I have been doing Yoga off and on for the past 6 years. I started because my knees began to hurt pretty bad after sessions when I turned 26. It helped wonders and I was pain free after about two months. Then I lost the motivation to go and stopped. After a few months it started to hurt again and I went beack to class and stopped again after the pain stopped. I have had longer stints of doing yoga since. The longest I went was about one year, going to a class about once or twice a week. I am about 6 foot tall and even when I am fit and lean I am rather heavy guy. I'd definitely be a bear type if I wasn't so restless doing sports like an idiot all the time... Without yoga I wouldn't be able to skate today. I really don't like doing it though. It feels weird and yoga classes have always been hard to get through so I haven't gone to a class for about 8 months now. I still do some of the stretches i learned in yoga when I feel tense after or before skating though and I started doing Karate twice a week. It is way more fun than Yoga and has also helped with balance and core strength. It has even helped with chronic inflamation of my ancles so I have been able to have daily street sessions again. Sometimes I think skating is a weird variation of Kung Fu. Our shins at least must endure more hard hits on wood as a shaolin monk's.

I remember back in the late 90s quim cardona had a hand drawn graphic of "sun salutations" on his "quimtime" site and mentioned how he did yoga before he skated.

yeah, him and diaz (when they were on adidas) and all the i-path dudes too. Matt Field is the one who really gave yoga a presence in skating though.
After breaking my leg eons ago I got told that I'd never be able to skate again, months of rehab and swimming got my muscle strength back but I still quite couldn't get the flexibility back and still limped quite a lot. Ended up getting heavily into yoga which eventually led to me being able to skate again.  I've been slacking lately with #dadlife but I still try and get 2 or 3 sessions in a week. In conclusion yoga is the shit!

I decided I'd do new year resolutions and stuff this year and getting into yoga was one of them (starting to read books on a regular basis again was the other) so I might as well post this here because I don't know shit. Should I invest in a mat? And if so will any old one do?

I got a super cheap yoga matt look a like for 6 euro on the beach in Italy and it works great. I think that you just need something soft under your knees

The mat is the biggest joke in yoga... Not that any studio lets you practice without one. I really like the skinniest mat possible, simply because I do Bikram so I sweat tons and there is no need in saving your sweat in the mat. It's also harder because it's more uncomfortable, which I like the challenge of.

I'm currently trying to do 14 days back to back of Bikram, or at least hot yoga since this city fucking sucks when it comes to Bikram offerings. On day 2/14 and feeling good.

I like yoga, I just tend to get really bored.  Usually around minute 40 of a 60 minute class.  A studio in my neighborhood is doing $30 for one month unlimited for new students.  I may jump on that deal.

What city you in?
I;ve been doing Ashtanga yoga for the last 10yrs and a mat is needed (mine is the thicker padded type so its better for the impacts and wrists)
plus i do it at home and my carpet will give burns w.o a mat.
I usually will just flood my apartment with heat when I want to do Bikram

Last time i signed up to a class i ended up not liking how spread out the different levels are spread out.  A lot of studios just offer the different style and not different levels.   I usually am motivated to try them because of the eye candy

For bad ankles, get one of these and stand on it for like 5 minutes a day:

get and skate in hi tops, and use orthotic insoles

For a messed up lower back, ice the fuck out of it for like 30 minutes a day along with taking some ibuprofen.

At this point, I do Yoga weekly along with using the balance disc daily, I swim laps 3-5 times a week to keep my muscles balanced and my weight down, ride a high-resistance exercise bike 3-5 times a week to strengthen my knee stabilizing muscles, and regularly soak in a hot tub the day after skating. I'd do ice baths but my apartment only has a shower, not a bathtub. The rest of the stuff I do at the health club I got a membership to purely for the sake of maintaining my body for skating.
Staying in good skate shape takes more and more effort every year. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time working to keep my body in good skate shape than I do skating this days, which is annoying.

Join a tennis club. It has nothing to do with yoga but it's a lot more manly than anything posted here. Really crushing someone's soul is very rewarding, it also helps with my skating.

The stigma that tennis is for rich people is lame, you can cop a racket for like 40$ and find public courts. tennis is wicked.

I'm in Oslo now, there are 2 studios that I know of that offer Bikram and variations (hot vinyasa, yin, some have levels etc.). When I lived in Vancouver I could do free yoga at work and did all kinds of variations, but I ended up doing Bikram outside of work because I find it more interesting.
I can see the need for a mat, but I'm lightweight and I've been doing pushups on the regs for years so my wrists don't really hurt after a long class.

I don't do it at home, I don't have the self control to do that. Hella respect to anyone who can do a 90 minute session at home, most I've ever done was 20 minutes. I can't focus or get into the whole meditation part of it.

for me the meditation is about being focused on what I am doing, rather than letting my mind run off. so it's actually just about yoga and nothing else. an example of what i consider being in a meditative state is that you focus on your bend rather than the hot chick who is basically pushing her pretty damn perfect ass right into your face.

you don't have to go all naga baba and eat humans just because you meditate. as everything in life there is such a thing as moderation.

I'd be happy to field any Bikram yoga questions, I've been teaching it since 2005.  I want Grimcity to drive over and make a short video with me for some pre-post yoga poses for strength, stability, and flexibility.  If it wasn't for the yoga there's no way I'd still be able to skate, but my body is in better shape at 41 than at 25, mostly due to yoga but also due to the fact that I don't jump down shit anymore.

I picked it up last year. I like more of the physical side of it and stray away from the namaste kooks. Everyone I know who does it feels like it has benefited their skate life. Get you Mayurasana on mother fuckers.

This. I like yoga and it's good for my skating, but those 90 mn classes feel looooong. After an hour I'm ready to be done.

Those asses though...
Its funny because sometimes I'll look at what other people are doing around me just to make sure I'm doing my pose right, and I feel like all the women (a vast majority in most yoga classes I've attended) think I'm checking out their asses and stuff.

spungo, so since Bikram is the same 26 poses over and over, are there any additional poses you'd recommend pre or post session? my primary issue is misaligned hips and weak ankles but I'd take anything. sometimes I notice these fairly hardcore people doing a lot of shit pre and post, but I am savasana king and therefor have no idea what they're actually doing.

gipper, oh the asses. man i didn't even know that asses could look like that. but it makes it even more challenging to stay focused on yourself. but sure, if you're unsure or loose balance, have a look around and enjoy the view. but pabst is on the money, some woman probably gets off the little glimpse of your dick (at least mine is pretty fucking dope so I don't blame her!) so I guess it's a mutual "trade".

I always took crossfit as PE for adults. I used to go to my friend's rock climbing gym as a guest from time to time, and they had crossfit there too. Looking at the people, and the boards for like "push up record" and shit like that, it seemed like the stupidest thing ever. Like, not just gym class, but like the shitty day at gym when you had to do the presidential fitness tests and shit, and these people are paying like $50/month to do the shit most people hated.
