Yesterday I spent my morning participating in a 2-hour “Yoga Flow” event for National Yoga Day.
We did lots of downward dogs…..
And then I learned the 3 legged downward dog into the…..
flipped dog. I’m still much the beginner in yoga, but the more I practice the more I love it.
One thing I did learn is that my hips are really, really tight, but I did listen and learn and will be incorporating this “fire log” pose into my daily life. I think all of the weight training and cardio has me really tightened up this area. When I had seen people sit like this before in yoga, I thought they were just sitting cross-legged…not so. Click on the picture to read more about this pose. (I can get my bottom leg down, but when I try to put my top knee on top of my bottom ankle, it’s closer to my elbow or the middle of my upper arm)
I spent the rest of my day reading this book….finished it in one day…..it’s really a tear-jerker! I’m talking tissues and mascara running down my face!
I’m fighting off a cough (I hate being sick!) and all the yoga has left me pretty sore, so I just lounged and read for the rest of the day. We had left-over ham and beans (sometimes not having to cook can be a good thing….I’m a big fan of left-overs!) that I had made the night before last and we watched a movie with Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci. “Love Ranch”…..we really enjoyed it! Is there anything Helen Mirren has been in that HASN’T been worth watching?
Heading to a flea market when Kenny gets home from the gym…..guess I’ll get out of my “sweats” and put on some real clothes!
