Happy Friday, yogis!
Speaking of happy... is it just me, or is happy baby pose the funniest part of yoga class?

Yesterday I taught a little workshop at my old dorm from Northwestern, and I looked around the room and saw all the butts in the air, and I just couldn't help cracking up.
"Grab the outsides of your feet," I said, laughing to myself. "Pull your knees down, and just pretend you're like a baby about to stick one foot in your mouth."
I got a few chuckles out of this, and even more when I mentioned a line from a teacher I heard a long time ago:
"We're doing happy baby pose. AKA having a baby pose."

Yoga is great for connecting with your inner child. Go ahead and laugh in the middle of class. It's good for your soul.
And you never know: it may just help your hips open a little more, too.
