You Are Such a Wild Thing

Today has been a little crazy hectic and I don’t have the time I wish I did for a really meaty post, so I’m just going to give a little shout out to a pose that I like to do for fun.  I’ve seen it written down as Camatkarasana, but I’ve only ever heard it in class as “wild thing.”  It’s a quirky little pose that doesn’t enjoy the best reputation among some yoga circles, due to it’s “newness.”  And it’s certainly not an easy pose, but there is something about it that I love.  Maybe it’s the phrase “wild thing” and the fact that my favorite children’s book is Where the Wild Things Are.” Maybe it’s the idea of being wild and free.  Perhaps it’s the lifting and opening of the heart.  I’m not sure.  But, I dig it.  So, if you don’t usually put a little wild thing into your practice, go ahead and get wild!  See what it does for you!
