I took my first yoga class this morning with a couple of friends of mine. I will admit being nervous, with all three of us being newbies. I've heard of the crazy names of poses and was unsure I wanted to look like a total ass while trying to do them.
Happy Baby Pose.
Half Moon Pose.
Half Lord of the Fishes Pose.
Flying Crow Pose.
and of course, the Downward Dog.
Now lets face it. You've seen (pictures of) me. How do you think I get my body into these poses?
Balance. Now that is something I don't have in my life. Physically and mentally. I fell over twice. It was OK. The instructor said for "us beginners", it was OK to fall over. Phew! What a relief. I felt less of a loser.
Ok, now this one. My butt cheeks are just to big to be able to get my foot anywhere near my head. So come on, now. Let alone hold that position for a while.
