I hate Monday mornings, but I love Monday nights! Tonight's yoga class was awesome. The instructor must have decided that we were a class of overachievers or something, because she offered some more advanced variations of poses for those of us willing to try them...and I love a challenge. I was one of two people in my class that achieved One Legged King Pigeon Pose (also called Royal Pigeon). It looks something like this:
I really like pushing both my mind (which often tries to convince me that I'll never be able to do the pose) and my body (which often resists doing what I want it to) in that class.
My instructor also has a "theme" for each week and this week's theme was Energy. Essentially, our bodies are full of energy and yoga maximizes that energy. Interesting.
Now it's time to take my zen-ed out self to bed!
Do you practice yoga? If so, what's your favorite pose?
