Is yoga a sport?
I do it, to stay in shape, and because of the philosophy that goes with it.

i think it is because it shapes the body. i don't know if you get better stamina/endurance but atleast it gives peace and a clean head.....that the fun of sports in general...

Thats for sure wouterrrr. My head is good and clean.
But, it also gives good muscle tone, and flexibility.

I go to the gym about 3 times per week and run and swim.

Apart from that, I find bird watching a thoroughly enjoyable sport

I did my first yoga class yesterday and I don't know if it qualifies as a sport, but it is a FULL BLOWN work-out, let-me-tell you. Now I consider myself in fairly good shape, but it was a bit embarrassing to be in a room full of tiny, limber girls (quite enjoyable in that regard too mind you) who seemed to possess strength in parts of the body I didn't know existed. Though I was utterly exhausted, I felt completely relaxed at the end. I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to going back again.

To make myself feel better about my athletic ability; had to hit the slopes today as skiing is my game.

Dragonboat! Not competitive or anything, but regular practices and plenty of pain.

What's a dragonboat? Rowing?

Dragonboat is like a big canoe with 20 paddlers. They have some really elite teams here, but I'm on a nice recreational team that practices once a week in winter, twice in summer. The coach had us do leg lunges last week, though. Ow! I waddled for two days...

Yeah, it looks easier, than it is. I used to think it is not propper exercise, and cant possibly keep me in shape, until I tried it. I like the low impact aspect of it. So much healthier, than Karate, which I used to do. I dont think the repeated kicking etc has been good for my knees.

Tae Kwon Do, twice a week. Very active sport.

I do (did?) a lot of running, I live in a great area for it, but it's been so cold lately that I haven't been bothering (as my wasting physique will testify).

Hillwalking, very good for fitness and a lot of fun. But again, the old "cold weather" excuse has been playing a large part . . .
