When I did my beach yoga class this week, I used a beach towel to stand on. As I moved through the practice, I noticed that the sand formed under my feet, making it a little tricky to find balance in some poses. When I went into Downward Dog, the sand that had collected under my feet made an excellent cushion, and because of it I was able to get my feet all the way down to the earth. I can never get my feet down to the earth in Downward Dog! Thank you sand!
