Why Can’t I Just Figure This Out…or Maybe I Should Just Grab a Beer.
At our weekly Elephant yoga sessions, I find myself looking like the person at the party that is too drunk for their own good. I stumble when my pelvis is supposed to be scooped. I feel like hurling during my downward dog. I find myself wanting to sleep at the end, when the blanket is on top of me.
My fellow classmates seem to breeze through each pose, and I am stuck there wondering if yoga isn’t for me. To make myself feel better, I looked for yoga poses that mirrored my life. Hopefully this video, shows you that yoga can be for drinkers and regular people too.
