Finally able to do the Yoga Child Pose correctly...

Friday, August 14, 2009

I have a Beginners Yoga DVD that I do when I feel the need to relax and unwind. It works, for the most part, except that there were a couple of poses that I could never do correctly, like the child's pose, which is probably the easiest for most people. The reason I couldn't do it was because my belly was too big and I couldn't bend all the way over. So I kind of just sat on my knees, bent over facing forward, instead of with my forehead touching the carpet. Well, last night was the first time ever that I could bend over and put my forehead on the carpet. I have now conquered the child pose!!! And I realized that I need a better carpet cleaner, LOL.

    Wonderful! I have not tried Yoga myself, however would like to someday!
    Have you tried Pilates? It is similar to Yoga, I hear. That's what I like to do. My best friend got me a DVD of it one year for my Birthday.
    Well, I will definitely try Yoga! Sounds like fun!

    LOL, too! I started doing pushups a few months ago, and had the exact same reaction - this smells DUSTY! :)

    Congratulations on mastering the Child's Pose - it's actually much tougher than it looks, as you discovered.

    Keep up the great work!

    Cheers,
