Restarting Yoga

Last year I was weightlifting and doing light stretches to keep fit. However this year I did do anything starting from January 1st until now. I really want to start back exercising, but I want to try yoga instead of weightlifting. Also, since transferring to a university from community college, my diet is slowly dissolving into junk food and the occasional piece of fruit or salad.

How can I jump back into the swing of things? How can I slowly introduce my healthy foods back into my diet? Does anyone know of a good yoga studio in the Austin, TX area or a great online program?

Hello! I'm not sure if this will help you but this yoga channel on youtube has a lot for beginners or people getting back into yoga:


I would do very easy slow yoga routines until you can go into the harder routines. Maybe get some beginner yoga DVDs before starting the class?

I love Yoga With Adrienne! Isn't she located in Austin, TX as well? Maybe check out her website: http://yogawithadriene.com/yoga-classes-in-austin-tx/

Since I live in the midwest, I just watch her videos on youtube and practice on my own.

I can't abandon the person I used to be, so I carry her.

I love Yoga With Adrienne too! Whenever I can't make a class I do her yoga videos, I practically do her yoga for sleep every night :P

There are so many different kinds of yoga so please try many different styles with different teachers to try to find the right fit for you.
I take a hot vinyassa class at my nearby Lifetime Fitness. They have a nice big yoga studio and the class is just perfect for me. The moves are fairly quick and the music is fun. I like the heat too because it helps me relax and stretch. They do hot yogo a little cooler than Bikram. There's a Lifetime in Austin. I don't know if it has a yoga studio or if a membership is in your budget but you might want to go take a look and see. If you join, list me as the person who recommended you!

I use a Yoga Studio app on my iPhone. I would also check if there are yoga classes offered at your university.
