Name this pose. Anyone? I saw a beautiful version by instagrammer @shauna_harrison that is exquisitely horizontal. Beyond hip flexibility, which needs work, I couldn’t figure out the action to match it. But fun play. From gecko. Try it!

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Happy Friday!

If an elephant can crow, perhaps you can too. And yes, some days it can feel just like this.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

And thanks to Instagrammers @allyoucanyoga for the picture.

I don’t usually do Throw back Thursday, #TBT, but this is a big one.

2 years ago this week, I had just finished my #YTT–Yoga Teacher Training, 200 hours–and taught my very first solo yoga class. I still feel like a baby teacher in many ways.

5 years ago this month I stepped into @willowstreetyoga for the first time for a @mariahamburger Yoga and Abs class. This was after several brief love affairs with yoga during my life. Apparently, this one took.

Maha gratitude to all of my teachers and fellow students. It takes a village to raise a #yogi. I feel a blog bubbling up to the surface here…..perhaps.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,

Fiddling around on my fingertips. Learning. What? (1) This way is a nice break for the wrists, and my fingers feel strong and okay. It’s not as rough as it looks. Thumb pad/muscle is a little tired now, a few hours after practicing. (2) It is much harder to balance, duh, not sure I learned that. I think I knew that. (3) It is much harder to maintain integrity in my core, and sway back happens right away. (4) My arms naturally stay straighter, even kicking up, even that left one that always wants to bend. I like that.

Not bad learning. For a Monday morning with dishes still in the sink. Handstands are fun.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.
