Dear Yoga,

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry I neglected you for so long.

I’m sorry I secretly thought you were really boring.

I’m sorry I didn’t close my eyes and sit still during meditation.

I’m sorry I didn’t think you could strengthen and tone my muscles.

I’m sorry I let that huge dude in the white pants who kept grunting with each pose, scare me away from class.

I’m sorry I was afraid to admit I didn’t like you, because it seemed like yet another blogger fail.

Thank you for taking me back. As it turns out, I just needed Jillian Michaels to help kick my butt into yoga-shape.

It’s not the 30-day Shred… but I’m pretty sure my body is going to be sore tomorrow.

Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown""” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>This dvd is great if you’re looking to get the benefits of yoga (like flexibility, balance, toned muscle) but can’t stand the “slow” parts (for me, that’s the sitting and breathing with my eyes closed.) There are two levels, 30 minutes each, and they do a great job of incorporating cardio with yoga movements. (Think lots of lunging and movement into poses.) I can get my yoga on without feeling like I’m slacking off. I didn’t think level 2 was that much more difficult than level 1, but its nice to have a variety.

Besides, I want to be able to take awkward, blurry pictures like this one, when I’m like 60.

Yoga, I think this is the start of a beauitful relationship.

How do you feel about yoga? Love it? Hate it? Never tried it?
