    I also advise drugging your young children so that they sleep peacefully next to your well placed yoga mat (TM)… I mean you are not a yoga superstar if you are not also a perfect mOM!

    I went on a binge of trying be a yoga instagram star (@drlibertybell). I was in Santa Fe, so I blame it on the altitude. Despite my best efforts to pose and breathe around delightful dessert backdrops, I never seemed to make it big time. I did manage to throw my back out when I tried to do bridge over a fountain without warming up. I got three “likes” and a soggy spandex butt out of the deal. Thanks for the tips! Maybe I’ll try again once I draw my abs on.

    Lys Riley makes me chuckle. I find her soothingly hilarious and a grand distraction when I don’t want to work on Sunday because I got nothing done all week. Thanks for introducing me to this You Tube Superstar…

    Funny video! And regarding your “core” – which looks great to me by the way- in the belly dance world, we consider that shape outrageously gorgeous.
