Parivrtta Trikonasana: My Arch Nemesis

Dear Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose),

I hate your guts.

You make my hips burn, my ankles ache, and my jaw clench. You compromise my balance. You make me feel weak, agitated, and just plain mad. I find you so irritating, in fact, that if I never had to practice you again, that would be fine with me.

I know this must be hard for you to hear, so please know that it's not personal. It's not you at all really—it's me. I would break up with you, but I know there are still lessons for me to learn from you. So I will endure your unpleasant company, but I will NOT like it.

Love,
Erica

P.S. Tell your brother, Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana (Revolved Half Moon Pose) I hate him, too.
