Day 21 – Welcome February

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Crazy to think that February is already here.

Today’s photo should be of the Toe Stand Pose, however, since I cannot do it AT ALL, then I just stay in the Tree Stand Pose instead.  If you want a little entertainment, then use Google Images to see what it looks like.

Following, Tree/Toe Stand, then you go into Savasana, which is the dead body pose.  I didn’t have Bill photograph me doing that, as there isn’t too much skill involved, so I didn’t see the point.  So on we go to Pavanamuktasana, Wind Removing Pose.

So the idea of this one is that you interlace your fingers and then pull your knee towards your armpit.  I believe you eventually get your knee on the ground?  Not sure.  At the same time, you try to get the back of your neck on the floor.  I used to be able to get the back of my neck on the floor, but not any more.  But I will get there again.  When the instructors come by and push on your leg, that is always helpful.

Today’s instructor was Steve, with the sexy voice.  Never a problem to listen to him.  He is also a devote attendee to yoga class, so I am more interested in learning/listening to someone that puts in the time that I do.  When you don’t see the other instructors in class or talk about going to class or talk about doing the postures, it is a little more believable, if that makes sense.

Overall, it was a good class today!  I enjoyed it.  90 minutes tomorrow.  Gotta get a goodnight’s sleep tonight.
