helps someone

I keep wanting to take a Yoga class at my gym, but I chicken out and just do the stationary bike. I bike like 60 miles a week, but I think my body is used to it, because Im not losing weight anymore.

I dont want to do weights anymore, and Im not wanting to develop alot of muscle. But I would like to be more lean and toned. Would adding YOGA help with this?

To be more "lean and toned" you need to burn off fat. Essentially there's no such thing as toning, you just strip off the fat that covers the muscle so it's more apparant on your body. If your body is used to your current cardio routine you need to shake it up....either continue on the bike but work much harder, or try a different form of cardio. As soon as it gets easy, take it up another notch.

Yoga is good for giving that lean, toned look, but you'll still need to drop bodyfat to see the type of results it sounds like you want.

I'm having my first power yoga lesson on friday
Can anyone explain me a little about that?
The instructor told me I should try both samsara yoga and power yoga to see what I like best..so I''ll take samsara yoga the week after

but I don't know really what the difference is.
If anyone knows it would be much appreciated

The "power" part is marketing so it sounds like a workout. You'll be told to breathe in and out through your nose, you'll learn some basic poses (moving from one to the next) and be sore the next day.

Don't know what samsara yoga is so please let us know after you take it.

I started doing yoga this week and i've done it twice so far, but everytime when i'm in some positions, my foot/lower leg gets tingly and numb. My muslces don't feel pain or anything, so is this normal, or am i pushing myself too hard or doing the positions wrong?

Lately iīve been really curious about Yoga.

I have a friend that does Ashtanga Yoga, has anyone heard about it?

I have only done some Yoga exercises when i did Kung Fu as the heat up was with Yoga and i really liked it, although i have never been in a Yoga class only.

Assuming you don't have any prior injuries, shake out your foot and move it around. Engage it by spreading your toes. You don't get used to this stuff in a week so take it slow. Talk to your instrutor about it.

Absolutely. It's been mentioned in this thread a bit but the link you posted is the go-to place to begin to discover what it is. I think it's the purest form, it's accessible to anyone and a committed practice will change you in ways you won't believe.

But other types are cool too!
