It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had the free time to attend a yoga class. I also haven’t been doing too much exercise since I started graduate school, but I thought I should give Superhero Yoga another shot. This is also provides me with a legitimate excuse to wear my comfy yoga pants.
First of all, I’m going to be upfront and admit that I don’t do a lot of running. Honestly, the last time I ran for real was for the Presidential Fitness test when I was in elementary school. Perhaps my lack of experience as a runner is why I had so much trouble with the Flash Ignition Pose.
|Maybe this would be easier if I had yellow boots?|
The Flash Ignition Pose requires a wide stride. For advanced athletes who can dislocate their hips, the left leg should cross in front of the right with a big step. The right shoulder should be lower than the left and twist forward. Both hands form fists, and the head looks upward with a smile.
As I stated earlier, I am not an athlete by any stretch of the imagination, so I was unable to balance completely on my right front foot with my legs crossed. This is why my other leg is still visible. I also was unable to get my right thigh to touch my abdomen, pull my left shoulder all the way back, and manage to smile as big as the Flash!
