This Challenge Will Give You a Better Butt in Just 30 Days

Words That Move You...Yoga and Rock Climbing

The summer heat is toning down, which makes outdoor activities so much more pleasant. I'm a firm believer in doing a wide range of activities with your body. It is important to challenge your muscles in different ways, but different disciplines complement each other as well.

"Yoga is a system, scientifically proven to boost your climbing ability significantly. Why do you think you always see that Guru figure sitting on the top of the mountain? You think he/she got there by enlightenment?"

That pose is called Firefly, and seriously - it looks much harder than it actually is. All her weight is in her hands and towards her hips, so if she did fall, she'd most likely just plop down on her bottom. Plus I bet there is solid ground right below her that got cut out of the picture, so she wouldn't just fall into nothingless.

For those of us who are not very graceful to begin with, that looks unreasonably dangerous. I can see pairing yoga with hiking (seriously, hiking out to a beautiful place and doing some yoga sounds like it would be a blast). But not rock climbing- the potential for disaster is too high.

That is some crazy shit. I can picture homegirl falling off the rock and getting her head split open...I didn't know there were people who do yoga on rocks.
