Day 46 – Gassy

Friday, March 12th, 2010
Standing Head to Knee 2-22-10

Standing Head to Knee 2-22-10

Okay, so maybe one of the benefits of evening yoga is that you aren’t as gassy as you are in the morning.  I’ve actually had weird digestive problems ever since I started doing Yoga regularly, which makes me wonder if I possibly am working things out.  Anyway, I had a lot of veggies for dinner last night and it was BRUTAL trying to make sure I didn’t embarass myself today by letting out any gas.  I know it might be gross to talk about, but seriously it was my focus of concentration today. 

Standing Head to Knee Pose

Standing Head to Knee Pose

Today’s instructor was Aaron, who I usually tune out because he is so out of touch with practice, especially on how long to hold postures and some of the final breathing.  The final breathing actually takes a lot of practice with your diaphragm and this guy doesn’t have the practice so the final breathing that is faster gets all jacked up.

Today’s pose is Standing Head to Knee pose.  I am getting better at this one, but I usually only kick my foot out in the 90 minute classes because there are two rounds of the posture in that class, and I prefer not to hurt myself the other way.  This is one posture that I really hope to master come December.  I really like this posture.  It takes an incredible amount of endurance and strength and reminds me of Field Hockey in a way.  I think because of the strength and endurance that you have to have.  Oh, yes, many of you don’t know that Field Hockey is my favorite sport and I only wish that it was played here more consistently.

Here’s the side view.  I know that bologna spot is hot.  Stop.  I love how I don’t think that my knees are hyper-extending, but it is clear that it is here in this profile shot.

Oh, I forgot to mention the other day in the 4:30pm class there was this really hot yoga girl.  What makes for a hot yoga girl?  Well, for me, they are super toned, gorgeous in appearance (in the sense that they seem real and beautiful at the same time) and totally into their practice.  I was in awe.  Some day, my friends, some day.

I wanted to get recommendations from you all for yoga pants or tops that you like.  I don’t think I will bust out the tops any time soon, but I could probably use some new pants.  Oh, BTW,  one of my biggest fears is that my pants are going to split (the seam is right along my ass crack) and since I don’t wear underwear (gross maybe, but I wear the pants for 1-2 hours and then wash them immediately so no biggie) it would be REALLY embarassing.  It cannot happen!

I’ll leave you with the photo from 1-8-10.  Namaste.

Loss Weight Yoga

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

If you are overweight and have tried all the diet plans and weight loss programs with little success, try loss weight yoga, which is considered the safest and most reliable method of losing weight. Most of us have tried and failed miserably in losing weight by following stupid diet plans and programs that only succeed in making the human body ill. Yoga, which is one of the most ancient forms of exercise, combines both physical and spiritual aspects and helps you achieve not just a healthy body but also spiritual contentment.

There are a number of postures in yoga that stretch your body and increase your flexibility and strength. All these stretches help burn a lot of fat over a period of time and you will start losing weight and gaining confidence. There are also hot yoga girl videos which will help you learn the various poses in a simple but effective manner.

There are a number of free yoga positions that can be practiced both by beginners and experienced yoga practitioners. There are a number of positions that can be done standing, sitting or lying down on the yoga mat. It is very important that you maintain the correct breathing technique while doing any yoga asana. Different yoga poses target different parts of the human body and if you practice them diligently, the results are bound to be great. It is one of the best ways of losing weight.

Ashtanga yoga and power yoga are considered the most effective forms of yoga which will help you achieve the dream of losing weight and regain your lost confidence. Yoga is a holistic way of shedding that excess weight that you hate, as it is not just a physical exercise but an all inclusive way of targeting your mind, body and soul.

Day 18 – Slacking

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

I am not slacking in yoga, but rather in writing on this blog.  I nearly let the entire day go by before I remember to type something!

I went to yoga today and then to my personal trainer and then spent the remainder of my morning and a decent part of the afternoon helping my mom with computers, her pets and her iPhone.  So it truly slowed me down in getting to my responsibilities of the day.  I always enjoy being with my mom, so it’s not a problem.

Bikram Triangle Pose

Bikram Triangle Pose

It’s ironic that today’s photo ends up being the Bikram Triangle pose (I am listing the daily photos in the Bikram yoga poses series – so that you know the order, as I am sure you are taking notes).  Anyway, today when I was doing the triangle I noticed that my belly had gone down!  YEAH!  Hello! On my way to becoming a hot yoga girl.

But don’t get too excited as my belly is still there and still reminding me of the work ahead of me, but I tell you what – having ten times more energy in class (because I am not taking toxic medication that is doing harm to my liver and kidneys) is really encouraging and gives me hope that I can get there some day soon.

I liked today’s class.  I am not sure why really…but one thing I was thinking about today in class was, “I wonder how many times instructors have seen my sweet ass camel toe.”  So those of you who are not aware of what camel toe is – it’s when your pants ride up into the creases of your vagina and what results for the onlooker is something similar to a camel’s toe.  HOT.  Smokin’ Hot! 

Instructors tell you not to figit, so I do my best not to pull my pants back down, but sometimes I cannot handle the appearance of my camel toe…which is something that never happens to me in regular pants…just my yoga ones.  So I sit in class wondering how many of them have seen it and then wonder if they wonder if I am aware of it or if they even notice.  It provides for some entertainment for me while in some of those postures.  In fact, sometimes my thoughts in yoga remind me a lot of the game, Pong, where the ball bounces around and around and you have a little thing that you have to line up with the ball so that it will continue to bounce around.  My thoughts are the ball and the little bar is reality.  Weird stuff.  I probably didn’t explain it right, but I am not sure if I care.  It’s late and I am tired and I just told the world that I have camel toe.

On another note, I cannot believe that January is almost over.  Two more days and 1 month is done for me for Yoga 2010…11 months to go.  Nuts.

Welcome to Yoga2010.com!

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Welcome to Yoga2010.com!  Yoga2010 is my journey through yoga in 2010.  I am a 30-year old female who lives in the midwest.  I have recently been deemed in remission from Graves Disease and have decided to claim my body again.

I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in 2002 and it was a long journey to recovery.  I ended up having insatiable cravings that made me gain too much weight.  In spite of my efforts to have great will power and self-control, the cravings took over and I gained a lot of weight. 

So, on November 7, 2009 when I was deemed in remission from Graves’ Disease, I started thinking about what I wanted to do to get the weight off.  I decided I would return to Yoga.

Standing Bow Pulling Pose
Dandayamana-Dhanurasana

I started doing Yoga in 2004 when a guy that I was dating broke up with me, and I needed something to clear my mind.  Interestingly enough, my cravings weren’t as bad then.  So I wasn’t as fat as I am now.  I will post a photo of me some day soon, so stay tuned to see my fatass.

 
Oh, I meant to mention that I go to a Hot Yoga studio where they do the 26 Bikram Yoga poses.  This pose (that I’m doing in the photo) is the Standing Bow Pulling Pose or “Dandayamana-Dhanurasana”.  I suppose in this photo I am in between a beginner yoga pose and an advanced yoga position.  I haven’t completely achieved the complete position, but by the end of 2010, I hope to do so.  Okay, really, if I cannot achieve it by 6 months into this year, what in the hell am I doing?
 
So, the reason I think I will be able to get to the maximum in that position is that my goal is to go do yoga 5 times a week.  I expect you guys to hold me to that!!  I want to go to a studio 5 times a week, but I can already tell you that I am not sure if that will always happen, so I am just going with 5x a week.
 
Today is January 1, but I am not starting until Monday, January 4, 2010.  Not to worry, I didn’t have too much to drink last night, but I don’t want to go to the studio today because they are only having one class that is at 10am and is free!!
 
If there is one thing I hate about yoga studio classes, it is a full class!  UGH!  Claustrophobia!  So I decided to wait until the week.  Also, I have that mindset that you work during the week and rest on the weekends, so I only want to do yoga Monday through Friday.  My hope is that I will want to do yoga on the weekends too…but for now, it is just on the week days.
 
Oh, which reminds me.  I have 3 websites, this is my fourth.  Actually, all my websites are blogs, or all my blogs are websites, however you want to say it.  I work to be proper and say the right things on my other websites since they are more professional, however, this one is for me…and my journey through yoga in 2010, so I will have typos, cuss words and other fallacies.
 
The thing is, folks, when it comes down to it, I am a really good person.  HOWEVER, I do criticize, I do cuss and by golly, I am way too blunt sometimes.  For those reasons, you might really enjoy reading this blog.  If that’s the case, please don’t hesitate to sign up for e-mail updates (upper right hand corner).  Also, I love comments!  Leave them below for me, please!  Please do join me on my journey to become a hot yoga girl in 2010!
