Tree Pose or Tadasana 8/10/10

My neighbor two doors down loves to burn Piñon – at least that’s what I think they’re doing. Could be incense. I type my posts in my backyard on my iPhone while my cats run around (I don’t let them stay outside by themselves), and I’m smelling that wonderful New Mexico smell. Sure makes me miss New Mexico.

Today’s class was uneventful. I was in between two guys so once we got to the floor, the smell was worse than normal. But beyond that there wasn’t anything in particular.

My knees were super tight in hero’s pose which wasn’t fun. I almost asked for a block for help. I go toMayo on the 19th for my one-year thyroid re-check. I’ll totally be asking about my knees.

Today’s pose is Tree Pose or Tadasana. I’m still working on opening my hips so I can actually do this posture. I’m much better with my left hip than I am with my right.

Hoping to have the strength to go to tomorrow’s 90 minute 6am-er.


Day 84 – Wobble, Wobble

Tree Pose or Tadasana

Tree Pose or Tadasana 5/12/10

Friday mornings I think have started to be my favorite classes.  I did ponder the fact this morning that I go in waves of what I like and dislike – for example, Maria’s crescendo thing is really driving me nuts right now, but I used to be totally annoyed by Aaron (this morning’s instructor) and he doesn’t really bother me all that much anymore.

The reason why today’s post is entitled, “Wobble, wobble” is because I was not steady today.  Wonder why some days your balance blows and other days it seems to be okay.  Strange.  Anyway, I totally wiped out during the prelims to hands to feet pose– fell back and landed on my ass and had to get up again.  It was awesome.  Awesomely embarassing!  That’s when you wish you weren’t in the front row!

Another sweet thing that happened today was after rabbit pose (or more appropriately named, smell-your-cleavage-pose), I was trying to redo my hair (it gets all jacked up because I have to move it so I can get into rabbit – I hate my hair on my neck – so it’s always in a bun) and my rubberband flew behind me and I couldn’t find it.  Then the chick behind me (who was gorgeous!) handed it to me.  After class I thanked her and told her that I couldn’t get my hair situated in Yoga (my hair hits just below my shoulders – so there’s a lot of it, but it’s thin) and always had to redo it after rabbit pose.  She said she understood and thought my rubberband was a bug flying at her. 

Today’s pose is Tree Pose or Tadasana.  This one is not so stellar because of the knee problem and the fact that my hips have decided that opening up is not something they’re into at the moment.  Oh well.  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Namaste!
