Oh boy! Home practice is FUN!

Especially when your camera-happy 9-year old is hanging around. I have to be honest: when I started practicing, the kids were in the playroom on the other side of the apartment, and when I got to the Marichyasanas, I took off my shirt to make binding easier. Suddenly, right as I'm vinyasa-ing out of Mari D, second side, I see Brian out of the corner of my eye with his camera. Hurrying to put my shirt back on, I'm like, "Brian!! Don't you dare take a picture of me naked!" Brian's like, "You're not naked. You're wearing pants."

Argh.

Anyway, I figured, if he's going to insist on becoming Yoga Chickie's (sole) papparazi, I might as well tell him when to shoot. My practice became something like this: Inhale the legs around the arms, cross the feet, "Brian shoot!", Exhale to slowly lower the head, "Brian shoot!", five quick breaths, bhandas held, lift up and extend legs out into Tittibasana, "Brian, now!" Jump back, "Brian shoot!" He missed that one. But admittedly, it's a tough shot. Otherwise, I think he did a really great job....


Bhujapidasana: vinyasa in....










the state of the asana....










vinyasa out...












Kurmasana...












Doga....

Lewis initiated this, and I just went for it. Tabletop (a variation on Purvotanasana ensued)...











Tomorrow, Shala X. I promise. I swear. I will get my ass there. I will. I will. IwillIwillIwillIwillIwill.

Your photos are so much fun! I'd love to give a camera to someone to document my practice. And i'm WAY jealous of your Kurmasana ... i've been working on that lately!

Seeing Lewis on your mat reminded me that whenever I unrolled my mat at home, my dog assumed it was for his benefit, and I used to have to hurry to occupy the mat before he did...he died in June 2005...
