Yoga, it has started to stalk me! You laugh, but it’s true.
For years now, I have been able to avoid yoga. I’ve stayed under the radar preferring pilates or a classical stretch program by Canadian Miranda Esmonde-White.
I don’t have anything against yoga, I guess I don’t see myself twisting my body in all sorts of shapes and standing on my head. My twin brother used to do that when we were young – stand on his head! That was funny!
I have never been a gymnast and I think that is why I have shied away from yoga, I feel like it is for people with limber bodies. I remember trying to master the cartwheel in gradeschool, it was not going to happen.
Why is yoga stalking me?
First, I was visiting my girlfriend who has been devoted to yoga for 10 years. She was dashing off to yoga class raving about it.
Second, I was innocently walking around Green Lake in Seattle when I noticed yoga on paddleboards? I shook my head, you know, when you are “verifying” that you “saw what you saw.” Yes, indeed, yoga on the Lake, see photo for proof.
I love the water, so suddenly yoga was looking interesting to me. However, it did cross my mind that if I can’t balance “off the water,” how would I balance “on the water,” but as I love the Lake that seemed like a small obstacle.
THEN it gets better… Third, I am at the airport going to my gate and I see yoga signs. WHAT — I shook my head in disbelief. Yoga is here too?
Do you see why I am being stalked by Yoga.
Three signs in one month?!
Don’t they say we should “follow the signs?”
My twin brother “would laugh” if I sent him a picture of myself standing on my head!
