The universe is conspiring against me. Earlier in the week, I was looking at a yoga website and saw a photo of someone in the tortoise pose, and couldn’t help thinking “How the hell do you even get into that position let alone stay in it???!!”.
Well folks, at last night’s yoga class I found out, and I have to say that once you are there, and relax into it, it’s actually quite a comfortable pose to be in. Who’d have thought?
Anyway, I’m pretty chuffed that at 50 I can get my legs over my shoulders like that. I’m seriously more flexible, and fitter than I was in my 20’s – a misspent youth of gigs, rock pubs, and parties – and that’s a great feeling mentally AND physically.
