Heck of a Yoga Class
This morning I went to Elizabeth's challenging yoga class in Costa Mesa. She did all of my least favorite asanas, the ones that find me fruitlessly kicking without any action whatsoever. It is true that these are the poses that scare me most--handstand and pinchemeyerasana (sp?), related poses that require strong arms and shoulders I don't have. And then backbends on the ropes to the floor and an asana I don't know the name of in which one puts her shin up the wall. It always causes the most terrible toe and leg cramps for me! But I did pretty well... only hollered once.
