I would just go to some classes.  You might want to try different places; for example there are four or five studios around me but only one is what I'm looking for (the rest are slow, relaxation, deep breathing shit which I don't get a lot of benefit from).  I like ashtanga/astanga yoga because a) it's way more athletic and b) it's unheated.  Also c) the ladies are way hotter (due to a) ;).

 

It's really a struggle for me to stay focused outside of a class.  Also, a lot of the benefit / difficulty in poses derives from really subtle alignment differences, that you may never pick up on on your own.

Yeah... i'm like the most unbalanced, uncoordinated person ever haha, feel awkward going to a class.

But I guess everyone says that at first. Plus NY prices are fucking $$$$

Mark, download the P90X Yoga X and the Tony Horton One-on-One Fountain of Youth dvds.

both are decent yoga workouts in terms of stretching.

the P90x one is like 90mins whereas the One-on-One video is 45 mins.

Well, I mean, that would be why you're going... it's sorta like saying you're too out of shape to go to a gym, you know?  But I thought the same thing, and then I went and half the class was overweight or worse than me.  Most studios also have a basics/intermediate/advanced type of hierarchy so you shouldn't be too intimidated.

They're med school friends aka poverty friends.

It's like when you're a child and every kid your age within your neighborhood is automatically your friend.

I've been going for a year and a half or so to the classes at the Y. All body types there, and you definitely get out of it what you put in, in terms of intensity. I found it helpful for a number of my issues that came from not stretching properly.

Totally agree on the bolded part, you can slack or be working your ass off and it's very hard for others to tell the difference.  Although I have noticed at the place I go, the harder classes tend to be filled with people in pretty good shape.

I wouldn't pay that to see any of my friends pose in thongs. but then again I don't really have many friends. I'm also an asshole.

Bryan Kest was here a couple weekends ago for a workshop. I opted not to go because I didn't want to miss my regular Ashtanga practice.

Speaking of Ashtanga, I LOVE it. I practice Mysore every morning at 6 for an hour, and can now do a half primary with ease, though I do a led full primary every Sunday. It took a while to memorize the poses, but once you do, it provides mental as well as physical benefits. I like the studio, the regulars who attend, and the instructor is phenomenal. I've made vast improvements in flexibility, balance, and posture since starting over a year ago. As a bonus the women regulars are all super hot and nice; they often comment on my strength and muscularity. shog[1].gif I highly recommend it.

I seem to sweat a LOT more under my right arm compared to my left. Factors such as heat or activity don't seem to matter. In a lot of cases, I could lift up my arms and the pits look like they belong to two different people. The left is bone dry and the right looks like I just climbed a mountain and then did jumping jacks once I reached the summit.

Am I dying?

Damn, I'd love to meet the dude. I love the shit he says in that DVD, my friend and I use to quote it while we lifted and laugh.
