Bad at Padmasana (lotus position)
I'm bad at lotus. So freakin' bad that I don't do it or teach it anymore. Ever.
Rather than crappily doing the pose for you and hurting myself (again), I'm just gonna give some love to my left knee. To my left medial meniscus, to be exact. It really hates lotus. And since angry knees are what got me into yoga in the first place - being nice to them makes sense. At least, it makes sense now after re-injuring them a few times. Have I mentioned I'm a slow learner?
To quote Leslie Kaminoff (my favorite source for yoga/anatomy information):
"The people who are flexible enough to do lotus don't really need to and those that are too stiff shouldn't risk it."
Does choosing to not sit in lotus lower my chances of obtaining enlightenment? Possibly. but my meniscus and I are willing to risk it.
Bonus material: You can also see my lucky right bunion in this photo! Lucky you.
