I like to talk about breathing. Here is a video of me doing just that.
I’m lost in her expression. Her grueling life in the circus has paid off with some exquisite biceps and one of the nicest circus costumes I’ve seen. I hope her circus boss pays her well. I hope she is the circus boss.

Ed ‘41. Let’s say he’s about 90-ish now. I think he lives just outside Milwaukee with a bunch of dogs. He likes turtles and pigs, too. Favorite food: super salty sauerkraut and dried figs. Drives an imported yellow fiat. Likes to spend his time emailing and playing basketball. Found here
Oh. This room. I could see myself enjoying some time in here probz with these ladies. They look smart and like they’d be down for a little modern dance session. This pose should feel good but these girls look a little stressed. Not knowing much about old-school cameras, I can guess that they had to hold this pose for a while resulting in all kinds of cramps and tweaks in the low back and knees. The one in the center is my fave. Look at that face. Her side-stretch game needs some help. My advice to her: Don’t collapse in the right side of the body- think length in the spine instead. Press into the shin to lift up and out of the hips as you draw energy in towards the mid-line of the body. Wake up the extended leg and step strongly into the foot. Found here
I want to see the face behind this mysterious poser.
Found here - A spinal column of lovely gals. From “Centipede” in 1929.
Found here. From the 1908 London Olympics. Strong legs and romantic hairdo’s. From a time when coaches wore bonnets.
