On Wednesday, I went with my friend Lucy and her parents to Pewit’s Nest And Devil’s Lake for hiking and some swimming. It was a ton of fun and I took over 400 photos of the gorge and the hiking trails. Plus, Lucy took some amazing shots of me. Double plus, first time wearing a bikini in a year, even after my weight gain! I’m proud of myself.
Crow pose practice.
Start standing. Fold forward and bring the fingertips to the floor in front of the toes. Inhale and lift the torso parallel to the floor. Start to lift the left leg up and back and at the same time, lift the left fingertips off the floor. Begin to rotate the left hip open, stacking the left hip on top of the right hip. Keep the standing leg strong and flex through the left foot. Keep the gaze down towards the right foot and lift the right fingertips off of the floor, coming to balance just on the right foot. Stay for 3 steady breaths. For the bind, start to bend the left leg, bringing the heel towards the body. Grab the foot with the left hand and kicking the foot into the hand to open the chest. Keep rolling the top shoulder open and hold for 3 breaths. Release and switch sides.
Good for balance and coordination. Back and hip stretch.

Yoga may be blissful, but it isn’t cheap! Depending on where you live, classes can run you an average of $15 to $20 a pop. Dropping $50 or more for yoga classes each week isn’t an option for everyone, but we can all benefit from a regular practice.
Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.
