Every evening I’ve been diligently practicing my yoga challenge and so far, so good. The more difficult poses haven’t begun yet and, for the moment, my yoga life is pretty easy. The daily instagram selfie part of the challenge, however, is not so easy. I’m just not a selfie lover of that magnitude and, honestly I’m finding it tales a lot of effort to post a great selfie every single day. So, what I’m going to do is document the more photogenic poses and you’ll have to trust me that I’m either doing or desperately attempting to do the rest.
Luckily, however, last night happened to be a really great night for yoga and yoga photos too. It started with an outdoor class, overlooking the ocean, taught by teacher extraordinaire, Mike Nichols (pictured above). It was hot, sweaty, challenging and awesome: everything a good yoga session should be.
After class my friend, Louise, and I walked along the beach, barefoot in the sand, to the Sailing Club for a glass of après yoga wine.
I posed for my challenge selfie #4 along the way, stretching and extending my legs as much as I possibly could. It’s not yoga perfection but yoga is supposed to be about the journey, not the destination, right? Right.
