Yoga Challenge – Day #18 

[t gellenbeck]

If I don’t want to share my mat, yoga must be done either during nap time, after bed time or at a studio.  Otherwise, my little guy [and often my Golden Retriever, Murphy] tends to cramp my style.  I can’t help but laugh at his desire to climb on me, jump, tumble and giggle on the mat!  So we made up a quick yoga sequence that we run through on days we want a little momma/baby time.

Today’s posture, like so many others, is another challenging one… Eka Pada Koundinyasana II.  If you’re a beginner, just practice any of the other poses that you’ve been wanting to work on.
