Yoga Gone Awry

I stretch deeply,
I bend and twist.
My rear and ear
Suddenly kiss!

Human pretzel,
Body and mind.
Relaxation
I do not find.

    1. I know, Liz! It all depends on the instructor/DVD. Some are good, some not so much. =)

  7. Too fun! You are much more flexible than I -- no rear-ear dalliances here, I fear. :-)

  8. Lots of fun, Bridget--love your human pretzel. (When I first took yoga many years ago my heart would race as soon as the relaxation started. These days I'm so tired by the time we get to the relaxation that I come close to nodding off.)

    1. Thanks, Buffy! I know I've had different experiences with yoga at different points in my life. I even took pre-natal yoga when I was 6+ months pregnant - now THERE'S a vision to ponder. LOL! =)

  9. Your topics are just delightful, Bridget. Love the 'human pretzel' aspect with ear touching some mysterious body part. Great poem.

  10. Cute, Bridget. I'm a long time yoga person. People can take it too seriously. There's no shame in falling over, finding your rear in where you weren't expecting it, or looking like a pretzel. Your poem captures the playfulness of yoga!

    1. Thank you, Laura! I love yoga - I'm just not so good at it sometimes. But I always come back for more. Sometimes my 9 y/o does yoga with me in the living room. Love. =)
