Lou Engel: Cocosana

Hello, I’m Lou.

Most of my days I’m involved in legal tussles with baddies.

If I’m feeling naughty I love to take my bikini off when I’m swimming in the sea.

If I’m feeling nice I love to sing on my bike and bring my friends flowers.

Once upon a moment I went to my yoga class and I thought There’s always fluff on my feet……

One time, during alfresco yoga the wind changed and I was stuck in Warrior 1 pose for a couple of days. That will teach me.

One day, when I rule the world and it is law to eat Nutella all the livelong day I will also be able to Stand on one leg without wobbling.

When you speak to me of yoga matters please refer to me by my yoga super hero name of Cocosana.

If I have one piece of yoga advice for you it’s this: It doesn’t matter if you can’t do it, just have a go, no one’s looking.
