The "Do They Know You At All?"

That's what Baby Girl said to me last night as I flipped through a yoga catalog that was mailed to me.

By "they" she meant the yoga company.

And by "know you" she meant because I'm a sloth. She knows me well.

The catalog was something, let me tell you. The clothes were great (I'd lounge around in them in a hot second), but the poses those women were in. Ow, ow, and more ows. Look at this. Just look at it.

Doesn't it hurt to look at it? It hurts me. Thankfully, there were other poses in the catalog. Trendily-dressed, yoga-type women standing next to bicycles... Poses like that give me hope. I could totally do that! The pose above? No way on earth. But let me tell you, I'm mightily impressed with anyone who can even come close.

For now, I'm keeping the catalog. The company might not know what I sloth I am, but even sloths like to look cute when they sloth around...


  1. Hahahaa! YES!! I have done yoga for a long time, but not in the last two years. It's crazy and I can't do the upside poses b/c I get vertigo. . .I'm so old!!
    Anyways, I do get those magazines b/c I'm working on a new Yoga cozy mystery and that's research;)

  2. I'm with you on this one! One of my best girlfriends is a yoga instructor. She tries to convince me that participants (or yogites, as I call them), can get to that level.

    I have to admit, I find it hard to believe. Especially since I'm one of the yogites and couldn't do that pose on the fittest day of my life! :)

  3. Tonya, I get vertigo, too. More reason not to try crazy poses like that!

    Tracy, love the term "yogites." LOL. I cannot believe just anyone can do that pose! Incredible.

  4. I feel the same way when a certain lingerie company sends me a catalog in the mail. I am so not a sexy lingerie person thank you very much!

  5. LOL, Breaunna. Some of them are eye-opening, to say the least. ;)

  6. I have visions of attempting to do that pose and breaking my neck in the process. I think I'll stick to my "sloth-ness."

  7. I love yoga but can't do a lot of the crazy poses. Definitely relaxes you and puts you in good head space.

    I'm with you on the yoga outfits. Anything you can lounge in and be at one with yourself is good stuff.

  8. Linda, me too! LOL.

    Lisa, those outfits are really nice. A bit pricey, though. :/

  9. Yoga? I think I am at the wrong blog. Ha, never in a million years - looking at that pose. Wow!

  10. At least you know their clothes keep you covered in extreme situations which I am sure is the point of the pictures of women doing crazy stuff like that.

    Plus I like that they use real athletes, you know? I'd rather be shamed by a woman capable of doing those advanced poses because I know she's worked for something rather than just a model who starved herself and is incapable of holding a carrot stick aloft for 60 seconds without needing to rest.
