Downward Facing Dog

I'm a lucky duck. I've got an amazing boyfriend who is willing to go along with my whimsical cravings and sometimes even more whimsical behavior. While riding the train home, I told the amazing Justin Nelson that I was excited because my long awaited yoga DVD was supposed to arrive that day.  I then told him how much I was craving pizza.  What did Justin do? He bought a pizza, changed into some over-sized gym shorts and did 40 minutes of yoga with me. Best boyfriend ever.

I wish I had documented the experience as it was quite hilarious. Alas, I didn't take any pictures so this will have to suffice.

First of all, if you haven't tried out Rodney Yee's yoga DVDs, you're missing out. I'm new to yoga and this tough but manageable.  Plus, I can't afford to spend $125 a month for in person yoga lessons so paying $10 for a DVD is awesome.

This is the DVD I got. It's great.
Yoga quite literally knocked Justin's socks off. He was so impressed with it that while in the downward facing dog pose, I heard "Oh no! My sock!" Thud. Sock, off.  Any yoga-like meditation that was happening ended in that moment with riotous laughter.
The downward facing dog: Justin's favorite pose.
We thought we looked like hot stuff. But I'm sure we really just looked like a tangle of spaghetti noodles.

This is what we thought we looked like 
This is what we actually looked like
Needless to say, I will strongly encourage Justin to be my yoga partner... forever.  Never fear Justin, with me and Rodney, you too can do this:

And just because I'm a little vain, I just want the world to know that I did yoga with my brother in front of Stonehenge.
My Warrior One pose could use a little work but still, this is cool.
