Can I do other exercises while I do yoga? By Forum July 22, 2010 0 - Advertisement - I just started yoga the other day, but i heard that if your doing yoga, you can’t do anything else – like running or aerobics. Apparently the whole point of yoga is lost if you do the other stuff? True or not? - Advertisement - Tagsyoga Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp ReddIt Tumblr Mix Digg LINE Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Name* Email* Website Name* Email* Website 3 Comments Most Voted Newest Oldest Inline Feedbacks View all comments Don't think...Feeel 10 years ago That is not true. You can do other types of exercise as well. Running and aerobics strengthen your heart and lungs. And, you should lift weights as well (it won’t make you bulky…just stronger). 0 Reply lululemon athletica 10 years ago Hi Vikenza, Many people do yoga in addition to other physical activities. Doing other activities does not take away from your yoga practice. In fact, crosstraining can be a great way to improve your practice and switch up your workout routine. Running, swimming, dance, aerobics – these are just a few examples of other types of exercise you can do in addition to yoga.
