My Yoga classes and I will, on occasion, rename Yoga poses.
Not because the original names are wrong, but because sometimes they’re dull or just not the right fit for us. Sometimes we come up with something better.
Like Giraffe-asana. Which is standing wide-legged fold. It just feels so much better when you imagine yourself stepping wide to allow your long, long graceful giraffe neck to reach down and down and down in order to take a cool sip of water.
Really. It’s a totally better pose when you channel your inner giraffe.
You can see Giraffe-asana here … if you watch this through … done to perfection.
