I'm going to start detailing the yoga sequences I do in my home practice sessions and posting them on Sunday nights for my Intentional Movement reports. In case you're interested in following along at home, but don't have a solid background in yoga, please check out this How to Avoid Injury in Yoga article. I've practiced yoga for about fifteen years, and didn't feel comfortable practicing on my own without instruction until maybe five years ago. If you're new to yoga and you can attend a class, please do. I recommend Iyengar yoga above all other styles, mostly because it takes into account different body shapes and abilities. Even the most fit-looking person can have structural differences that doesn't allow them to move into poses as they're pictured. Iyengar uses props--blankets, blocks, straps, bolsters--to help support the body in a pose if needed. Heck, after fifteen years, I still sometimes use props in the most basic poses, like a block in Trikonasana or a strap in Paschimottanasana. I also like Iyengar because it emphasizes alignment and form. Psychologically and logically, that makes sense to me. Perform the pose in a manner that best works with your own particular abilities, structure, and body mechanics, instead of pushing your body into an idealized position. I am adamantly opposed to Bikram yoga for a variety of reasons. If you love it, great, but I'll never recommend it to anyone.

Does anybody want a charming Hello Kitty teapot, in the shape of Kitty holding a watering can? It's cute, but not terribly functional. It was a gift from someone a long time ago and I want it to go to a good home.

I'm trying to get a custom temporary tattoo made for my Moran cosplay and I've been going back and forth with this Etsy seller for (I am not shitting you) nearly a week to figure out the specifications she needs for the image. Finally, I sent her this yesterday:

Can you tell me the dpi, size, and image format you need to print the image as a 5" temp tattoo? So, like, 300dpi, 5" at widest point, in JPG? I think the best thing would be for you to give me specific numbers.

and she responded:

I'm not sure about what to say when it comes to dpi.That is dot per inch, and I haven't had to reference that. The things that work are usually .jpg or .png. The dimensions (px) (width & height) of the image in size 1000 x 1000 or more should be fine.

I...don't even know how to respond that that? Except maybe try to find a different seller who can do that size of tattoo. All the other people I found on my first search who do custom temp tattoos don't do them larger than 2"x2" and some don't even do color. UGH.

Today's Tumblr collection is Tuesday, February 24: Wonder Woman.
