I Don't Get It


I went to a yoga class. I laughed through most of the class (don't worry, it was quiet laughter). Not because I was so shocked that half the class was male. Not because the teacher was so stereotypical that I couldn't even handle myself. Not even because at the end we had to lie down and think about our "happy place" while the instructor came around and shook out our legs. No. I was laughing because I could not understand why it was so HARD! Seriously. Look at the above picture. This is all yoga is. Sit in this pose. Turn your chest this way. Downward dog. Class is over. Now why am I sweating worse than a hooker in church? I guess I'll never know.

Yoga is so soothing. So relaxing. So sweaty. I want Jason Fry to become a yoga instructor and I want you to be his groupy..maybe you stand next to him and towel him off from time to time. Maybe you fan him while he teaches I don't know just some ideas that popped into my mind when I thought about yoga and the possibilities.

I totally know what you are talking about! I do YOGA almost every morning and it kicks my butt? Who knows why or how, but it does! I do prefer it over running or anything like that though!
