Willet Yoga

A friend told me recently about the new yoga instructor they had hired at Red River creek, that he was giving lessons out by the old bridge.

So I decided to check it out.

When I first arrived at the bridge, I couldn’t find him anywhere.


And then, I spotted him!

Perched on what was left of the railing.


He looked straight at me, told me he’d seen me around the creek with my camera.

He told me I looked a little stressed the other day when he’d seen me photographing.

And he wondered if I’d like to try a pose that might help.


I told him, Sure, I was game, but only if he had the time.

And then I watched as he slowly lifted his right leg of the rail, stretching it back and back as he pointed hit toes…


And then, breathing more deeply, he lifted it even higher.

And a little higher, holding it there for the longest time!


I could feel the tightness in my neck releasing, even as I watched him.

When he was finished, he lifted up his wings for a mighty good stretch, head to tail feathers,  gave me a little wink.


And then —


He was gone!

Yet even our brief encounter had done me wonders.

One could only imagine what a few more sessions with such a Master could do…   ❤
