Frazzled? Fold forward.

If you've been following this blog, you'll know that my recent yoga practice has primarily consisted of one-pose wonders...relocating to another country, even if only temporarily, can throw a wrench in your yoga practice/fitness endeavors. But I was inspired by a recent post on elephant journal to do my best to accept what is. In other words, take what I can get. Today was a special treat: my daughter occupied herself quietly while I practiced the standing and finishing postures in the Ashtanga series, and she even came and massaged me while I was in savasana. Bliss! Tomorrow, we move into our new, much more spacious flat, and Sunday - gasp - I may even be able to attend my first yoga class in London.

IMHO, some of the best one-pose wonders are super simple. Not much to 'em, and you can easily do them almost anywhere. It doesn't get much simpler than this one: folding forward, with a restorative twist - balance your bum on a wall. And stay there for awhile.

The How-to:
If you're overloaded at work, short on sleep, or even in the middle of a holiday fĂȘte, you can take a breather with this pose and soothe your frazzled nerves. Happy Holi-daze.
