For the past several years I've tried doing yoga on and off. I would really love to make it an everyday thing, but I'm just having trouble staying motivated and finding time. And since its just here and there, doing stretches and poses when I can or those to heal something specific I guess its not true spiritual yoga. I do notice a difference in the way I feel and think when I stick to it though, but it never lasts. A big part of the reason I have trouble sticking with it is my 4 kids (youngest a very rambunctious 2 yr old).
If anyone has suggestions on a good routine/references/books/etc, that would help me get and stay in gear I'm all ears. I have an Iyengar yoga book that helps some and I love reading yoga journal, but it feels what I'm doing is so random I can't get in the groove. Also, my legs and back get so stiff and tight, and since I don't stretch them regularly they get sore instead of loose when I do stretch them. Is it best to let them rest or keep stretching when sore?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
