From The Hairpin:

10 Things My Yoga Instructor Said That Almost Made Me Quit Yoga

The comments are very much worth reading, for some particular gems, some interesting arguments about whether particular lines are useful visual images to improve alignment or complete gibberish, and one person's realization that their yoga teacher has not in fact been referring to their "sith bones" all this times.

Also the comment: "Tuberosity of the ischium sounds like a tentacle porn title."

Anyone heard any particularly great -- or appalling -- lines in their classes?

This makes me so happy.

I've never been to a yoga class, but I have had about a decade of singing lessons, including masterclasses and special classes just for breathing.

So much hilarity! And I learned a new word: bro-ga instructor

"Namaste, you righteous fuckers you."

D'aw!

Literal LOL; my co-workers must be wondering why I am helplessly snorting now.

I have been known to say all kinds of goofy stuff --hot yoga is ripe for some levity -- but it seems to be useful and enjoyed by students. Or at least I see them experimenting with position variations, and I I hear laughter. And if they're laughing, they're not gritting their teeth and holding their breath, so it's a win, right?
