Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Well, sad to say, the Summer Olympics are officially over.  I didn’t catch all of the closing ceremonies last night but from what I’ve read, there were mixed reviews.  I personally turned off the tv when Russell Brand came out atop a psychedelic school bus singing a Beatles’ song surrounded by a few swinging-60’s glad dancers.  No thanks, too Superbowl half-time show for me.

I instead switched on my PM Yoga dvd and struggled to follow the instructor, Mr. Yee, for 20 mins of RELAXATION poses designed to “gently reduce strain and eliminate the stresses of the day”, blah, blah, blah. 

I found it hard to concentrate on my breathing while simultaneously holding a screamingly painful stretching pose and trying to remove the visual of a pasty-hairy faced, Jesus impersonator, Russell Brand gyrating to the Beatles surrounded by mini-skirted groupies. 

But by the end of the workout I felt better and much more relaxed.
