L and R watch an interview of Richard Freeman on my laptop. They are engrossed.
L sings “nummmm” and R “Ohhhh” after Richard’s Om.
L points at a photo of David Swenson and says “papa”. This happens often.
M reads a story to L after a run, in Pigeon pose.
R trys to feed M rice and spinach porridge while he is back bending. I had to suddenly be the willing mouth.
R feeds M watermelon while he is lifting in Utpluthih (palms pressing into the mat, body lifted off the floor, legs in lotus.)
R tightly hugs my hips in Shoulder stand. Just the stimulation needed to straighten up and reach through my feet.
M runs circles around me while I am in a headstand. L and R enjoy leaning into me and pulling my hands apart in the posture.
R hugs my standing leg in Uthita hasta padangusthasana, a balancing posture where you hold the big toe of one foot and extend that leg out in front for five breaths, and then to the side for another five.
Perfect gentle light-weight adjustments.
The assistants go wild when I am in Karnapidasana (Ear pressure posture). In the photo on the left M is about to enter the pose by bending his knees and placing them next to his ears. It becomes even more of a locked posture when L and R step on my legs and refuse to move. They are pulling my hair and pinching my nose. I can’t move my legs or my arms without hurting them. I call for help!
Savasana with one of them laying on me. (Both do it.)
Yoga in Leila’s language is Diga. Yoga in Rahul’s language is Goga.
Butt naked R is in down dog on Maher’s mat. M is in pigeon next to him. ”
What are you doing?!” I ask Rahul. “Yoga,” he replies seriously.
