I'm thinking about trying some Yoga to help me with my back and to open up my hips. Since coming back from a very serious leg/foot injury, my back has been giving me a lot of trouble. Has anyone tried the Hot Yoga (Bikram or Moksha)? Thanks. :)

Anusara http://www.anusara.com/

My Girlfriend is an instructor and it has a lot of strong ties to anatomy, muscular energy and science. It is the 10th Planet of Yoga in my opinion.

Really any yoga is helpful as long as the instructor knows a lot about alignment and anatomy. There are a lot of teachers that "play yoga" and you can end up injured or not get the best results.

I did Bikram a few times. I loved it, but they dont offer it down here. But I would recommend it.

Thanks guys. I checked out the Anusara Yoga and there is actually an Anusara instructor in Montreal. Unfortunately, her schedule is very limited and I wouldn't be able to make her classes. Any other suggestions as to the best Yoga for opening up my hips and helping my lower back?

Rebel Yoga is the 10th Planet of Yoga! Then again...85% of my training was in Anusara. LOL.

I finally found something that might be what I'm looking for. It's called Yin Yoga. They focus on slow stretches of the connective tissue in the hip area, which is exactly what I need.

Yin Yoga is basically restorative, which is one HUGE component of Rebel Yoga. Its good stuff.

I'd be all over Rebel Yoga, if it was offered in Montreal. I hear it's the 10th Planet of Yogas. :)

Yep. More Rebel Yoga flows will be offered on Mastering The System for Pro Members and we are close to starting filming the first of what will be many Rebel Yoga DVD's.

Thanks for the support guys!

When we WERE going to go on the cruise she was very interested in doing the yoga and was WISHING she could help in some way. She has had over 1000 hours in teacher training.
