One Hundred Forty Four

Pose: Seated One Legged Forward Fold

Location: The loft of our new house. AKA the first bedroom Lulu hasn’t had to share since becoming a big sister 10 years ago. Lulu has been spending a great deal of time up here. If I were 16 and had my own loft in a cool Barcelona apartment, maybe I wouldn’t want to leave either. So I invaded her room today and hung out for a bit. It’s super nice. I’m happy for her. I do have to remind her though….Barcelona is out there. You can’t stay in your room all day, every day.

Seventy One

A Year of Yoga: March 12, 2014

Pose: Handstand variation

Sanskrit: Adho Mukha Vrikshasana

Location: My new hallway. My new hallway is great for a couple of reasons. I still need wall support for my handstands and there’s not really a great place in the living room or bedroom. But this hallway is perfect. I have always wanted to live somewhere with nice hard wood floors. This is laminate flooring, but it’s still a huge step up from the cheap rental carpet that has been in every place I’ve lived. It’s also great for sliding on, as Lulu and Momo have discovered. Every room in the house has a door that opens/closes to this hallway. The layout is unlike anything I’ve seen in the states, but I really like it.

Thirty Seven

A Year of Yoga: February 6, 2014

Pose: Hero Series

Sanskrit: Vira-Parampara.

There are many poses that are a part of this series but my book doesn’t distinguish them separately. They’re all called Hero Series. So some other photos will have the same pose name.

Location: Front Yard. Ok, it may seem like I’m getting lazy by taking so many photos around my house. This may be partially true but I am justifying it based on the fact that I’m only going to be living here for 1 more month. I am trying to preserve memories. We have lived here for almost 9 years. I am ready to move on to new things but this has been a great home and I am grateful for the time we’ve lived here.

It was nice to get some rain today. So Cal has been extra dry this winter. It was a nice study break to get out in the crisp air and stretch.
