How is Yoga going?

Horrendously! That’s how its going.

I can’t say for certain whether I’m doing it right like how the Youtube masters are doing it. But whatever I’m doing. I can tell ya. It’s completely the opposite of what I thought Yoga was going to be.

I’m pretty sure most of us have the misconception that yoga is easy. Just holding poses and staying there, all about meditating etc. NO. From what I gather. The poses are just a gateway to a world of pain. It’s all about strengthening every strengthenable (yes, it’s not a word. I created it) part of your body.

Cue shattering game show buzzer.

The poses may be easy to do. On their own. But the pain starts when they’re just the first step to transitioning to the next pose, and it is THAT, holding the positioning, crunching your fats to maintain the pose that starts to bring in the pain. Woo.

From doing a few sessions of Yoga. My take away is that my legs are freak ass weak. 10mins into the session they start to tremble. Though sitting down with my legs straight I can touch my toes no problem, doing that same thing on my back, is another story.

But I shall keep at it. We’ll see how it goes. I’m pretty satisfied based on the amount of sweat I’m producing. Makes me feel like I had a good workout. How many calories am I really burning though. Can’t say for sure.

Another point I’d like to make after I’ve collected my Yoga mat. It’s great. It really helps a lot, because exercises laying on your back without any kind of protection is just pure torture and could be doing more harm than good. However! I feel like since we’re so advanced in the new age and shit. The mat should be kind of Anti-Slip. I mean it’s already difficult as it is, doesn’t help when your hands or feet are sliding working against you. Even not for the whole mat. Just the top and bottom portion where we normally put our hands and feet. After all the mat is to “shield” us from injury, mainly on our back.

 

Till next time!

  1. Hilarious! This is all so true for me as well. I have attempted it in the past and found it torture. I’m getting a little in my cardio video every day now and with work it has been getting better. I still am not sure what to do with my fat in some positions.

      I think that’s the thing about Yoga, it really works every muscle.
      Another good alternative would be Muay Thai, loads of punches & kicks. Incorporates twists & turns as well.
      Comparatively to Yoga, it’s a lot of cardio for sure, but in terms of training discipline & endurance, Yoga is in another league.
