I am the armpit bully

I entered the hot room and recognized a girl in the second row from a big conversation we had about 1 month ago. She caught my eye so I smiled.

It was a little awkward.

THEN she made a big gesture and mouthed the word 'armpit!!?'. I gestured back 'huh?'.

She pointed to her under arms and apparently thought that I was laughing at them. HOW HORRIBLE!!! I was not, I didn't even notice. I don't really look at peoples underarms unless there is a serious reason too. I made a grandiose gesture like, 'no no don't worry'. She left during Half Moon (Ardha Chandrasana). Left the room never to return.

I quickly got over it but I hope she doesn't think I am a bully. Just call me 'armpit bully kirsten.' Yup- that is how I roll.
The next time I see her I will have to clear it up.. what shall I say?

'Hey I don't know your name but I wasn't laughing at your armpits... that is what you were pointing at right?'

Oh man. Good class otherwise. Excellent class. I had Kirsten one of my most favorite instructors. She rocks. I was so strong and my body felt capable and supple. Supple is a weird word. I am still unsure in Camel (ustrasana) and keep my (cute) butt cheeks super clenched for fear of hinging too much on my vertebrate and not lifing through the chest.


Favorite Posture: Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose (Dandayamana-Bibhaktapada-Janushirasana) because I was able to reach the full expression of the posture and hold it. It felt beautiful.
Least Favorite Posture: Floor Bow (Dhanurasana) because it hurts my old lady arthritis and I am apprehensive about popping my back.. like yesterday's post.

Supple is a funny word! Its a boob word in my opinion. ;)
Ooh! Question... Do you take glucosamine or fish oil or anything for your joints? I've been taking both for a few weeks now and my knees no longer creak.
