Yoga Anytime, Anywhere: Watching Treme

Yoga Anywhere, Anytime: Agnistambhasana Fire Log PoseIllustration by Yael Abramowitz

The best way to enjoy David Simon’s Treme is to get off the couch and do some hip openers. Stretch your hips and groins in Agnistambhasana and let go of your Sunday night stress (my yoga teacher always says “they aren’t child bearing hips they are stress bearing hips). Feel tension building from watching the recreated tough times in post-Katrina New Orleans? Then go deeper into the pose by folding forward on the exhale. Don’t round your back as you place the popcorn bowl in front of your stacked shins and remember to press through your heels and spread your toes. When you are done with both sides you’ll be ready to swing to that New Orleans music.

Yoga Anywhere, Anytime: Peeing in Public Restrooms

Instead of popping a squat over the nasty public restroom bowl, go into Chair Pose. Keep your tushy pristine from pee on the seat and strengthen your ankles, thighs, calves and spine while emptying your bladder in Utkatasana. For shy pee-ers, turning public potty time into a mini yoga practice will allow them to relax and feel balanced so they can let the flow go.

Don’t forget to flush — if it’s gross come into Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana I (Extended Hand to Big Toe Pose) and hit the toilet lever with your foot as you lower it to the floor with an exhale.

If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat.

Yoga Anywhere, Anytime: Getting Arrested

Something to ponder if you’re headed to the clink . . .

The most profound benefit of yoga and meditation for me has been a natural relaxing into my life. Obstacles are not so scary. I am more fluid, more curious, and at the same time more patient. I have more options for happiness because I don’t require specific conditions. It is a relief to discover that I can be happy even if the world doesn’t revolve around me or my agenda. – Cyndi Lee, founder OM Yoga Center
