Day 11: Reclining Straddle. This was the first time in 96 days that I didn’t post a yoga pic on Instagram. Mainly, because my phone had a very unfortunate dip in the washing machine. I ended up digging out my old phone to use, but with the news of Robin Williams’ death, it didn’t seem like an appropriate time to post a yoga pic. I took two days off from posting, and then ended up catching up. I did still practice every day though, so I’m still going strong with 119 days straight at the time of writing this post.

Day 1 was Pigeon. This is one of my favorite poses to just hang out in.

I also did Mermaid, since it’s a way to deepen the pose.
