I recently started taking yoga lessons since I read it is one of the most ancient forms of exercise, but a great way to stay fit and relax!
I’ve been going crazy with all the junk food and wine recently and I needed to get in shape for the upcoming Miss Virtual World competition. Since I’ll be competing with some of the most beautiful women in the virtual world, it is very stressful and a lot of hard work. So I think yoga will help me shed all those extra pounds and relax my mind as well!
I found a beautiful, serene spot near a pond with a little waterfall at Maran’s Island and decided to head there at dawn for a nice peaceful session of Yoga! It was so peaceful with only the sound of the water flowing, the trees swaying in the breeze and the birds chirping.
Some of the ‘asanas’ or yoga exercises are real tongue twisters! The one in the title pic is the Veerabhadrasana or Bow and arrow asana.
I started off with the easy ones….
…before progressing to the more challenging asanas
Some rather acrobatic ones like th ‘scorpion’
…and even some downright gravity defying ones!
This one is ‘Hanumanasana’ named after a Hindu god. I decided to challenge myself as you can see in the photo! It took loads of lower body strength..lol just to avoid falling into the water. At the end of it I actually did fall in..but enjoyed cooling off with that dip! lol
Being able to pull off all those difficult Asanas, I think I’m quite fit and ready to take on the competition!
