My favorite video instructor is Baron Baptiste, mostly cuz he cracks me up every time he says "Find your eeeequanimity."

I really love it. I feel relaxed and focused afterward. It was my crosstraining when I marathon trained, and I don't get tired of it. And it's been my chiropractic replacement. I've considered teaching it....
The Yoga I practice is also integrated, but there seem to be an emphasise on Hatha Yoga with a couple of teachers and Kunalini Yoga with another teacher. all in all I practice with 3 different teachers and they all bring in their own vision and practice of yoga.

Long term results: I notice when I haven't practiced in over a week. I'm more manic, depressed, and self-absorbed. Physically I feel sick, tired, and stiff.

I can't imagine life without yoga. Besides dance, it has been the biggest constant in my life and a consistent source of peace, joy, and a sense of what a work ethic looks like and what it produces.
I can understand that. its just feels that in regular practice of yoga you cover essential exercise and physical challenge, including flexibility and endurance. the fact that yoga can be very diverse in its poses and techniques is a great indictment to pursuit it.

I have been doing yoga lately. I have noticed my balance has gotten better! Any tips though on breathing technique? I find myself at times hurrying through the pose and not taking what feels like proper breaths.
