While digging out a site for a new garden bed, I was playing around with balances on my shovel. I’m fairly light weight. So when I dig the shovel into the dirt I have to put my whole body into it to really make a dent. When I do that, one foot first then the other, I’m essentially balancing my whole body weight on the rim of the shovel.
I dance with it sometimes, swaying here and there. It’s a laugh if you were to see me.
So anyway, my daughter came out with the cell phone and grabbed a couple of shots of my shovel yoga.
Tree pose was not super difficult, putting my weight slightly towards one side of the body rather than directly in the center. But Dancer, well that was another story and will definitely need more practice. Couldn’t quite balance enough to take the leg any higher.
It was fun though.
