I’ve long had a love affairs with Yoga pants and I recently decided that it was about time that I actually tried out Yoga.  I know what you’re thinking….

No I didn’t expect to master it on my first try… I was hopeful to find something new that I’d enjoy…

I will admit that I did think I’d be doing something like this after a time or two… I mean seriously… I’ve heard that’s the best way to paint your own toe nails after all…

I’d like to talk with whoever’s in charge of this whole yoga marketing  hullaballoo… I mean really, I was disappointed to find that purchasing a yoga mat didn’t come with its own beach front real estate… you’d never know that from the pictures.

Anyways, I digress…. back to my first ever* yoga experience I showed up late for the class, stumbled over several downward dogs to fill in the only spot left… at the front of the room… of course! I solidified my newbie status by slip sliding around on the mat in my socks until the instructor told me to remove them… I was kinda bummed because I was wearing my new neon socks… new socks make me happy…

Back to class… I stumbled through an hour of a variety of positions that one can only surmise were named by a preschooler who overdosed on  juice boxes… I mean really… who comes up with these names?!?!?! I wish they’d let me have a go at it… I could have come up with several more colorful options.

All in all though I really enjoyed the class.  While I did notice that there was a steep learning curve, even beyond my sock wearing nightmare,  I am relieved to say that I was not the one who knocked over all the weight lifting equipment in the middle of the classical music interlude… thankfully someone else had that honor.

I do believe I will be going back.  Anything that will allow me to listen to soothing music and curl up in the fetal position during the work day is a-ok with me.  Even if I did resemble the photo above.

It may even become a new favorite pass time.  Although probably not as much as googling “funny yoga pictures”.  That will keep you entertained for hours.  Let me tell you.  I came across this little gem today.  I can’t imagine saying that to anyone though… yuck!

Now that’s love!

Have you ever tried yoga?  Can you think of some better names for the yoga poses?

Love Always,

* I lied. I experimented this one time in college… but literally fell asleep at the back of the class. I blame the teacher… no one should tell me to go to my happy place at 8am.
