I don't want any trolls on this thread please. 


Im going through a massive change in my life right now. And I have talked to some friends about some new hobbies/things to do. Reading books has been suggested and I am open to the idea. However the other I am considering is Yoga.


Does anyone do this, does it help with healing from heartbreak? I want to try some new things to keep myself occupied. 


Any thoughts?

Not a direct response, and more focused on the physical, but then again anything that involves concentration can help with keeping your mind occupied.

I also know someone else who did Hot Yoga for health and weight loss.  Maybe that could form part of a focus on physical activity?

(Whilst I haven't yet done Yoga myself I have looked into the static stretching parts of yoga to help with my gym work - I am focusing more on heavy lifting, and especially on leg days when DOMS kicks in, I need something that could help. Intense gym work is something I find you have to be very focused on - technique, reps, forms, etc. all require focus.  Again may be some help along with Yoga?)

I have done Yoga on and off over the years. It certainly helps me maintain a feeling of well-being, great for the body and soul. I would recommend giving it a try. Nothing to loose if you find its not for you :-)

I have done ashtanga yoga overseas and liked it.  Felt like a real workout.


Another thing to try might be a martial art. is a great group, friendly, not aggressive good mix of male and female of all ages.

I started a new job midway through this year and they have free yoga classes 3 times a week. I'd never done Yoga before so went to one out of interest and have been attending nearly every class since.


I can't relate to your particular situation but for me Yoga is a fantastic add on to attending the gym and really helps with my flexibility and stretching out sore muscles from workouts. I have also become more aware of my body and how it feels at any particular moment. I also find that after a class it generally puts me in a different (better) mindset than whatever I was in prior to the class (YMMV).


I'd recommend giving it a go for at least a few classes to get through that "I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing" phase and see how it goes for you, it's not for everyone but there's not really much to lose!
