The (Dis)contents of My Body

Don’t be afraid, I’m not going to talk about my bowels. At least, not specifically and not in graphic detail. However, I had the chance for the first time to […]

I’m Hot: Here’s Proof

Today, I woke up hot. Not sexy hot (because I’m always that — wishful positive thinking), but hot hot. If you’ve been so unfortunate and bored as to follow my complaints […]

Yoga Bragging Rights

You might think that the yoga mindset precludes bragging. Not for me. I won’t let any zen thought occlude my better judgement. I will abstain from arguing that you should […]

Caturday Yoga

My cat is a huge fan of yoga. Particularly the yoga mat.

What I Hated the Least Today 261/365: MS Paint and the Practice of Ensō

Recently I noticed a huge discussion sparkled about MS Paint, which was announced to be retired but the decision was promptly withdrawn because people are sentimental about it and not […]

Socksies and no shoesies

What I Hated the Least Today 199/365: Socksies

I know, I’m weird with my diminutives. I have socksies, shoesies, panties and whatnotsies. On my defence, it’s perfectly normal in my mother tongue to diminutivise what you hate the […]

I probably can't sit either

What I Hated the Least Today 196/365: Stand

I can’t stand. No, seriously, I can’t stand properly. I suspect all of my body alignment is all messed up. I wouldn’t have noticed, had I not started to practise […]

I’m scared of people who take a perfectly normal thing, like eating or exercising, and turn it into a whole lifestyle, so making it somewhat abnormal. The trouble is that […]

What I Hated the Least Today 125/365: Yoga Block What Again?

My yesterday’s post about a yoga block received a bunch of great and greatly amusing comments, which prompted me to revisit the topic for a follow-up with clarifications and answers […]

What I Hated the Least Today 124/365: Yoga Block

I got me a yoga block as I grew tired of using Shakespeare’s collected work in lieu of a block (true story). Now the bard (from the most part unread) […]

What I Hated the Least Today 120/365: 365 Photos

I completed the second round of my 365 Photo Project. It went so smoothly that I hardly noticed. Except one day when I forgot to take a photo because I was […]

What I Hated the Least Today 100/365: Yoga Check

I’ve been practising yoga at home half-heartedly for a year and vigorously for the last three months. I devised a strictly anti-zen branch of yoga, which has the same postures […]

What I Hated the Least Today 40/365: Muscles

I have abs. They can be neither seen nor felt, but now I know I have them, hiding in the jelly of my belly. I know because I pulled a […]
