Twist - IF




It took me a while to think of something for this week's prompt - Twist, and then it came to me. A yoga twist! Of course, I've been a practitioner for 10 years and a teacher for the last four. Twists are so beneficial, releasing toxins, strengthening the spinal muscles and toning the abdominals, to name a few. This particular asana (pose) is Matsyendrasana.

This is posted in response to Illustration Friday.

One of the things at the top of my list is to get back to yoga. This is a perfect response for twist!

I finally made my choices in the Thinking Bloggers Award, and I have to say I nominated you right back. I had to! You are one of the most inspirational people I know and it just wouldn't seem right to pass you over. Thanks for all of your beautiful posts. Namaste...~L~
