You won't regret yoga and in fact it is such a unique experience for the body that you will notice an immediate result and enter a level of relaxation
that you have probably not known. There are numerous complete systems to try and I have borrowed from a few to create my own regimen.
I always thought this was a good series to try out, and it is really thorough:
For me, nothing else offers what yoga does. It is not only holistically healthy and relaxing, but it allows us to discover our deepest level of
relaxing, physically , mentally and spiritually. One is able to carry this new state into their everyday realities. It teaches us how to breathe
too, which many of us do wrong with shallow breathing.
I have found some instrumental, non-repetitive music really helps with the exercise. A class setting is a nice alternative, and a beginners regimen
may be best.
Best wishes in your endeavors, and remember that you do not have to be able to mimic the instructors perfectly at first, it takes some time for your
body to adjust to these positions. You will however notice the differences immediately.
