Yoga as main exercise?
June 4, 2010 5:45 PM Subscribe
I started doing yoga on my own a couple months ago, using a book, and I love the way it makes me feel and look. I'm interested in it as a main form of exercise and would like to hear from people who practice yoga as their main exercise. What is your yoga routine like, what kind of yoga do you do, and do you feel fit from mainly doing yoga? Any particular recommendations? (classes, books, DVD's, etc). Thanks!

I like walking and swimming as well, but feel that if I can get a yoga routine going every morning (as I have been) it can be a great lifelong practice. It's something I can do on my own and in my room (though I know classes are helpful and I'd like to try them too) I am looking to hear from people's views on practicing yoga as a main (or sole) form of physical activity and whether it has helped you achieve your goals for health, fitness, relaxation, and/or weight loss/maintenance (all goals of mine, though I am not necessarily looking to lose lots of weight.)
