Bird of Paradise

I got a Groupon for a new yoga studio not too long ago and went yesterday for my first class there.  It was an all levels Vinyasa class.  And holy downward dog I am feeling it today.  I'm still relatively new to yoga-I've done maybe 12 classes total with an instructor-but I feel like I did pretty well.  Balance has usually been my goal intentioni for my classes, but I've set myself a new yoga goal.  THIS:

This is Bird of Paradise pose.  It's a binding pose which was too difficult for me to do.  I have issues with my hips and with balance, so I feel like if I achieve this pose-and can hold it for a repectable amount of time-I will have accomplished something.

Wish me luck!  Better yet, wish that I'll be able to get out of the pose once I get into it...

Wordy Wednesday

I made myself a little work/office space at home.  I really wanted a print from the Wizard of Oz (my favorite movie of all time), but I couldn't find one that I liked.  So I made one.  I just got some heavy paper and a cheap frame from Michael's and voila-custom print!
