    I first tried yoga when working my way through the P90X videos. It helped me tremendously. It strengthened my legs and core to levels that I had not previously attained.
    I especially like the idea of the extra log mat for men. One of my biggest problems is that my hands and feet would always be off the mat when I went into downward dog and with this mat I don’t think I would have that issue.

    I always assumed that yoga was something middle aged women did. But nowadays that stereotype has been destroyed by professional athletes sharing stories online of their yoga allowing them to carry on their careers into their late 30’s / early 40’s.

    I have never tried it myself but always wondered if I should. I injured my back a year ago in a car crash and some certain exercises I perform cause me pain. Do you think yoga would help this or still cause pain?

      I absolutely know that yoga would be able to help you with your pain after the accident, Craig. I suggest you start classes with a certified instructor and with consistent practice, you’ll see the results!

    I have long thought about yoga.
    I would like, to be honest. My ex-wife had yoga classes for about a year. I purchased she one of the best yoga mat from the USA. She spent a lot of money but after a year or so she quit.
    Actually, I not clear why? Maybe just laziness as many of us is tend to be? Anyway, I am close to the action to attend for yoga classes.
    If Yoga already has thousands of years of proven value then the results should be.
    The main thing is to believe in yourself.
