"Just have fun with it," said the yoga master as she propelled her legs forward, balancing her body weight on just her arms while entering the "forearm headstand".
I opted out for "child's pose" and watched in awe. I'll try that pose later, I thought.
Day one of strength training arms by way of yoga, complete. Ladies, you know the arms I'm talking about; those I'm-not-afraid-to-wear-a-tanktop-and-wave arms. They don't exactly run in my gene pool, so I'm trying to change that small reality.
Besides, I love yoga. Beginner's yoga that is. Have you tried it? If not, you must at least once. I'm a fan of Tara Stiles and her beginner youtube videos that you can do in the privacy of your home.
I know I never look professional while trying the routines. Especially when Chad warns me-in earnest, mind you-not to collapse into the glass mirror on the other side of the room. Nevertheless, in the end I feel relaxed and well stretched.
What's your feel good go-to exercise routine? I'd love to hear!
