Plentiful Earth's #30DaysMagicalRoots Challenge Day 7: Yoga

I admit, I was dreading this one.

I know that the conventional wisdom is that "Yoga is for everyone!"

Yeah. Well, my body is just not built that way. Even in high school, I was unable to do splits or any kind of flexible stuff. My body just does not move that way. I've tried it, several times. Teachers are amazed by my lack of flexibility and think I'm just being resistant when my body will just not fold like an origami crane.

But in the spirit of this challenge, I decided to do Cobra Pose. As a sloucher, I know I need to open up my chest and get the blood flowing to my shoulders. I can do that. Corpse Pose and Child's Pose are also fine.

My flexible cats are mocking me. But I can deal with that.


  1. I WORK at a yoga studio and haven't had time for any real practice yet, and it's been a loooooong time, so I hear ya. My back rejects the notion, but as I just hit 40, things are stiffer and achier than they should be, so I know I need to do it. As soon as the other job wraps up, it'll be time.

    1. I hear ya. My knees are not the knees they were pre-forties. Keep me posted! I'd love to hear how it goes!
