I've been doing yoga on/off for a while now. I prefer the power (keep moving type) yoga, rather than the meditative type. I've noticed it has helped some, especially with my hips and legs. It has also helped with my stamina when I'm shooting.

I have been trying Namaste yoga and another one that I can't think of right now. Has anyone tried yoga to help with their various arthritis'? If so, what type do you do?

Just wondering and thanks for any info.

Haven't taken yoga and don't think I could anymore but have taken a TaiChi for arthritis class that I enjoyed.

Hey there! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Yoga.. I take a Yoga/Pilates (yoga-lates?) class.. I love it! I'm with you, it helps to keep me stretched out.. When I am in a flare or just not moving as well as I would like, I like to do the meditation style Yoga.

I started off with Pilates.. I got some DVDs and did those, then when our gym started the Yoga-lates class, I started attending those, and I just love it! I can definately feel a difference if I don't go for a couple of days!
