Racer Back Bra - Step 1

Racer Back Bra - Step 1

Yoga2010.com reader, Samantha Levy, was kind enough to take photos of how she creates a racer back bra from the simple ones that they sell at Wal-mart.

She left a comment on Day 17, explaining how to execute this, but I have recopied her comment and pasted it below. 

Thank you Samantha for sharing this with us.

Enjoy!

“As far as your razor back bra goes I have a razor back bra alternative.
I use older regular sports bras with the two that meet the back of the bra. I picked up the originals at walmart about two years ago. Take a key ring, a regular old key ring like on your key chains, and thread the two straps through the ring affectively joining the two straps within the ring. The ring allows the straps to move when you’re in twisting postures and it keeps the straps from digging into the sides of your next b/c the straps are joined lower than traditional razor back bras. If you’re short of key rings you can pick up several from your local hardware store for cheap.”

Day 17 – Not As Happy

Standing Separate Leg Stretching Pose

I was not as happy today in class.  I really want to get to the point where I am excited about a 90-minute class because I have an opportunity to move deeper into the postures since we do all the Bikram yoga postures twice.  Instead, I was irritated and annoyed at things like my sports bra tugging at my neck.  My sports bra has the racer back thing.  So if anyone reading out there has a suggestion for a sports bra that isn’t racer back but supports, please leave a comment below.

Today’s instructor was Lisa.  I had a problem hearing what she was saying today, in other words, she wasn’t talking loud enough.  I find that mildly irritating when I am breathing in and out of my nose and cannot hear anyway.

Today’s photo is Standing Separate Leg Stretching pose.  Lisa actually helped me get into this pose deeper today.  Anyway, not as chatty today, so I will end it here.
