    Hi all,

    It’s that time of year again and my new year resolution is to sign up for some yoga classes.

    Does anyone else do yoga – or pilates? I have heard that is good too. A lot of my female friends do yoga but I don’t know many men who do it – I am guessing most of the forum posters here are men so would be interested to know if you do – or if you don’t, why not?

    How easy is it to do yoga/pilates on your own after you have mastered some of the postures? Are there any decent DVDs or books you’d recommend? Do you think it is a good thing for a frequent traveller to begin? I never really use the hotel gym so I’m hoping this will work for me…

    Thanks!

    Hun, I have done both in the past. I find there is not much differences between the two. Experts will tell you otherwise but I have never done it deep enough to really get into it. Yoga classes can be very expensive so try and do then at your own gym instead specialist clubs. Some hotel spas will offer these classes however as most may charge you for it and treat it as personal training so be careful. Try a Zumba or boxer size class or even a bit of boot camp, all great fun and you will work up a sweat faster!! 🙂 x

    I tried British Military Fitness for a few months, it was great.
    My circumstances changed so I had to stop going, it was hard work but great fun.

    My yoga consists of feet up, good cigar and a G&T or port watching the sunset as I contemplate life in general.

    Mrs. LP a firm devotee however who goes about twice a week though she’s fussy about the type of yoga she does.

    Yoga at least twice a week, daily when I travel, then full stretching – sets me up for the day.

    As for other healthy ways, read the above post and I am the other end of the spectrum………………

    Life is great, life is fit and life is healthy

    Ahh Martyn, I fear you’re trying to shame me 😉

    LP does Mrs LP do Bikram yoga ie hot yoga?

    I think the only one that puts us all to shame is NIRScot at he does British Military Fitness… that sounds hardcore!! 🙂

    Have done 2 Ironmans (3.8k Swim + 180k Bike + Marathon) in the last 4 years….. hampered a bit by the excessive travel. July 2013 will be my Third… hopefully

    For those of you that have difficulty working out while on the move try these as most of them can be done without equipment and in the comfort of your hotel room.
