Anyone take yoga?

I was interested in taking some classes that are offered in my area. They're beginner classes, which is good because I've never taken it before. I am interested in becoming more flexible and helping relieve stress. I'm also hoping this will transfer to my concentration in the saddle. Anyone take yoga classes regularly and recommend it?

I used to and loved it! I am yet to practice regularly again, but I am trying to find a good/cheap place near me to start up again.

I found it helped immensely with my riding. The breathing exercises, the meditation, the muscle/stretching exercises and balance exercises all are wonderful for horse back riders :)

Thanks guys! The place I found here are their prices

$12 drop in class
$40 for 4 punch card (I believe 4 classes)
$76 for 8
$108+free class for 12
$140 for unlimited a month

they only offer 3 classes a week, so I'm not sure what makes a difference from the last price to the second to last one.

Is that pretty expensive? I know every area is different, but how does it compare?

Yoga is wonderful! I bought a ten dollar DVD from Walmart. LOL!

I love yoga, we did it in gym for about two months and it made me veryyyy flexible (i'm already double jointed so it added flexibility) and it's so relaxing and good for balance!
If you aren't sure if you will like it/ benefit from it, you should buy a dvd or cd like 3neighs did, just to see :)

I have always wanted to try it at least once. I always make fun of people who go but I have honestly never tried it. I don't know that I would be able to keep a serious face thru the session

I don't, but my sister does. She loves it. Although the flaxibility and body awareness is nice, she really loves the way it teaches you too relax and release stress, instead of keeping it inside
