When we think about flexibility in yoga, we tend to think about the physical aspects. Are our hips open enough so that we can we take our knee to the side in tree pose? Do we have enough flexibility in our hamstrings to touch our toes in a forward bend? This physical side of the benefits of yoga is magnificent, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the spiritual, mental and emotional benefits of flexibility that yoga has brought to my life.

It seems we had more snow on Vashon back in the 1950’s, that it was deeper and meant more days home from school. We skated on Fisher pond when there was nobody to tell you where there were places of thin ice. Tripping on the brush was another trick of mine.

One time, Mrs. Van House shook Rob K. so hard that she ripped his shirt.  “My dad is going to sue you,” Rob said.  Mrs. Van House was our 2nd grade teacher at Vashon Grade School and as mean as she could be.

When you run out of  almond milk  and have to go purchase more put on a loose fitting dress and a mismatched  sweater, preferable hand knit. Finish  your outfit off with a pair of rubber boots.
