I am really liking the Yoga exercises.
I have done it for six days now and can feel a definite difference in many areas.
Of the six tapes that came in the set, there are a couple that I will be using regularly.
The beginner one was fine for the first couple of days, but once I learned the poses, I was ready for a few more that one of the other tapes provides.
I find the exercises smooth and very stress-free.
I don't think I will ever be as flexible as the instructor, and the extra weight doesn't help either.
It's hard to bend deeply into many of the poses, but I am hoping that improves with time.
I have a couple of blocks and a belt that came with the mat I bought many years ago for my morning exercise routine.
It is good to be able to use them.
With my weight and my age, I don't see me doing the inverted poses or the back bends, but many of the seated, standing, and kneeling ones are very doable.
I will post more updates as I continue to learn and hopefully improve with this new exercise.
