Yoga is for SKINNY People

*ducks and hides behind the couch until everyone calms down*

Yes, I said that.  No, it’s not what you think.

This is me doing the Bharadvaja’s Twist pose:

This is how a skinny person looks doing the Bharadvaja’s Twist:

And that is how I *want* to look doing it.

I love this particular stretch.  I used to be able to do it fairly well.  My belly gets in the way.

What I love about yoga is that there are variations no matter what size or shape you’re in.

Arthur's Transformation

 

So yoga is for skinny people – but when anyone does it on a regular basis, there’s all sorts of benefits.

I love yoga.   And eventually I’ll be able to do the Bharadvaja’s Twist the same way as the lady above.  AND I’ll be able to run like Arthur.

In the meantime… I do it anyhow… because I love how I feel when I do it.
