    How long of a break before you lose it

    I stopped doing yoga about a month ago for no other reason than it kinda grew complicated with my lifestyle then. Now, things have evened out in my life and I want to do it again. Do you think I'll need to start at beginner again or do you think my body is still primed for Yoga? I really don't want to start at beginner because I'm afraid I'll find it to repetitive and boring and not want to do it anymore. Suggestions?

Hopefully this will be the case for you, too! Good luck!
    I agree, I get back into the swing of things quickly, too. That said, I do also recommend you start slow. A month is a long time to take a break for something. You've probably lost a lot of the flexibility you had before so you don't want to overdo it at the start, even if you already know the moves. Listen to your body and don't push it too far. Remember, if it's hurting, it's too much.

    I guess that's good advice. I suppose a month is too long to assume that my body will get back into the swing of things right away. *sigh* I'll take it slow and hope for the best...I just hate when you've made advancements and then you quit and then you have to start at the beginning again! It's so frustrating when you lose progress and you've got no one to blame for it but yourself!

    Probably a few weeks...after a month of not doing it at all, I'd be careful just jumping back into it, especially if you think you can handle something more than beginner. I would suggesting easing yourself back in and seeing how your body feels while doing the exercises, after you do them and the next day. This will give you an idea of what your body can handle.
