I have played around with Yoga DVD's for quite a while. When I was really out of shape, I bought them thinking that it would "still count" as exercise and be easy. Psh. Yoga ain't easy!!
I'm getting pretty good at Chaturanga into Upward Dog - and I found myself rejoicing twice with "I did it, I can DO this now!" What a wonderful feeling of progress! My actual weigh number doesn't seem to be cooperating right now, so these other things are very important. I know they tell you not to worry about losing weight - but I have 27lbs left to loose - I need to be concerned, or slip into apathy.
