Yoga is Kind of Amazing

I'm not sure if you guys know this, but yoga is kind of awesome.  It helps you relieve stress while exercising and increasing stamina and/or strength.  It also helps boost your immune system.  I like to do yoga in the comfort and privacy of my room while catching up on my Hulu queue or watching Netflix.  I started doing yoga every morning for about an hour two weeks ago.  I haven't been doing it while I've been sick because it causes coughing fits which are no fun.  My yoga routine tends to be a mix of strength and cardio yoga.  The following poses comprise my main routine, but sometimes I'll do other poses too.

I also like to (well actually force myself to) do sun salutations, which I have the most trouble with.  Right now I can only do two at a time.  I also do cobra pose, which I actually enjoy, alternating with child's pose.  It's really great for stretching your back and stomach.

I have also discovered this site which is a great source for yoga beginners.  It says beginner poses but look at those arm balances!  So they're clearly not all beginner poses but still a wonderful resource.
