Does anyone else hate yoga? Wait, let me rephrase: Does anyone who currently has ovaries and/or for whom ovaries were a standard option on their particular make and model hate yoga? Because it seems to be a chick thing that ovaries and yoga go together. I do like the idea of yoga, but the actual execution has never been my thing. I like a lot more violence in my sports. Like football. And running.
Not that yoga can't be violent. Every time I have tried yoga in a formal class-type situation, I've pulled the shit out of one shoulder or the other. I'm guessing it's a combination of it looks easier than it really is and having shoulders that like to separate from my body.
But I'm going to give it a shot. My orthopedist wants me to do some cross training in this next marathon phase. And I'd like to regain some of my childhood flexibility. When I could do stuff like this:
The gal on the right? No joke, when I was about 8 to 10 or so I could do that. (I probably could've done like the gal on the left too but I never tried.) Then the boob fairy came and I couldn't do that no more.
So, wish me luck that I'm knot going to dislocate a shoulder or a hip or anything.
