a #yogadork tale

are you a #yogadork?

My #yogadork tank came, just in time for the second workshop with Simon Park @flowyogaslc yesterday. I love it – it’s long, almost like a minidress.

Simon started us with some tai chi energy cultivation. Less than five minutes into class, in the middle of a sentence, he stopped and said, “I love your shirt! How many of you are yogadorks?” Lots of hands went up.

Just a suggestion though: I think they run a little big. After hours of intense asana, including working toward jumping into handstand, and gracefully jumping back into chaturanga from handstand (ha!) we were all drenched. The last half hour or so we paired up for some assisted stretching, a la Thai yoga. Deepening baddha konasana by grounding our partners’ thighs, practically flying in ardha chandrasana (with a hand clasping a foot behind our backs, and our partners supporting us in a beautiful backbendy opening there), and then lifting from bakasana to handstand. The combination of a loose shirt getting even bigger through sweat ended in a bit of, uh, flashing Simon and my partner. It’s all in the yogadork family, I guess.

So, try your shirt maybe one size smaller than you think. 🙂
