I know that streching is a big part of training but i want to strech like i train, with a reason.
So i was wondering if anyone does Yoga from a video? and if so which one?
i go to a yoga place ... but try "bikram" or "Hatha" yoga .... You may be able to find some DVD's on those particular types. The one thing those is that they heat the room to 96 degrees ! That helps a lot. YOGA is the only thing that helped me to become a better swimmer.
I have the Yoga for Cyclist DVD
It was my first exposure to yoga so I can't really compare it. But does focus on core and flexibility. And you can use the Trifuel discount at TriSports! :)
My wife and I do Bikram yoga 1-2 times per week all year long but we go to class. We have Bikram's tape but without the heat it is just not the same.
This yoga discipline is physically quite challenging but becomes far
less of struggle when your practice improves.
Power Yoga for me 1x/week. The place I do it heats the room to 90degrees. Not as hot as Bikram but gets the sweat going. I move it to two days a week in lieu of the gym in racing season.
I try to do yoga 1x/wk at my gym with a couple of girlfriends - just your basic hatha-type yoga, not power or bikram or anything like that. But I also have the following dvd's: "Crunch: Total Yoga" (two different routines, which I like a lot); Rodney Yee's "Power Yoga: Total Body Workout" and one of Baron Baptiste's Power Yoga dvd's (good but HARD).
I am really new to yoga. What do the different types mean? all i am interested in is more flexibility the tranquillity of the hobby.
I have been meaning to take it up. I also heard that pilates was more focused on core training, so would this be better for triathletes? Just wondering what people think.
I like the two MTV yoga DVD's believe it or not. The one with the red cover is easier (but still challenging) and the blue one is a fantastic workout. I have 3 or 4 other yoga DVDs but I still like the MTV ones the best.
I think yoga is a fantatisic compliment to triathlons. The flexibility you gain from yoga is great.
I take a vinyasa yoga class once in a while. It's great for flexibility as well as core strength (I actually ache more after yoga than lifting). If you're new to yoga, I'd recommend taking a class or two before using a video, b/c the instructor can help make sure your form is correct.
I have done Yoga, Pilates and most recently I have taken up Body Rolling. So far I like the body rolling the best. I don't have the attention span for Yoga so I like Pilates better, it moves a little faster, although I can only take about 50 minutes of it.
This Body Rolling is phenomonal. My sister turned me on to it, she is a physical therapist, she is using this in her PT practice. It feels like your getting a stretch and a massage all that the same time, I feel so refreshed. One of the routines has you rolling the ball up and down your Lats it's amazing, I feel like I have better posture from it.
Here is the website. [url]http://www.yamunabodyrolling.com/?Page=YBR[/url] for information. She recommended the red ball, so that is what I got. I also picked up the 5 DVD box set.
for those of you that are doing yoga, do you find it is that helpful when you go once a week?
(I did it a few years ago and thought it was great, but, back then, i was not trying to train for a triathlon too so I was able to go more often.)
