I love taking yoga classes, but now that I'm trying to economize in every possible area (and using the envelope system), and that $15 per class could feed me for a week, it seems like an unnecessary expense. I have never managed to do yoga on my own (I get distracted), and now that I'm tv-free, I can't do video classes. Even when I had a tv it wasn't in a convenient spot for me to see and stretch out with.
I haven't gone to a yoga class for a few weeks and have been feeling stiff and sore. So the other day, I looked around on iTunes and found many free or inexpensive yoga classes that I could download. My favorite has been YogaDownload.com because their classes are all around 20 minutes long -- just the right time for me. I can set aside 20 minutes (where 90 would seem too long at home), and do a class at home. I've done a couple so far and feel better already. They ask for a one dollar per month donation. I am happy to pay that.
Have any of you DS readers used podcasts as a way to stay in shape? I can't believe I never thought of this earlier!
