The Yoga Lifestyle

On and off for the past few years I have dabbled in the art of Yoga. 

Lately, I have been going to a class called Body Flow at my local women's Goodlife Gym in Moncton, NB. I quickly fell in love. 

Body Flow mixes yoga, taichi and pilates all in one 45 or 60 minute class. At the end of the class, the relaxation/meditation is the most rewarding, it only lasts 10 minutes but changes your entire day. At first, I didn't think I could get those pesky thoughts out of my mind, but after my third class I successfully felt as one with my body. It was a wonderful experience! After only a week of my daily Body Flow classes, I already found my mind was more calm, and my balance was top notch. 

I highly suggest heading to your local GoodLife Gym to try out Body Flow. It's a class by Les Mills, and I have found it highly beneficial in my fitness routine. 

After a talk with one of my Body Flow teachers, she directed me to a few different yoga sites that I simply cannot wait to try out! I also mentioned to her my love for Tara Stiles and all things rebellious when it comes to the traditional yoga practice. 

I thought I would share some Tara Stiles videos with you below. I love to use her YouTube videos first thing in the morning or right before bed. She also has a series called "Tara Eats" on the LiveStrong Woman channel with the most delicious vegan recipes you'll ever find. 

 Do any of you do yoga? What are your thoughts? Also, do you find the colour of your yoga mat makes your yoga practice different?
