Creating Your Own Workout

When you've spent a lot of time doing yoga with weights, when you've done all the workouts and you're well acquainted with the exercises, you may consider creating your own workout. Why not? You know which exercises make you feel healthiest. You know which exercises challenge you the most. If you asked a personal trainer to devise a yoga-with-weights workout especially for you, he or she would charge $50 an hour or more. Creating the workout on your own costs considerably less than that, although it does require a bit of thought on your part. This chapter gives you the tools to create a powerful practice on your own.

Creating your own workout isn't as simple as choosing your favorite exercises and doing them one at a time. As you create a workout that focuses on the parts of the body that matter to you, you have to consider warming up, breathing, the sequence of exercises, the transitions between exercises, meditating, and how often to work out.

In Chapter 16, we present workouts tailor-made for swimming, tennis, baseball, and other popular sports. If your goal is to design a yoga-with-weights workout program so you can play better in the sport you love, turn to Chapter 16.
