CHAPTER 3 ~ CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS
Translating yoga into surfing
We went to Maui for a week during the Holiday Break. The girls wanted to try surfing, so we signed up for lessons. I was nervous until I realized I'd be able to use my yoga training to help me learn the surfing moves.
That's me doing a Warrior 1 pose. Johnny, our surfing teacher, is on the right.
My first couple of times "catching a wave" all I could do was get myself from a plank position to kneeling. But it was still a fantastic ride to shore.
Here I managed to plant my front foot forward, almost to a yoga lunge position. Well, okay, not exactly to a lunge, but close enough.

I quit while I was ahead and enjoyed watching the girls finish their lesson.
During the whole time I was out there, I never got my hair wet - a true accomplishment, or so I'm told by real surfers.
High fives and Shakas at the end. Now I'm a Surfer Girl!
