Cobra Pose from The Front

Cobra Pose from The Front

I stayed up too late last night and will probably be doing the same tonight, however, I have to go to the 6:30am class tomorrow because I have other obligations during the day.  Today, however, I did not.  So I went to the 4:30pm class with Bill, which, of course means I will be sore and tired in the morning for not spreading out the classes more.

Since it was the 4:30pm class it was packed more than normal.  Bill and I had the good fortune of snagging two spots in the front row.

As I suspected, I was more flexible due to the fact that the class happened later on in the day (I am usually more flexible in the afternoon).

Today’s pose in the the Bikram yoga poses series is the Cobra Pose.  There’s not too much to Cobra and I welcomed it today because I was exhausted from doing the Bikram Triangle Pose and Standing Bow Pulling Pose.

From the look of the photos (the one at the top is from 2/22/10) I have advanced in this pose.  I am not surprised since this takes a lot of lower back strength and I do feel as though my lower back has gotten stronger and more flexible.  Thank you, yoga.

So I just looked at my calendar for April and looks like I should be in town all month, which only means that I need to stick to my guns about making class 5 times a week.  That is my goal for April.  Crazy to think that the first quarter of 2010 is nearly over.  Namaste.
