stuck in downward dog and high heels
I have never been able to wear high heels. Ever. Not even the little tiny ones that aren’t far off the ground. Suddenly, a few months ago I mastered a pair of massive heels — at least three inches and relatively skinny. And I was quite proud of myself.
I wore these heels on Tuesday to meetings downtown and suddenly realized that I could walk in them. All over the place. Not having much else to do, I gave this some thought and came to the conclusion that I must be able to wear heels now thanks to my yoga classes. My legs are definitely stronger and I have way more balance than before — perhaps yoga has more benefits than just relaxation, restoration, and health.
The irony of having this thought is that I also attended a book launch on this eye opening day for a new book called Stuck in Downward Dog. The launch was so much fun — complete with free cosmetic samples (loads of stuff that I would never think to buy — or could afford to buy — and now I get to try it all out). I think the book will be a fantastic read and I can’t wait to get into it.
