Mandatoryfun- how was your class?
I liked it a lot, thanks! Little did I know that the class I signed up for was intermediate, not beginner...so I had to modify a few poses, haha. It was great, though. I swear I felt like I could fall asleep during final relaxation, but once I got up and went outside, I had so much energy, man!

I agree with you about the breathing...it was hard for me to concentrate on that when I was just trying to follow what she was doing. I think once the poses become rote it will be easier to focus on breathing...

All this yoga talk is making me want to dust off my DVD and start doing some stretches in the mornings. (I'm too cheap to pay for a class at this point.)

The breathing aspect of yoga has always intrigued me. Is it really necessary for it to be a "noisy" breath to get the effect? I'm a musician, and breathing efficiently and without causing tension is a big part of training, so I'm wondering if it's possible to breathe "correctly" for yoga without forcing it to be audible.

It shouldn't be loud or forced; that's why I say a soft sound. I tell my students that THEY should be able to hear it, but not the person next to them. If you prefer not to make a sound at all, that's fine too.
