One of the places I practice yoga is in the city. I had to do a Google Earth search to get a picture of the front of the studio containing what I want to show you, because none of the published images show it.
“It” being the fact that that the yoga studio is on top of a “video” store. Actually, the studio is several floors above it. Frequently there are tour buses that park nearby. Sometimes I have the good fortune of arriving when a group of midwestern show choir kids have lined up to wait for their bus (and please do not misconstrue me; midwestern show choir kids are my people) and I get to wade through them as they are experiencing what appears to be their first viewing of such items as are on display in a “video” store window.
When that happens, it pretty much makes my whole day.
This yoga studio has excellent teachers. Some of them also make me laugh.
Here are some of the yoga zings I’ve heard lately (fill in your own accent, because each teacher has a different one, which I dearly love):
Teacher: There’s no reason to be afraid of bending backwards. Be afraid of hot dogs. And Ho-Ho’s.
Student: What’s a Ho-Ho?
Teacher: I was just asking myself that. What the hell do they put in there, anyway?

One thought on “What Funny Thing Does Your Yoga Teacher Say?”
Love it! Mostly because I’m a little uneasy about backbends, hot dogs, AND ho-hos. And “video” stores (hahaha). Thanks for the smile!
