Fitness – Zen Yoga

I didn’t quit after my first workout (which is what always happens after running, darn those shin splints) and I did it again!  This time I chose a Zen Yoga from that very same website and trainer.  Rebecca-Louise at http://www.watchxfit.com is my idol now.  Again the video was under 20 minutes, it was very relaxing but still challenged me just enough.  This workout helped me realize that I may have lost my muscle mass in the past year but that I still have my balance and flexibility which was really good for my self-esteem!  I have never done yoga and this workout has made me want to do yoga always and forever (I feel like I should add a little heart here).  In the just-under-17-minutes video, Rebecca-Louise allows you to stretch while using your body to balance itself.  It’s like you’re stretching while secretly working out your muscles, it’s a sneaky mind-trick!  

I should mention, however, that I did not notice any muscle soreness during the day after my Pilates workout led by Rebecca-Louise yesterday morning, but I felt soreness in my lower abs as I was going to bed last night, and I really felt it this morning.  It made my yoga workout today more challenging but reminded me that my relaxing 16 minute workout yesterday was effective.  It only took 16 minutes!  Seriously, people, why hadn’t I found this website before now?
