Don’t say I never give you new features. First there was bereavement and autism. Then came parenting. Then virtual trips to Switzerland and world exercise bike tours. Then helpful baking tips. Poking fun at the government came next. Then muppet guides.

I hear you. You want more. OK

Brace yourself people. Don your comfy shirts and brightly coloured tight leggings. It’s time for your first Yoga Guide. Today I’m going to start with transitioning into the Warrior Pose. To add to the difficulty (as I am an elite athlete) I will be doing it dressed up as a Star Wars Clone Trooper.

Find a comfortable position. That is difficult dressed up in tight plastic battle gear, so I will just fall to the ground in a heap.

Now transition into a lotus pose or as close as you can comfortably manage.

Now with the grace of a charging Bison, extend you legs while keeping your head in line with your heart which is in line with your buttocks. Brace your thighs as you transition into the warrior pose.

If you are new to yoga or are a lego figure then you will probably find that the use of support blocks will help with stability.

Now hold. Your body, legs and joints will be screaming for mercy. Remember it’s good for you. Count to 10.

Now release the hold. See how good that feels.

Look at the pure delight on my face as I realise just how good my body now feels.

So hopefully you found that most useful. Remember I am an expert so don’t expect to be as good as me straight away. Stick with it and over many months you might end up not feeling so inferior to me.

Please let me know if you would like any other yoga or fitness activity explained to you.

NAMASTE my friends.

  1. I genuinely think the only thing holding me back is that I don’t have a block to stand on, like you have in the fifth picture. Great to see a picture of you on your blog – you look really familiar somehow.

  2. That was so funny! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I started giggling as soon as I saw the lego guy. Good job Superdad and thanks for the laughs. You get a gold star for that one. As you English sorts like to say… that was brilliant.

  3. Very good Gary. I have always worked out my own routine. Because I was getting leg cramps, I started doing extra leg stretches recently. A few days ago I discovered that after 13 years I could actually get my right leg into my jeans without manually moving it. I was so astonished and wondered why professionals were not able to offer anything that would help. (I sustained nerve damage after a spinal fusion.) Now if I can just manage to stand on 2 feet without falling down….kidding, I’m usually fairly stable. Ha.

  4. You did not make me smile, you made me burst… lol! Already when you wrote about the lotus seat, I thought, my gosh, no that exercise is not meant for my 50-year-old joints… lol

    My body often feels that “relaxed” and I don’t even do yoga. Imagine how much MORE relaxed I’d be if I startedπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
