...........In our upstairs gallery area at home, with soft lighting, soft carpet, yoga book and Classic FM on quietly.  I've done this for a grand total of two days so far and after a session I feel relaxed, refreshed and wonderfully stretched all over. I enjoy it and I'm determined to keep it up this time - having dabbled in it before.   ::)

I have yet to use the yoga app my DD put on my iPad! I did go to classes for a year, so maybe that suits me better as you have to pay up beforehand, so you turn up.

I think some people like classes and others prefer to go it alone.  What I like about solo yoga is that nobody can see me looking (what I think) daft - not even Hubby!  I keep the door shut..........! :)
My Dad used to do yoga in his younger days. One day, Mum brought some ironing into their bedroom. Suddenly, an unseen voice spoke to her.  It was Dad - standing on his head, in the corner!

My Boss used to recommend Yoga in the 1970s, when the suggestion was thought 'way out'  :D

I've done yoga on and off for years, and more recently Pilates. I'm envious of your gallery area Dulciana! I've just done some yoga in my bedroom and son walked in on me again!!!
I find it difficult to attend yoga classes for various reasons but my yoga teacher has a website which, for a small annual subscription, I can access on my phone or iPad a range of yoga and Pilates exercises from short sun salutations to a 45 minute class.
I'm not that good at relaxing but I find the yoga stretches and breathing invaluable. I'm not a great fan of Pilates as I find it boring but I persevere and find the exercises essential for core muscle improvement.
Long live yoga!
