I've tried it twice now at the gym in the past few weeks. I thought it was going to be more stretching but....
My arms and shoulders were killing me the next day! The "downward facing dog" position for me is a workout in itself trying not to fall over. I think yoga is great, and I'm going to be incorporating it into my schedule whenever possible.
I definitely couldn't do the advanced positions to save my life, so I will remain in the beginner posses till I gain more strength etc.
One weird goal of mine is to someday in the near future be able to do the "splits" like I used to in high school. Hopefully yoga will aid in this ridiculous goal of mine!
Go ahead and give it a try!!!
