via Yoga Journal's [livejournal.com profile] yogabuzz,



I am totally amused that that photo's caption is "Yoga granny: Bette Calman, 83, shows off the agonising peacock pose." (emphasis is mine.) It's not that agonizing. I'm not saying I can do it as well as she can yet, but balances aren't that agonizing, really.

Impressive! I feel shamed ;)

Seriously, though, you need some fierce upper body strength for a pose like that...

And I can barely do it for a second, by which I mean to say I can't do it at all. yet. lol. but it's still not "agonizing." You just either can or can't do it. It seems to me that the agony was all in the caption-writer's mind, and not at all in the pose or the person doing the pose. If anything, she makes it look easy.

Awesome. I bet she's not on as many meds as big pharma would like. ;)
