Hi really like your Blog, what are you thoughts on hatha yoga? I also found this really good guide on yoga that I think I might get, do you know any one that has got it and if it is any good? Here is the link http://budurl.com/runnersyoga

Comment by Kirsty

Hi Kirsty, thanks! I have never tried Hatha yoga myself, but I heard it’s a great class for yoga newbies because of it’s less structured and more relaxed instruction. I don’t know anyone who has gotten that guide. Personally I need to be in a class with an instructor and people to get myself motivated to do yoga (plus I like the group mentality of it – it seems so zen!). But if you can motivate yourself to use the guide in your own apartment/house I say go for it!
