Dangers Of A Snow Day
by Rachel Creager Ireland
It started so innocently, with the kids off school because of heavy snow. It went like this:
Me: I’m going to do some yoga.
Rowan (age 9): I want to do it with you! Can we do sunflower . . . something . . .
Me: Sun salutation. Yes. Start with your feet together . . .
[A while later]
Rowan: Oh, that was hard!
Me: Really? That was the easy version. I used to do the Power Yoga version, it’s a lot harder.
Rowan: Show me!
Me: Um, okay.
[The next day]
Rowan’s back in school today. Normal life returns, but with my muscles reminding me just how many of them get a work out from Power Yoga sun salutation. But oh man what was I thinking?????
