Yikes! I asked my husband to take some photos of me doing yoga, and it was very instructive. I know perfectly well how stiff I am, but I don’t really ever get to see it. I just want to reach right into these photos and push on my body to get it into better alignment!
(Sorry about the dog. I was trying to get photos of us both doing Adho Mukha Svanasana – downward facing dog.)
The last thing I should say in this post is that I could be a little kinder to myself. If I were teaching I’d never speak to a student this way. That’s a pretty big piece of self-instruction right there.
