When did you start practicing yoga?
I took my first class about 10 years ago.
What brought you to BYX?
I was looking for a good cardio workout to replace my treadmill workout.
Why do you keep coming?
I keep coming back because of the challenges of the postures, and it raises my fitness level. The studio is very well maintained. The instructors are very helpful during and after class. You can tell that they care about you and your yoga practice. And if you have a need for some special help, it's there for you.
What benefits have you seen from your practice?
The main benefit for me is the reduced back pain. I'm also more flexible, and the cardio is great.
What has surprised you about practicing?
I keep seeing progress in the postures. The breathing is key for me, and I find it is easier for me to breathe, once in the postures.
How has yoga improved/changed your life?
I wake up with a lot less stiffness overall.
What's your favorite posture and why?
I like all of the backbends and their healing effect. I can walk longer and with less discomfort since I started practicing backbends. Mostly, my back just feels better after doing them!
Do you have any new goals that you did not have before practicing yoga?
I want to make reasonable progress in the postures. I keep making health "deposits" for my body.
