Meet Adam

Meet Adam. He can do all the things I am training and practicing to do - like the splits - as you can see above. He is my own personal reminder of my goal and intentions for yoga practice each week.

I find that the more I go to yoga, the more I discover. New words, new poses, new thoughts. Adam has been a great way to document some of this.

A few weeks ago in a Jivamukti class, I tried out side crow for the first time. I wasn't too bad...on one side.

And then I tried out Rocket Yoga; where I attempted this pose! I don't even know the name of it! So Adam will stay in this pose, next to my bed, until I work it out!

do you know this pose?!

And, yup. Before you ask, yoga is for guys too ;) 

As lives are getting more hectic and stress takes a physical hold on our bodies more and more people are turning to yoga (including myself) for both the physical and mental benefits. I practice yoga for a number of reasons including to have some 'me' time, get flexible, push my limits and to increase my strength.

As I'm getting more and more into yoga I thought using Adam would be a great way to document some of what I am learning through my practices. He's pretty flexible with multidirectional hinges located at the points of our major human joints i.e hips, elbows, knees, ankles etc. He also never tires so can hold any pose for as long as I need him to!

I used to be a keen artist in my younger days too :D ...maybe I will rekindle that and get drawing which Adam would make a good muse for! For the fashion bloggers amongst us, he'd be great to help you create some outfit / design inspiration!

Here are some more snaps I have taken of poses I have been practicing in the last few weeks:

wheel pose

plank pose

arm balance

I challenge you to give them a go! 

And you can pick up your own Adam the Doodles Man too :)
