The Whimsy Yogi !!

My darling husband would soon stop going out on outings with me, mostly because I get down and dirty, to do some Yoga Poses. He would be armed with his camera equipments, immersed in the beauty of the surroundings, trying to picturize the frame that he is going to shoot and I, with a sly smile, would interlude his trance and ask him to take my pictures instead.

Why can't you be normal - he would often ask, while clicking pictures with a classic bored look.

Well what's life without being whimsy!!

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies - Shawshank Redemption.

Last week we drove to the wine country - Hunter Valley. Even though it wasn't the right season, the views were just as gorgeous and peaceful. Sprawling fields, hopping Kangaroos, tall trees, clear blue skies and the contrasting dried out vineyards - just the right amount of freshness one needs during the weekend.

But that doesn't mean I can't stretch and relieve my spinal cord from all the stress that accumulates over the week. Listening to Ellie Goulding's Love me like you do in the hotel room, I warmed up my body with a 15 min Yoga Flow. 

A simple stretch that included lot of breathing, downward facing dog, cat, cow, planks, upward facing dog, wild thing, headstand and spinal twists.

Till a year ago, I could only admire all the Yoga travel photos I found on Google, and hoped - with all my heart - I hoped that maybe someday, I too would be strong enough to have a collection of such memories.

Indeed, Hope is a good things - it kept me on track and didn't let my dream die.

And now, I can only hope that my dear husband gets used to the idea of clicking pictures of his whimsical wife. See how slowly he is pushing me out of the frame :P


  1. I admire the dedication with which you do yoga and blog about it too! And why is your husband complaining? You are giving him more shutter practice, after all :D

  2. You woman are giving me such a complex that I want to run and hide somewhere.

    You look so beautiful already and in such beautiful locations you just add to the entire feel of the place. Your husband should feel lucky. Ask him not to complain :P

  3. With backward bends , the spinal cord stress gets released, isn't? Loved the beautiful locales.

  4. Tell him we love the pictures he clicks with you as the subject. I especially loved that last one... even though he did try his best to push you out of the frame there! :P

  5. Just wonderful - shows what dedication (only a year ago?) can do! Thank you!

  6. How great that you have your own personal photographer! ☺ Hope springs eternal, as they say. Cheers!

  7. Your lucky to have your husband as your own personal photographer Raj! :) And I love the idea of you being a whimsical yogi, including doing yoga in jeans and everyday wear out in nature. Love the first pose in particular at top! <3

  8. Hahaha... I look at the beautiful pictures in hues of green and blue and there you are! In red, twisted and turned in Yoga poses... I guess you both are lucky, your husband has you as a subject to photograph, and you have him to shoot amazing photographs of yourself!!!! Hope--- it gives an optimism in life... A way to live peacefully :)

  9. That is so utterly cute!! So what are you doing this International Yoga Day? Yoga specials coming up?
