30 Bananas a Day!

Hey everyone-

What is your favorite routine in the morning? Does you have a goal each morning, for example a full body check to search out sore areas; freshen up the alignment; stretching; a flow sequence that just wakes you up, etc.?

Since learning that coffee really does not agree with the new me - however organic fair-traded or ristretto it is - yoga in the morning has been such a wonderful way to begin the day. Coupled with a big jar of water I can't find a better combination. Now I seek diversity. Let's hear your routine!

After some water I start yoga classes (mostly moderate and intermediate level and more that 60min) from Myyogaonline. You can choose different levels, duration and styles (I love diversity too). The routine I end with tai chi, the 24 forms. Sometimes add or vary with the 8 pieces of brocade qigong series (simple but great), or get the rebounder.

It's easy to get used to exercise before breakfast. Exercise is the first thing I crave for :) Then a green banansmoothie.

During wintertimes the exercise bike is another option. 

The dry brushing I did for a while, will be taking that up again, coz it's great! thnx Maite ;)

 

Thanks gals! Sita, great resource, I'd never seen that site before. Seems to be the 30bad of yoga. Awesome!
:) If you want to work hard, I can recommend David Magone's PranaVayu yoga program (on the MYO website) for the whole week. I can't do all the poses (like twisted side crow on one arm), but you can experience progress in general, so what you can't do (yet) is not that frustrating. Good luck!

I've been looking for good tips on yoga. Will check out your suggestion.Thanks

Depends on if I have a work/family crisis in the morning these days....

 

I try to do 1 hour of Vipassana meditation every morning.

Afterwards, if I'm lucky, afterwards I can do 15-30 minutes of yoga/qi gong before showering.

 

Lately I've taken to the 15 minute Short Form in David Swenson's Ashtanga Yoga:

  • Sun Salutation A, 3-5 rounds
  • Sun Salutation B, 3-5 rounds
  • Paschimottanasana
  • Marichyasana C
  • Navasana
  • Urdhva Dhanurasana
  • Paschimottanasana
  • Padmasana
  • Savasana

Then my fruits!!!!!

wow you can do all 7 postures, plus 6 - 10 sun salutations in 15 mins?

I am trying to learn how to do yoga properly I started out with the Wii but there are very few poses on there and I've done most of them and I get bored because there's not a real person with me while I'm doing it and I get lonely. is there anyone that lives in MD that would be willing to do yoga in the park or something?
