‘How,’ asked my boyfriend one night, as he watched me
rolling around on the floor doing yoga, ‘do you get all that definition from doing just THAT?’
He was referring to the fact that I have muscles. Lots of them. After more than a decade of yoga practice, I’d say I have a yoga body. Not maybe the hot pants-wearing type, but certainly a body that I feel really comfortable in.
And he’s right. I don’t seem to do very much to get it.
I roll around on the floor a fair amount.
But while I am there, I do core work.
And before that, I lunge and squat and do plank pose.
And I do this?
Every single day, without fail. Trust me, nobody wants me to miss a session…
That is how you get a yoga body from doing very little. Because a little bit every day is actually quite a lot, cumulatively speaking.
