P.L.O.W. – This Ain't No Slow Yoga

P.L.O.W. – This Ain't No Slow Yoga

People like yoga for so many different reasons. While many people enjoy a slow-paced class because it calms and relaxes them, I prefer fast-paced Vinyasa style classes. The music is an important part of the class and it is great when the playlist is full of heavy beats and played with the volume cranked. Restorative yoga this is not.

aimeeb: there's no reason you couldn't do that if you developed a consistent ashtanga practice. ask around for a good ashtanga teacher, "show up and be present" in the classes. amazing things will begin to happen in your life. happy practicing :)

The only thing I've done for 2+ years is Power Yoga, Ashtanga and some Iyengar. I haven't been to the gym in over 5 years and I haven't ran any distance in a year (due to the repetitive action and pounding of joints). I do play some sand volleyball though, and that is a good explosive workout. If practiced with the right intention, YOGA is ALL you need. You can get your RESISTANCE TRAINING (by use of gravity and your body in the right asana), your CARDIO (again by intention and not resting between vinyasa) and FLEXIBILITY all in YOGA! Yoga ALONE is not for everyone, but I can tell you without a doubt, it can be if you want it to be :)

I admit it, I'm old school yoga gal ;) I run on my treadmill and do weights but I do yoga at the end of my workout, for the stretching, calming and centering part of my workout. I have a couple of friends though that do this style of yoga and love it!

I prefer when they play modern music in gym class. It's not as intimidating as chanting and bells. For example, "What I've Done" by Linkin Park, "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5, and "Gimme Shelter" by the Stones make great yoga music in my opinion!
