I tried Yoga

Posted by Sue on 9/08/98 at 12:16 (001698)

I tried Yoga. I took only one class and stopped because so many of the positions involved standing--I didn't think that was doing my feet any good.

I tried Hatha Yoga. I know there are many different types of yoga. Maybe she tried a different type. Do you know which Yoga she tried?

I've actually been doing yoga off and on for 10 years. I found just standing barefoot hurt me. But I did it anyways because I love yoga but it did nothing for my pf. I did the hatha-integral style of yoga. I've also tried the Iyengar style and that is harder on pf'ers since it involves more standing poses.

I don't know what type of yoga she does, but when I find out I will post a message about it. You are right that standing poses would be very difficult to do with PF.
