I was running late for work and had to ride my bike again today. That's another 14 miles and my legs were already sore from yesterday's ride and yoga. I was fighting doing yoga today and trying to make excuses as to why I could skip my second day. My legs are sore! I need to eat beforehand! I'm tired! My floors are cold! I told myself to shut up and choose less poses for today. I thought that sounded better than not doing yoga at all.
Pranayama Deep Breathing- Felt much smoother than yesterday.
Half Moon Pose- Nina joined me on the mat for this one.
Standing Head to Knee Pose- Nina proceeded to rub herself against my standing leg and her face against my lifted foot. Giggles ensued.
Standing Separate Leg Stretching Pose- Nina laid down on the mat, meowed in my face, and judged my worth by the distance between my forehead and the mat. The second set I made sure my forehead touched the ground and she cold shouldered me.
Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose- Nina did not like when my hands came down near her so she clawed and bit at them. I held my pose and she got pissed and sauntered off.
Tree Pose- If I were allowed to pick a favorite, this might be it. I did Toe Stand for second set.
Fixed Firm Pose- Love me some fixed firm.
Half Tortoise Pose- The stretch up through my shoulders feels great.
Camel Pose- I can't hold it as long as Bikram talks but I will keep trying. I was able to really shove my hips forward in the second set.
Rabbit Pose- Next round I will wear a sports bra...
Head to Knee Pose- I will keep my knee locked! I had flashes from when I did my triple in the spring and how much fun this pose was by the third class.
Spine Twisting Pose- Oh no wait, maybe this one is my favorite!
Blowing in Firm- He claps too fast for the second set.
All told, twelve poses and two breathing. Tomorrow there probably won't be a play by play because I will try to set a goal of more poses. Now I am drinking my kale-apple-carrot juice that I made between dinner and yoga. Oh, and I really need to clean the front of my stove it is really dirty!
