Yoga and Peanut

A few people have asked me how yoga is going and I must report that it's not going too well. I went the first weekend and was very gung ho about it, but I've realized that the times at this particular location aren't really working with my schedule. I had intended on going on both Saturday and Sunday since I couldn't do any weekday classes. However, because I run Saturday mornings, I had this awkward lull between running and yoga that prohibited me from starting the rest of my day. Sunday is also hard b/c it didn't start until after 10, when I am usually already up and in my routine. I am going to make myself go this Saturday though, so I'll reevaluate after this go around. And Jessica, I'm still having a hard time with the whole downward dog thing too! It's more comfortable that it used to be, but my hand keep slipping, even with the mat. I look around and seem to be the only one with the same problem, so either I am just weird, or because I'm not flexible enough, I put too much pressure on my hands. I'm afraid to ask. Maybe we need a remedial downward dog lesson :)


Onto the second part of my post's title...Peanut. This weekend I happened to have my camera in hand when Peanut started this little move. I was actually trying to take a picture but realized it was on movie mode and just let it go. For some reason when I rotated it on my computer and imported it here, it went back to the original. If anyone knows how to fix it please let me know! I hope you enjoy the show!

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who can't do the downward dog. I think you are right, I think we are putting too much weight on our hands. I know I am not flexible AT ALL. I need to do a little practicing before next Monday's class. We definitely need a remedial downward dog session :)
