Yoga in Sedona with Rachel

Hand to Big Toe pose -- Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana
I haven't done yoga since I left for Sedona three weeks ago because I only like to do it in class. But my daughter-in-law, Rachel, is a yoga teacher, and she's visiting us this week. So I asked her to do some yoga poses on our hikes -- that way I haven't totally lost the yoga connection! 

Crow pose, or Bakasana

I can sorta do the top pose, but the next three require way more arm and core strength than I have. She's young and I'm not, or at least that's my excuse.

Eight Angle pose, or Astavakrasana

Flying Splits pose, or Eka Pada Koundinyasana

This next one, Tree pose, is more my style.

Tree pose, or Vrksasana

And what fuels this vegan yogi? Here's her breakfast: avocado and almond butter toast with a banana and strawberries. Yooooom.

Have a healthy day

Wow... that's way above my job description, but I really admire people who have that ability - balance + strength. Her breakfast looks scrumptious!
