Inhale........H-exhale....pant like a dog..sing-song torture. Miraculously, you will feel enriched, empowered, flat tummied and peaceful afterward. Yog-ah!
Only, in between, your body will undergo twists and bends very close to khajuraho temple sculpture, minus the steam. Your teacher will say, "Close your eyes, observe..." (He says this, i swear). And you will be compelled to observe (from your mind's eye), the nature, the birds, the skies, the clouds. I don't remember the last time i saw all these things in reality, but mind's eye sounds good!
So after you have inhaled and hex-haled, you will then be told by your teacher that, you need to eat. Never mind that you came here with that very purpose in mind You try explaining, but he is convinced...you are anorexic.So you shrug and agree. "Fine, I'll eat, if that's what makes you happy." You'll ignore that guilty pleasure you feel when you dig into gooey brownies with extra chocolate sauce and ice cream. The only thing that hurts, is your wallet and uh...your thighs; post-yoga.
