Dear ladies, you might think that yoga is only for elderly, slow, unfit people. Let me tell you something. Yoga based workouts are one of the hardest out there. You might be fine to run long distance, perform successful weight training, but when you try yoga exercises you will suffer.


Many of participants from my classes, both men and women after trying yoga based training agreed that it was the hardest thing they ever came across. They described it as mind and breath calming experience but at the same time real muscle fight.


Yes, during yoga you will challenge your body and mind. It is low impact class. Positions are steady; you hold each of them up to 30 seconds, smoothly moving from one to the other. So, where is the challenge?

Oh, trust me there is. By keeping each position for 30 seconds you will definitely push your muscles to their limit. Be prepared for muscle shaking, burning and relaxation at the same time.


This is isometric kind of workout which means your muscles once set into a position will remain in it for set amount of time without moving.

I highly recommend this type of workout to anyone. It is safe during pregnancy and if you were performing it regularly up to due day, safe to reassume few weeks after childbirth.


New moms, make sure you have your doctor approval before you will jump into it.
