let's get physical

Guys, downward dog is the worst.

THE. WORST.

I’ve done yoga every now and then in the past, and now I’m trying to make it a regular part of my life.

There’s just one problem. I hate downward dog.

It’s a very basic pose, but I keep feeling like I’m doing it wrong.

Which just means that I have to work to make it my b!tch. Right?!?

Really, though.

Whenever I assume the position my feet never completely touch the ground, and my arms burn.

Still, I have to believe that I’ll get better.

If like me, you’re frustrated, here are a couple of links to tips on doin’ the ‘dog:

What Yoga Beginners Need to Know About Downward Dog – via MindBodyGreen. I love the title of that article. It sounds like they’re preparing me to join a secret society. 😉

I look forward to improving!
