I have a practice twin

Not being exactly a *joiner*, I never thought I would be saying that I now have a practice twin. We are to arrive at the same time and practice near each other and stay on track together, and when we get to Bhekasana and Supta Vajrasan, we are to assist each other, and after Supta Vajrasana, the next time we practice together as twins, we shall get more asana…I am guessing up to and/or including Eka Pada Sirsasana.

This will likely not be until a week from Monday to come. Until then, it’s Kap-o-Mania.

Oh, here’s the thang. If I told you to imagine my practice twin, would you think of a petite ashtangini with a propensity toward foward bends? Well, you would be right about the propensity toward forward bends.

Not so much the petite ashtangini.

My practice twin is a tall strapping man, about six feet and change, about 200 pounds of pure muscle, with a lovely stand-up from Urdhva Dhanurasana and a slightly better Kapotasana than mine.

I find this ironic.

    What is it that seems ironic?

    It sounds like a good movie concept. The Yoga Twins. Think Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwartzenegger in Twins.

    YES!!! That movie was ironic. The pairing of two who would be unlikely to be paired = irony!

    But it is so great to have a practice partner! You can keep each other motivated and in check. So what he is a big buff man? It makes things more interesting in my book! 😉

    Yes, he big, he buff. He he-man!

    He’s very nice too. And married with kids. And strong as ox. Except for the fact that he has a better Kapotasana than me, we truly are a compatible practice twin pair.
