From land to sea

27 Aug

OK – I saw the Health magazine on yoga on a horse and determined (like the magazine) I would never try yoga and dressage mixed together.

Sunset Magazine this month has Yoga on a surfboard. Yes – really. Apparently it is great for people who want an extra core burn. I know if I were 20, I would have been all over this. So why not at 50? I actually think I would do this. The surfboard is anchored and the actual board is a bit larger than a typical board. And, when I get too hot – just have a little less balance and “oops” fall off, cool off and get back on board.

The more I think about this, I think I would be terrible at yoga on a board, but I would love it. And, I would much rather fall in the ocean than fall on a steaming pile of horse manure. Just sayin’

    My own yoga teacher tried this last week. She’s very fit, as you can imagine, and she could barely walk on Monday… her hips were screaming at her for being so stupid!

      I imagine it is very tough on the core – I would probably spend most of my time climbing back on the board.
