I love this with a deep love:

Yoga Mantras for Jerks by Mallory Ortberg at The Toast

Also I am fairly sure I have done this yoga.

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?

I found this today via some random link-hopping; I think those of us who are or have been cat owners will be able to relate.

When my brother came over to my journal, looked at my beautiful yoga icons, and made a fart joke, I bet he wasn't expecting me to say, essentially, "Well, let me tell you..."

Have I posted this before?


An old favorite.

Alas, I find no equivalent for Mr. Obama.

UPDATE: The site used to have many more postures, but the guy published a book, apparently. To see allll the postures, go here and just keep clicking. Waaaay at the end, after some blank pages, you will find them.

From "Hello, Sun"

Fran is rushing around, and trying to apply lipstick. Her cellphone rings.

Fran [yelling]: Bugger! BUGGER!

Fran: [into phone, increasingly angry] Yep, I'm coming, yep, yep, I'm coming, yeah, I know, I'm coming, all right?! [hangs up and yells at phone] Pain in the arse!!.

Manny: Where are you off to?

Fran: [calmly] I'm going to Yoga.


So, I had totally forgotten Black Books did a yoga ep. If you are not familiar with this show, it is a Brit Com that has a few truly hilarious episodes, and a lot of really funny ones. It's about a horrible book shop owner, his hapless staff, and crazed neighbor. A show descended from Fawlty Towers in many ways. The yoga episode, Hello Sun, is currently available on Hulu, if you want to check it out. It is an NC-17 episode for some reason, so you will have to create an account to view it, but accounts are free and easy to create if you are interested

Yesterday morning as the cool down to my trance dance I did the "slow dance" segment, where the point is to experience the infinite space all around you, discovering how you are not separate from that space.

So, later, I'm leaving the grocery store, and I'm out in the (very large) atrium area, and this group of three people moving roughly together, kind of staggers in, as a group making it almost impossible to do anything but crash into one of them, and my spontaneous thought was, "Jeez, you don't have to *literally* expand to fill the entire universe!

I'm sure this means I need a little more time seeking inner stillness.

*snickers anyway*
