New yoga

So the yoga instructor I'd been going to for the past 2 years no longer teaches at my gym. She claims it's because she's going to massage school and doesn't have time, but I suspect that she's picking up more classes at the yoga studio she also teaches at and is making more money. And I can hardly blame her. I'd follow her there, but I ain't driving all the way down to Cherry Hills, even if John Elway might show up.

So this meant I needed to find a new studio. I kicked the idea of Bikram around, but am a little hesitant as I tried it once and found it very intense. As luck would have it, I found a flyer at work on our discounts table for a studio nearby that would let me try my first class for free. I went tonight, and it was great! I think I'll go back.

But I'm still bummed about having to shell out extra money to continue to practice. I got spoiled having such a good instructor at my gym. Pout.

Which type do you practice? I did Ashtanga for about a year but now I'd like to find a good Kundalini studio.

Chel, I'm doing a vinyasa flow class - some instructors here are calling it "power yoga".

What's Kundalini?

This new place has something called Buddo yoga - a combination of yoga and martial arts. I think I'll have to check that out too!

Kundalini is another type of yoga but it has more chanting and focuses more on breathing and meditating. I saw something about it on E! awhile ago. It's supposed to make you more beautiful and happy. ;) After I posted my comment to you I found a really good place on the east side that I'm going to visit.

The Buddo sounds like a lot of fun.
