Yoga....bend me, shape me, anyway you want me

When I first heard about yoga, I naively assumed it meant I would sit cross legged, wearing a festive turban and clanking little gold cymbals while chanting, “Ommmmmmmmm” for a few minutes; quickly becoming a more enlightened being.

Brother, was I wrong.

I began practicing yoga in the late 80's. I started with Hatha Yoga and then tried various other styles.

It’s not that I’m a die hard yoga practitioner, but I do find that if I make time to practice it even just a few times a week, I feel better.

What’s illusory about yoga is that some of the poses appear rather easy and simple, however once you try them you discover how commanding and potent they are.

Yoga is not only about the body, but more so how the body, mind, and spirit work together.

When the three are in balance they create a “wholeness.”

Yoga is like taking a never ending journey, because wholeness is never permanent.

I’ve been very blessed with a naturally flexible body, but that doesn’t mean the yoga poses are easy for me. It solely depends on the state of mind and spirit I’m in.

Sometimes while holding a pose, I will suddenly feel emotional and break into tears. That’s because yoga will bring up anything that’s been harboring inside me that has not been expressed. Other times, I just feel relaxed and flowing with the poses; almost in a state of meditation.

Without getting “too technical” about yoga, I would like to share one of my favorite poses because it seems to be a real challenge for me at times.

This is called The Tree Pose.

The tree pose is beneficial for grounding and also balancing both sides of the brain. There are some days when I can freely move into this pose and hold it for 5-10 minuets. Then, there are other days when my body rocks, shakes, and topples. Sometimes I can hold the pose on one leg easily, but the other leg is more difficult.

Which means I’m out of balance.

Yet, after patiently staying with the pose a bit longer, I will usually move into a stillness, feeling much more centered.

It never ceases to amaze me how effective yoga is.

When I first started practicing I use to take group classes, however now I just practice at home. One of the reasons is because I can do it whenever I want, and at my own pace.

The other reason is this…….




Because trust me….you'll definately sound enlightened!

  1. OMG you make me laugh. Ummmmm...that poot thang really happened in my yoga class. To a high school football coach no less! Luckily I wasn't down wind of him that day!

    I love yoga and meditation. I can't imagine my day without it.

    You always amaze me as to what you are into. I hope I get to meet you IRL one of these day. It would be an honor....and a hell of a lot of fun!

    Hope your Tuesday is beautiful.

    Bwhahahaahahahahaha!!!

    OMG, isn't that the worst? One time I thought I was going to "toot" myself, but I held it in for 45 mins because I REFUSED to let it out - HA! My stomach was in agony!

    I had a feeling you also enjoyed yoga because I know how much you enjoy taking care of your health.

    You GO, girl!

    Thank you sooo much for stopping by tonight, and for your sweet words.

    You made my night! Thank you!

    I originally had a photo of a CAT for the opening photo, but then I saw the DOG and fell in love with it. Isn't he/she cute?

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, bud!

  5. I have so much to say about this. I think this is the first place we might be different. I am the most inflexible person you have ever met...seriously I am stiffer than a board...I am not even sure I was born with joints! I have tried and tried and tried over the years to incorporate yoga into my physical routine.I have tried it all...the worst being Bikram Yoga. I was in a room at 120 degrees with a big fat Jewish guy trying to act like he was the Dali Lama. He did not even speak in full sentences i.e..."Put foot in hand...bend head down"...this was how he taught. Needless to say i never went back! I admire you that you are able to embrace all yoga has to offer. I know that one day I will find the right class which will suit my stiff body but free mind!

    By the way...saw SATC and absolutely loved it. We must confer when you are done seeing it. Samantha..to die for and the outifis outrageously amazing. Patricia Fields is truly an artist. I don't care if it got bad reiviews...I thought it was FABU!!!!

  6. Hellooooo Susie!

    "I have tried it all...the worst being Bikram Yoga."

    OMG......I CAN'T STAND BIKRAM YOGA, so I TOTALLY agree with you! Is that not TORTURE???? I can't stand to be hot to begin with, so to be in a room that's 120 degrees is like DEATH!

    Yes, you WILL find the right class to suit your body. We're all different, so we need different things

    The kind of yoga I practice is VERY gentle. It's nothing extreme or overly physical. It's a combination of MANY types of yoga. I like to practice at home because I can keep the room cool and airy.

    OMG!!!! I can't believe you saw SATC!!!!I'm going to see it tomorrow afternoon, so we MUST confer via email. I know (regardless of the reviews) I'm gonna love it. I was just talking to one of the girls I work with about Patricia Fields and how she got started in the movie industry. Fascinating story!

    Thank you so much for stopping by, Susie!

    It's ALWAYS such a delight talking with ya!

    Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day....X

  7. Hi Ron

    Well I don't exercise much so I will not be practicing yoga anytime soon or ever I think. :) I only take my dog for walks and climb the stairs in our home up and down and that is about how much exercise I get. Hope you had a nice Memorial Day yesterday. :)

  8. tooo funny. i do try that tree pose often and i make an attempt to do yoga on the wii fit. does that count? yes it does! my legs are the weakest links, but one time i was getting really good at not being wobbly - not any more.

    i'll have to remember not to run on the treadmill. hey accidents happen. lol

    urp.

  9. Ummmmm..... Nope. LOL

    It's not that I didn't try it--cuz I did.
    It's not that I'm not flexible--cuz I am. (must be all that sidewalk chalk stuff, huh?)
    It's not that I don't think it's a good thing--cuz I do.

    I kept opening one eye and lookin' around and having 'oh look.....a chicken!' moments.
    Ohmygosh.......I don't know how you can be still for TEN MINUTES--and on one leg, no less!

    Nope. LOL I just don't work that way. Ever. LOL

  10. I totally was NOT expecting that last pick..hilarious that Jeff called it the "stinking dog", ha! I have a friend who wanted me to do yoga with her but I wouldn't because she is extrememly competitive and I knew it was a recipe for disaster.Right I was, she pulled her back out in the first session!

    Yes...absolutely!!! I keep hearing great things about wii fit. I honestly don't know the details of what it is, so I think I need to google it and find out more.

    Isn't it funny how sometimes you can do the "tree pose" with ease, and other times it's soooo challenging?

    "i'll have to remember not to run on the treadmill. hey accidents happen."

    "Ohmygosh.......I don't know how you can be still for TEN MINUTES--and on one leg, no less!"

    Listen, I totally know what you mean (us, being Libras), because we are basically "moving people" not "standing still people", so it's taken me a loooooooooong time to get use to yoga.

    So, just keep doing your "sidewalk chalk stuff", dear lady. Because that too is a wonderful way to exercise. PLUS, it makes the sidewalks look SOOOOO pretty!

    Always great seeing ya, Mel!

    OMG...I know!!!! I died laughing at his comment!!!!

    And good for you for not doing yoga with your competitive friend because that totally defeats the purpose. There is no competition with yoga, because everyone is going to execute the poses differently. I use to have a friend in high school who was the same way. Whenever she played ANY game of ANY kind, she played to destroy you, not have fun.

    Which is why I would never play with her - HA!

    Thanks for stopping by, SC!

  15. Omg, you are hilarious, Ron! And you're so right, many of these poses aren't easy! Doubly hard when one poses with one's significant other. Recommend OM, Yoga in a Box for Couples, so that when you do poot, you have someone else to blame! ;)

  17. LOL you're naughty!

    I do Pilates every day, I have a Pilates Performer machine in the spare bedroom. Since I have been trying to lose weight because of the diabetes I have also been exercising with a Wii Fit my son has let me borrow, and have tried some of the Yoga exercises - sheesh they're difficult! I can just about manage the half moon pose without falling over. ;)

    OMG...I can't believe you mentioned Pilates because a girl I sometimes work with just got her certificate as a Pilates teacher and is begging me to take one of her classes. Now that you reminded me, I WILL do it. I hear it's faaaaaabulous too!

    Yup, some of the yoga poses are extremely difficult for me too - half moon being one of them.

    Need to experience Wii Fit, because everyone is talking about it.

    I do so want to TRY yoga but I'm chicken. I know it's really good for you. I walk, but, I need to do something else. Ok... NOT chicken just lazy and need to get off my fat butt and just do it! NO, not THAT.... yoga, silly! ;-)

    "I guess you don't want to be doing the downward facing dog if you're downwind of the stinky dog? hmmmnnnn?"

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...nooooooo waaaaaaaay!

    That would be a "stinky downward facing dog", as Jeff so hysterically called it!

    Listen, if you ever want to try yoga, just rent a tape or DVD from your local library first, just to see if it's something you'd enjoy, before taking a classs. That's what I did.

    And if you're walking, that's GREAT exercise anyway.

  23. Ron,I love yoga! I have taken classes on and off since I was in my early 20s. The first time I took it was with my Mom. She remembered having taken it with a girlfriend years before and we ended up with the same teacher. She loved it, but could never get over the whole mindset piece of it. For me, that is the best part, as it lets me let go of my day, my stresses and my inhibitions. Of course that is while trying to hold in any strays Poots that might care to escape. OOppp! Ha! You are hilarious.

  24. Hey Ron,

    Great Post Buddy, I thought yoga was more of a balancing of the mind sort of thing and your information about it was very interesting.

    The tree pose I would have a problem with especially if I was out in public, Cindy would yell something like "I'm not calling an ambulance if you break your neck" she used to say that when I'd pop wheelies in my wheelchair back when I was in it full time.

    If I could master the tree pose then the crutch lean would not be necessary---hmmmm something to think about.

    ReplyDelete
  25. hahahahaha, this has happened to just about everyone that ever has done yoga, especially in a very oh-so-public class, except of course, yours truly :)

    what a great post and how do you stand in tree pose, never, unless i am holding onto something have i been able to stand long in tree pose and i did yoga for years...i have terrible balance no matter...i wish i could now do it and sometimes get down and do child's pose just to stretch my back muscles, that tend to get tight with so much inactivity...my dream-someday to be back in the shape, with madonna arms, i was in when i did hours of yoga everyday...you do not mention meditation and i would have loved to hear more of your past experiences with it all...sounds like you made the rounds and it's good you have kept it up as it will serve you well as you grow older, it's the best exercise there is, i am convinced of it....that and laughing at your jokes :)

  26. Love that first picture. I think I've seen my dogs doing yoga from some of the positions I find them in. LOL
    I think it's wonderful you have been practicing for so long. I used to do it, and watched a show called 'Lilias, Yoga and You' that was on quite regularly on PBS. She was terrific.
    I took a class or two at night wayyy wayyy back when too, I think at my old high school. But unfortunately I have gotten away from it. I've tried to start up again over the years and for some reason I can't stick with it. But I know the benefits are there for those who do make it a regular discipline.
    Hey, have you ever heard of Baron Baptiste? Google and oogle him. He does his own brand of 'power' yoga and used to hold retreats. Yummy. LOL

    Have a great day!

    "the whole mindset piece of it. For me, that is the best part, as it lets me let go of my day, my stresses and my inhibitions."

    Me too! Doesn't it amaze you just how DEEP yoga goes? It's one of those things (yoga) that either "clicks" for someone or doesn't.

    "Of course that is while trying to hold in any strays Poots that might care to escape. OOppp!"

    Yup! I had a feeling you knew about and experienced yoga. The westcoast has been doing stuff like this for eons.

    " it's the best exercise there is, i am convinced of it...."

    It's like working out everthing at one time. Body-Mind-Spirit.

    I think we all have different forms of exercise that works for us individually. It's not for everyone, but it works for me.

  31. you are so good - making yoga a priority in your life. I am just way too sedentary and the thing is, I really do love yoga! It's so not easy, but I just do the best I can. And I always have an unusal sense of feeling both energized and relaxed when I'm through.

    Thank you for the link to the fragrance tutorial! Good to know. I'm clearly doing it all wrong. And as ususal, it is not surprising.

    "I really do love yoga! It's so not easy, but I just do the best I can. And I always have an unusal sense of feeling both energized and relaxed when I'm through."

    Exactly...me too! I just do the best I can. Some days it's easy and other days it's not. And you're soooo right...yoga does give you that feeling of being both relaxed and energized. That's why I enjoy it so much. And I can always tell when I need to do it, because I start feeling very out of balance with everything.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed the tutorial post, Diane! I decided to post it last year when readers were asking me about how to apply fragrance properly. Listen, anytime you think of something you would like me to share on my review blog, just let me know. I get the best post ideas from my readers.

  37. I used to think Yoga as something for the crunchy granola set, but an old girlfriend of mine insisted that I at least give it a try. Wow. It's amazing how the body reacts after a bit of Yoga. It's much like the feeling you get after experiencing a great run in the desert.

    Oh, and the "gas effect" ain't no joke :-P

    That's exactly what I did. I took a class for awhile and then I decided to just do it at home when I want. Honestly? The MAIN reason why I decided to do it at home is because I really don't care to be in a hot room with 20 other people SWEATING. Ewwwwwwwwww!

  41. Ive always been too intimidated to try taking an actual YOGA class.

    My mother and I might try doing it at home over the summer. Maybe when I feel like I know more what Im doing, I'll feel more comfortable joining a class?

  42. Yoga is tough. I have never been a big fan. Part of the problem may be I've never found a really good teacher. It does take a certain degree of patience. I like meditating when I can remember to do it. My only problem is that most of the time I just fall asleep. Maybe I should work on my priorities.

  43. Good Morning Meleah!

    OMG...you should see the way I do yoga at home - VERY untraditional. You know "us" Libras...we end up discovering ways to do things "OUR" way - HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!

    One of the things I REALLY like about yoga, is that it calms my "overly-thinking" mind.

    If you ever get the chance to try it, I think you might enjoy it.

  44. Hiya Jen!

    You said it...it's important to find the "right" teacher - someone you "click" with. Since yogo is all about "energy" you need to feel a good "connection" to the instructor.

    "I like meditating when I can remember to do it. My only problem is that most of the time I just fall asleep."

    OMG...me too! That's why I have to meditate sitting up because if I don't, I get soooo relaxed I catch myself falling asleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  45. I'd really like to start yoga classes but I think I should do some exercise first. I'm terribly uncoordinated but I do think it would be helpful for focusing.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hellooooooo Nitebyrd!

    Yes, you're right...yoga is great for focusing. And trust me, I'm not coordinated either. The reason why I really like yoga is because I find it a very effective way to do two things at once - work on the body and the mind. I don't do it every single day, mind you. Probably 2-3 times a week.

    "I'd die if I farted in class, just die!"
