Even if you can’t balance on one leg (full tree pose) you can still get the benefits of practicing balance by transferring weight to and from each leg. If you are having trouble balancing, try stepping off the mat and onto a bare floor.

Yoga with babies/toddlers moves a bit faster than yoga with adults!

    Hi spy,
    I have a really fast connection, so judging by the length of time it took to load after clicking on one of your photos, I’d suggest you drastically reduce the pixel count before uploading. IrfanView has a very easy way to do this. It’s what I use, and you can do them in bulk too if you want, though I usually don’t. WordPress gives you the option of reducing the size after uploading, but last time I looked the results turned out poor, so never tried it that way again. Happy blogging!

      Thanks for reaching out and the tip about Irfanview! Yes I am glad I caught this issue now, “only” 456 photos in! According to my calculations if I resize every picture to about 70kb I have room for 43,000 pictures. Compared to only 1000 pictures if I leave them in their current size! When uploading pictures (to other sites/email/etc) in the past, I always reduced them first but in wordpress they were uploading so fast I guess I thought it didn’t matter so much. I never even checked to see how much space you actually got for free on wordpress until today! I am not opposed to buying more space down the road but definitely sticking to ~70kb per pic from now on. Now off to go resize 456 pics! (the bulk resize option with Irfanview is going to help immensely with that: my photo editing software doesn’t do that). Thanks again!
