general blather, YoMo

June 3, so far, so good

It’s the third day of YoMo, and I’m doing fine. My husband has taken yoga classes a couple of times but found it insufficiently fast and competitive. However, he’s having back trouble, and he asked me to get him started with a short yoga routine.

I’ve practiced with him for two days now. We did Virasana (hero), Adho Mukha Virasana (downward facing hero), Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward facing dog), Uttanasana (standing forward bend), Malasana (garland), Jathara Parivartanasana (turning the belly), and Savasana (corpse). I had to restrain myself from adding more, because I want the practice to be easy and straightforward so he’ll keep doing it.

This is helpful for keeping me on track for YoMo.

  1. This blog is hugely helpful for all sorts of reasons, ranging from how to improve in a pose to how to keep yoga absorbing and fun for the neophyte. And with YoMo that’s even more the case. So clear and understandable — thanks!
