Yoga is hard. Beginning yoga is harder, because you have to wrench your neck around to watch the teacher to make sure your hand is on the correct side of your leg (it invariably isn't). Beginning yoga at home includes all of that, with the addition of a few added levels of difficulty:
1) make sure Mr Accident isn't shuffling down the corridor and unfortunately sees the rear view of my downward dog as his first daily impression of his loving wife;
2) stop the baby from pulling (or standing!) on my hair. It's tied back, but my fringe is in serious need of a trim. It's about to invade New Zealand; and
3) stop the toddler from using me as a tunnel. Especially when I'm lying down.
Do yoga people have grading belts or achievement badges or something? Cause I think I totally earned one this morning.
