Bow Pose or Dhanurasana

Bow Pose or Dhanurasana 8/10/10

Today’s class was great – there were only 4 people taking the class – including me – and everyone was synchronized.

It makes for a nicer class when everyone synchronized. I feel more balanced and tend to have more energy.

I’ve gotta make it more often to yoga as my feet have been hurting and I notice that if I don’t go for awhile and go again that they hurt and cramp. There’s just nothing that seems to make my feet work and stretch Ike yoga does.

Today’s posture is the Bow Pose or Dhanurasana Bikram Yoga pose. I suck at this posture now. Seriously suck at it. I’m so tight and fat I can barely reach my feet -awesome!

I also struggled in hero’s pose and rabbit today.

The reason why today’s post is titled, “Timeout 1, 2, 3” is because today’s teacher, Barb, likes to say, “1, 2, 3” for the time that it takes you to get out of a floor posture and get back into savasana.  I used to like it, but today it drove me crazy because it reminded me of being 8 years old and my mom putting me in time-out at the count of 3.  What are your thoughts on whether or not I should say something to her?  I sorta hate it.

Namaste.
