It's easy to go outside in our great state of Colorado when it comes to exercising. But with our snowy winter months upon us, I had to search for another way.

My friend Alex has been trying to get me to participate in yoga over the past few years. I always say NO, because when it comes to being flexible. I'm not your guy. Alex explains, "That is all the more reason to start doing it. She is absolutely correct.

Before I provide you with some great yoga places in Montrose, let me first reveal a few unspoken rules that everyone should be aware of before attending classes.


Yoga Class

Yoga class

Rule #1 - Don't take up too much space, especially in a crowded class.

Rule #2 - Let's keep the showing off to a minimum. Yes, headstands look great, but is it necessary in class?

Rule #3 - Do not leave in the middle of the class. The instructor seems to frown upon this interruption, as well as the others trying to concentrate within the room. Your exit may disrupt the class flow. not to mention it's just plain disrespectful.

Rule #4 - Must studios have a no-shoe policy? So DO NOT wear shoes while on the mat.

Rule #5 - Breathing extremely loud. Deep breaths are ok as long as you're not obnoxious about it. Loud grunts tend to be annoying to others.
