Yoga For Beginners

how did you initialy lost all that weight? (i saw a 'before' picture/post) just eating right and doing yoga or.. what? :)

Mostly because it’s in my metabolism, to be honest. That photo was taken when I was in 10th grade so that’s a little under 4 years ago or so. I lost the 11 lbs total over a span of time before I was a healthy eater and I hardly did Yoga back then. I started eating healthy about a year ago, actually. Here’s the whole story on how I lost weight, all unintentionally.I lived with my dad on weekdays and mom on weekends and my dads’ house was, and still is, always stocked up on junk and that’s all I ate. I had frozen pizzas and hot pockets for midnight snacks, and drank tons of juice boxes, and literally all I ate on Sundays was fast food and junk from the gas station. After moving out of my dads’ house and fully into my moms’, I still ate the same but I ate less and I lost 5 pounds. Then over a year ago when I was dealing with my stomach problems from January-or -so to the beginning of July, I was eating a lot less junk and I brought my own food to school sometimes, and then in July I saw an urgent care doctor who told me to go gluten and dairy free and I had no idea what to do, and I was in my less-hungry phase (I hope you all understand what I’m talking about when I say that haha) and I pretty much only ate salad for a week and that was just really bad and I accidentally lost 6 pounds. I’m not sure when I’d lost it, if it was over the months or because I was told not to eat all the stuff I was used to, but that’s how I lost it all.But if you are aiming to lose weight, then yes, that’s how you want to do it. Eating right and exercise! (: I have a health for beginners page, and a yoga for beginners page (both that probably need updating but I’m too lazy to work on it) in the FAQ link if you need a bit of help (: read more..

do you do yoga every day?

I used to but I’ve been very slow with my practice lately. Like I said with working out more often when I’m fully in my new house, I’ll do the same with Yoga. I can’t not do yoga daily when I have a lovely backyard and sun room (: read more..

Sebastien Gendry-Laughter Yoga-Pilates Yoga-Aerial Yoga

Laughing yoga cultivates merry mindfulness
Members of the Laughter Yoga club practise laughing during morning exercise at a public park in Hanoi

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Can't touch your toes? Laugh it off. Laughter yoga, unlike Pilates yoga, water yoga, aerial yoga and other offshoots of the ancient eastern practice of uniting body and breath, doesn't aspire to sculpted arms and bendy backs. Laughter yoga just wants you to be happy. "You may not lose fat, but you will lose the idea that you're fat," said Sebastien Gendry, founder and executive director of the American School of Laughter Yoga. "People come because it's the exercise they can do and it makes them feel good," said Gendry, who founded the school in 2004. ... read more..

Body Types

You shouldn't wish society to accepts curvy over skinny or vice versa. That's NOT the answer. It should be about accepting all body types. Not that one is better than the other.

So you guys I have exciting news. Actually, I think I already told you that I got my license but the exciting part is that I can go to the gym whenever I want (when the car is here) and don’t have to rely on my mom to pick me up. I like to work out at night and she goes to bed around 8-9pm so now I can go while she’s asleep. Weewwwww. I need to get used to the gym quick so I don’t look like such a fool trying to pick a machine, and trying to figure out how it works lql. And I don’t think I told you guys that I’m moving (again) to a nicer area close to where I lived a bit over a year ago before moving here. The neighborhood is quiet and nice and there is cats everywhere (weeeee I LOVE cats) and I’m going to start roller blading again and probably not skateboarding again because I was never that great and won’t want to do that alone. But I will be buying a bike and will ride it around a lot. Since it’s such a nice area and it’s summer I’m going to try to go to bed early and get up earlier so I can go do these things early before it’s too hot. And I’ll spend a lot of time gardening and tending to the plans and doing yoga outside (because I’ll actually have a nice and more private yard) and I can do all of my reading outside in between the trees. I’ll take photos when I move there if anyone wants to see but I am excited about that.The escrow stuff should be done within a few days and we’ll be moving in a few weeks so I’ve got to really start packing. I only have one box of movies and books packed but I bought 6 books recently so those need to go somewhere, too haha. But yeah I’ll have lotsa activities to doooo!I should go do something productive, like pack I guess. If anyone wants to chit chat feel free to message me! Or you can add me on facebook I suppose, I am friends with internet friends on there. Just let me know if you add me, my link is in my personal blog and the link to that… I think it shows my icon in front of my icon so yeah. read more..
