Occupational hazard

Today in yoga class, our instructor concentrated for a while on our feet. "Focus on your soles," she said, and "Pay attention to your soles." But what did I hear? I spent the next hour lost in contemplation of souls. That's all right, but the class is meant to take participants away from the cares of their everyday work.

I'm happy to report, though, that for the second week now, I was able to sustain a shoulder stand position for several minutes. (For non-yogis, this means supporting the weight of your body by rolling onto your back and slowly extending legs up in the air until only your shoulders and head remain on the mat. In this position, your soles lift toward the sky, if your class meets outdoors.)
