Happy Hump-asana Day: Sukhasana / Easy Seated Pose

Happy Hump-asana Day, friends!

Yesterday was sheer madness: I taught at 7am, practiced at 9:30am, worked, then taught again at 6:30pm. WHEW! Today I’m practically running out the door again but couldn’t exit without leaving you with a Hump-asana [woot!].

Then, Scroll back up and read SY’s interview. It’s great. Srsly. Past that, have a beautiful, yoga-filled day and breathe!

P.S. My mantra today is BREATHE. What’s yours?

Happy Hump-asana Day, fellow yogis! Get your minds out of the gutter – Hump-asana Day, traditionally known as Wednesday or “Hump Day” in lamens/working-folk tongue, is a mid-week yogi treat. Hump-asana Day features a snippet of a pose worth spending some time exploring. And since they’re ALL worth exploring, we’ll never run out of poses for Hump-asana Day – rejoice!
