Deeply criminal

And no doubt deeply painful to my friend Laksmi, who clearly has NOT been practicing her voodoo on my backbends, which suck some serious ass. II thought we had a deal, man? Now, I know there's a lushly redheaded Barbie with my kundalinquist headband on it, but I also know that she hasn't been doing her backbends. Has she? Nope, didn't think so. Because if she were out there in the Pacific Northwest working her magic, I wouldn't be wincing in discomfort every time I have to lift up into a backbend. And my updogs wouldn't look like total shit. Don't tell me you didn't notice.

i see, i see. I see what this is about! A couple of months I said, right? Go take a look. You're right. I haven't been working on you. I need to get the doll out again. I've been all caught up in my own little bitcha mayurasana drama over here. And your hop outta that headstand is pretty nice, but I've got you beat on the arm balance and the folding into lotus. BTW, i love the way you try to sneak into the shot like, 'hey, um, i'm not really turning the camera on myself'.

The Kukkutasana is beautiful, Lauren. This is how my teacher wants me to get into karandavasana, until I balance well on the arms.

I did notice the painful looking upward dog.
You need to get your hips more forward...pull the shoulders back and open. Not that I know anything about yoga(disclaimer).

Great, I love it. This will be my version from now on too. I must try it. So good.
