* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


I am sitting in the living room this morning and what I keep on the shelf in here is mainly photo albums but closer than those is The Sivananda Companion to Yoga, a great book for learning new poses if you can't get to a class. But it also has other great information about keeping the body healthy.

Page 56 in this book is a description of the Half Spinal Twist.

Keep your spine erect and your shoulders level in the position and breathe steadily, twisting a little more each time you exhale.

Your book sounds like an awful lot of work. I can never follow written descriptions of things I am supposed to do with my body.

My Friday 56 is here.

I have never tried Yoga before, perhaps I should?

My Friday 56th post is from a book called Taming the Forest King.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I can't do yoga....but that spine twist sounds like it would feel awfully good!

Have a great weekend!

Very nice! I have just started practicing yoga and really enjoy it.

Yoga is hard!
I agree with Kathy Martin about following written instructions for the body - I have trouble remembering to do everything at the same time and the minute I look away from the book I've forgotten it all.

My Friday 56 has to do with nakedness!

Sounds interesting. I just tried it. Mine is from Jane Eyre and I think it is one of the longest sentences I have ever seen. You can see it by clicking on my name below.
