Still about Yoga

So we're still "practicing" yoga at home. Lucas is really enjoying it! I focus on only five asanas (yoga poses), so that it is fun and not boring or long to him. It's a fun time with his mom, he enjoys being able to repeat the poses and with time his balance will increase. He loves the Tree asana most, go figure it... We make the Mountain, the Cow/Dog, the Butterfly, the Bridge and the Tree. At the end of the "session", we keep the Corpse pose, listening to a Wiccan song called Little bell, which Lucas says it sound like rain. It's vey relaxing and he loves stay on the mant with eyes closed holding my hand.

Miss Yves! I totally agree with you, a teacher is essential, and as a friend here in Copa teaches for adults at a Zen School, he gave me the instructions about the correct breathing, posture, and which poses should be avoided, like inverted ones, so I'm pretty sure we're on the right path. Thanks for your concern!


All I say is that I'm very excited with it. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm completely sedentary since my pregnancy - it was a risk-pregnancy, because I have a very small double womb, I'm a living X File, so I had to stay in bed all the time (I never read so many books and watched so many DVDs like then, besides sleeping! LOL), and after Lucas was born, time shrank to a scary level. It was more than time for me to start something or I'd get a lower-quality health, and I believe that yoga is a good way to wake up my now lazy body. Let's see how we'll be in a couple of months! And yes, I still want more feedback about your yoga experiences, please!

I love yoga! That's so neat that your son is interested in doing it with you, sounds like fun!

I had yoga class twice a week for several years, then had to stop because of health issues. I still do some occasional yoga, but I miss having a regular practice.

I have to go look up that song! I don't have any Wiccan music and this has got me very curious.

I miss yoga. I did it at home all the time but lately have been uninspired. I've been looking around for teachers and there may be one last place that might work out so keep your fingers crossed for me.

I find tree pose so challenging! He sounds like quite the little yogi.

Thanks for the suggestion on ABC Wednesday! I checked it all out, and it looks like fun, so I'll think I will try it out tomorrow. Looks like fun!

Sorry, as I've been away my visiting been even more IFFY!
Your fellow Brazilians that I met in Brigthon were amazing & I adored the music.
Also Fernanda & Netto [the quatarist] have been in touch with me - which I find wonderful.

Love Blue

I haven't tried yoga yet. I think it would be good to sign up for some classes here, but you know how I hate taking time away from V. She's too small to do yoga with me.

I just read about a tribe in Pakistan called the Kalash. They're a Pagan tribe. Their culture just seems fascinating and the way they dress is just beautiful with bright colors. Here's a youtube slideshow http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4X5zptHGjrI&feature=related

Thanks for the post! It reminds me of my need to return to my own yoga practice.

Many blessed asanas to you and yours!
