Day 73 – Quick And Dirty

Hand to Feet Pose 5/12/10

Of course, today was quick and dirty as usual.  Yay!  There were 5 people in class this morning.  If nicer weather is a sign of smaller class sizes, bring it on!  I love smaller classes, especially when someone isn’t so close to me that I can smell them when they start sweating.  I swear I have a better nose and better ears than most people.  Sometimes Bill (boyfriend) wonders how I can smell or hear something, and believe me, it isn’t always to my advantage as I am often annoyed at little sounds!

Today’s pose is hands to feet pose, and I would like to be better at this one at this point in time, as I used to be a lot more smashed together than I appear in the photo, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case.  When I injured my hamstring on Day 22, I really did a number on it and when I try to get in this posture deeper, I feel the love that my hamstring refuses to give.

Hands to Feet Pose 5/12/10

I have read or heard that the idea of this pose is to get your head to touch the top of your feet.  Seems like I am miles away from that when I am in the posture – I did remember how it felt when I didn’t have a belly.  That was joyous – I would just suck in what I had of a stomach and then fall down 2 more inches!  Not giving up hope folks – there’s always hope.  Too bad my hair isn’t the top of my head – as I would be like 6 inches away from the goal. Now I am about 12 inches, I think.

Oh! I meant to mention that I am going to see a Sports Medicine doc in a few weeks to have him look at my knee that I have been bitching about.  Should be interesting – hopefully I will not be out of commission from yoga at all or for not too long.  Since today was the 60 minute class I decided to do a few of the postures that my left knee hurts in – felt good to give those muscles a stretch, but my knee did take a beating.  I still love it though and it still loves me.  We have to.

Namaste and happy weekend.
