Hi! New Yogi here. I love yoga AFTER I’ve done yoga... if that makes sense. During yoga, I’m fidgety and restless and I can’t seem to concentrate. But after? Phew! I love the mushy, warm, puddle feeling. Can anyone offer some advice to ease my way into doing yoga consistently?

For background I’m normally a heavy lifter type of gal but with covid I’m trying to find a wider range of activity. All comments/thoughts welcome!

Yoga essentially is a union of the mind body and soul. If you are being fidgety during yoga that means the mind is restless and that's what needs to be trained and excercised through knowledge about how the mind functions so you can learn to manage it and through meditation. DM for individualized help.

Most people confuse yoga as the physical excercise and that's all. Actually physical exercise is only one part and is not effective if the other parts are not in sync.

So glad to see there are others who realize and know this about yoga!

Btw, a Yogi is a male Yoga teacher. Yogini is a female yoga teacher.

For consistency, you can sign up for classes or find an online sadhana. When you are fidgety, it may mean your mind and body are resisting to concentrate. The mind knows the practice will bring under control and it resists. The mind wants to control you. It does not want to be controlled by you. Just keep practicing and allow and observe that pattern. It will lose power.

I’m a shy, anxious, and introverted person but in functional roles where I usually need to talk to a lot of people. It makes me anxious - even though I’ve been doing it for over 5 years. I get so insanely jealous of outgoing people in the workplace who can just talk to people so easily. It’s affected my mental health & even though I’m in therapy (2 months in), I feel like I’ll never get a grip and overcome my shyness. Can anyone else relate? 😪

Hey friends, since we have a lot of new joiners to the group I thought maybe we should share any advice we got/wished we got when we started our journeys.
Mine are:
1) a good diet changes how you perform at the gym and is key for aesthetics
2) master the form of your exercise. Form > weight always
3) Follow a structured program. The worst structured program will have more benefits than no structure
4) consistency > perfection
5) listen to your body
6) have fun with your exercise!

I did very well in school but I didn’t get enough clinical exposure because of the pandemic. I keep talking myself out of applying since I don’t think I’ll interview well with this mindset.

(I dont have an in home caregiver yet, but just thinking about it.)
