    Looks like it was a fun trip!

    What a fun trip. I forget how yoga makes me so so unbelievably flexible and once I am done with a session, there is just happiness oozing out of me. That is until I come to the lab, and then it all goes downhill from there.

    fashionista outfit you have there my friend!

  3. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    5 hours of yoga!? That sounds both horrible and wonderful at the same time!

    First – yay for yoga!!!I sadly slept through my class this a.m. oops

    but second – GAH that final pic of the bird almost had me jumping off my chair to get away!!! Such evil little swoopy-head-attacking creatures 😉

    What a fun day of becoming bendy and super fashionable!

    So here is my issue with yoga: I love the movement practice in yoga. And then there is that part of each session where you are supposed to lie in savasana for like 5 minutes being peaceful and I WANT TO RUN AWAY SCREAMING because I have STUFF TO DO.

    I realize that this indicates that I could probably benefit from more yoga. Eh.

      Moi aussi … I do yoga listening to the radio (for news and current affairs) but don’t tell the yoga teacher that…

    Also, Vosges has a partnership with yoga studios here – promoting yoga+ chocolate. Maybe you could hook up with them to start something in Australia.

    Yay for a morning of yoga and yay for your inner voice telling you leggings aren’t pants. 🙂

    You have reminded me about how much I need yoga. All the running has made my muscles really tight. The retreat sounds like a wonderful one. I love the pose that you struck, fashionista 🙂

    I think leggings plus shorts (and long wiggly socks) was a popular fashion back in the days. 🙂

  11. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    Hahahaha about picking out the outfit. Leggings are not pants. Amen, sister. And I’m impressed you can do five hours of yoga. I’m beat after about 20 minutes.

    Syncronicity + ! I started back at yoga this week after a (too long) break and have been wondering what kind of fool stops at all, cause you feel so great afterwards!

    Also: why do my students not understand that LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS? Especially super-thin, slightly transparent ones that mean I have to regularly ride the escaltors up to my floor with a faceful of ass?

  13. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Oh Hannah, just when I thought it was peaking already, my love for you is stronger still – leggings are not pants, never never never, no matter how many other stupid people you see are thinking that they are. It’s like no matter how many people pronounce bruschetta as “brooshetta”, it doesn’t make it right!

    And… cooler weather has finally hit Perth and the leggings/pants horror is upon us again. I think I need a yoga retreat to calm myself down after all of this. I just don’t think I can do it without you to be the other half of the tree though.

    Haha love this post. A yoga retreat sounds amazing!! I love your outfit. I am so of the
    “leggins are not pants” troup. BUT I totally wear leggings when working out. Sometimes this involves stopping by the shops on the way home. wearing said leggings. and being all sweaty. ok eeewww sorry how on earth did I make this about sweaty leggings. My bad. I want to go to a yoga retreat!

    As usual, you crack me up! I can’t believe you got so close to the bird… they always fly off around me!

    And I was thinking about making a drinking game for the amount of times you mentioned Sydney… just kidding. But I am jealous you live so close! I’ve never even set foot on the continent but want to go SO BAD 🙂 Ah, jumping from unemployment, to part-time work, to living as a student. One day, it’ll happen!

  16. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Darling that outfit is SO NOW! 😉

  17. Maria @ Scandifoodie

    I love yoga 🙂

  18. theresa

    This sounds like awesome. I’ve recently started going back to yoga, but just once a week, for an hour – I’d love to do a cool retreat like this, though. Great photo! Partner tree pose sounds like fun.

    It makes me sad, and a little sick when I see people wearing leggings as if they are pants when they are properly dressed, but I hypocritically wear them to yoga class! Without shorts on top – next thing you know I’ll be wearing jeggings when I’m teaching!

  19. Anna Johnston

    You’ve like totally impressed me Miss thang… 5 hours of Yoga. WTF… LOL! And on a Saturday. I think I need to start eating more chocolate or something, I seriously lack the motivation to do exercise ever… 😉
    PS: Digging the brown pants. So cute! Ive got a purple pair just like it! 🙂

  20. Margaret

    Oh wow, another photo and a new pose. 🙂
    I’m looking forward to reading about your Sydney trip, and seeing the photos of course.

  21. penny aka jeroxie

    You seriously crack me up! Love the last photo… 😉

  22. Johanna GGG

    If you had to have anything to rush to after a work trip, you couldn’t pick better than a yoga retreat. And when I read about your balance issues and saw the photo I thought – wow that is cool – I could probably do that in a pair thought I would just fall over on my own – and then I thought how ironic you say you have issues with balance when you seem to be seeking some sort of balance in your own life – maybe yoga is the answer

  23. Emma

    I will be the sore thumb of this page and boldly proclaim that “Potentially in some form of life somewhere, somehow, leggings could possibly maybe sort of be considered PANTS!” Gasp! This is just my jealous leggings-less self talking, as the only pair I had (they were too big for me) I gave to my mom. And oh my gosh she looks cute in them!

    Was going to mention something about yoga but people in the hall outside my office broke out in a yoga discussion right as I finished the last paragraph. This is a signal that I should abandon said topic and instead say stretchy-stretchy-bendy-twisty-wheeeeeeeeeeee-lovely-creepy-magpie!

  24. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I’ve never been on a yoga retreat day (awesome!), but I used to do yoga at home a lot, until I had to stop due to an elbow joint infection. I want to take it up again now, it made me feel so good and really woke me up first thing in the morning. Oh, and I also got stretchy-stretchy-bendy-twisty-wheeeeeeee! 😀 : D 😀

    I love your outfit, btw, and I think the shorts look fancy. Great blue/black/cognac color combo! 😀 (I mean that! ;))

  25. Vaala ◪

    Oh no!! So if leggings are not pants then I’ve been, well, not wearing pants for pretty much all of the sport that I do! How embarrassing!! I should probably not be mentioning here that I have, on many occasion, gone to public places like the supermarket and the dairy wearing skins (those compression recovery tights)…which could be considered worse than leggings. I am guessing you will never talk to me again now… 🙁

  26. Susan

    Wow that sounds too ridiculously healthy for me, but it looks like you had a great time!

  27. msihua

    That shared yoga pose.. we recently made the grooms men at a wedding attempt that pose in their tight suits before they could get to the bride.. tee hee.. it was funny… and they were hilarious…

    You however look very fashionista-ny… 🙂

    […] Saturday I spent the day being all calm and stretchy at a five-hour yoga retreat. […]

  29. Agnes

    Ah, I want to get back into yoga! Not the lying, down, meditating type yoga – I’m like you, I like the STRETCH BEND OHMYGOD HOW AM I OUT OF BREATH JUST TRYING TO HOLD THIS POSE?!? type yoga. Must find out how I can pack more hours in my day!

  30. Agnes

    Okay, keep an ear out. As long as it’s not too weird – you know how I am. 😉
