Carry a big stick

This blog was quiet for a little bit, while I was enjoying workshops with Arun.  I'm still getting ready for Intro 1 assessment, which is less than a month away.

Earlier this week, I saw this picture on the IYNAUS facebook page:
I thought it looked wonderful and couldn't wait to try it.  I reposted it on my page and some friends suggested trying the dowel in Utthita Trikonasana and Bharadvajasana.  What a great idea!  So I started working through the Intro 1 syllabus with a dowel.  Here are my attempts.
 This one, Gomukhasana arms, I learned from Laurie Blakeney











These last two were my favorites, although the Marichyasana 1 was pretty amazing as well.

So go to your local hardware store and get yourself a big stick to use for your yoga practice.
