guided by voices

I recently put in an order through SwapADVD for a new-to-me yoga DVD. I'm still loving Better Sex Through Yoga, but it's clear that I'm not going to be ready for the advanced DVD for at least another month. I need something different sometimes, and I'm not always in the mood for Molly Fox.

So tonight, I decided to try Lunar Flow yoga from Yoga Downloads. Tina from Carrots 'N' Cake always speaks highly of this practice, but I avoided it because I figured it was a video. It's a little tough to rearrange my computer monitor to watch videos, but I decided tonight was the night and proceeded to move some things around on my desk.

What a surprise! These 20-minute free downloads actually are mp3s, which is great. I had been wondering how I'd do my yoga when I travel to India in July (I know what you're thinking, but I'm going for a wedding and I don't think the trip will include yoga).

Being able to focus on a voice rather than a screen made a difference in how well I concentrate in each pose. I felt like my breathing was better as well. The only issue was knowing what pose to be in. My yoga DVDs and one Bikram class haven't given me the opportunity to know many poses by their names. I figured out plow pose, but you should have seen what I did for dead bug pose. It wasn't what you're seeing at left, nope nope.
