Been away from the blog for a few days, but that doesn't mean I missed any classes. I'm up to 108 classes in 104 days now.
Before I get to the rest of the blog for today, I have to tell you about a funny thing that happened in class today. As I've mentioned before, the Sunday 3 PM class is filled with REALLY good yogis. So I usually set up in the second row, not the front row like usual. Today, Sheri (the teacher) set up in front of me. On the second set of Camel, I continued to lay in Savasana and wasn't planning to do the posture. For reasons still unexplained, my heat tolerance seems to go on vacation on the weekends, so I was really hot today. Anyways, I was planning to sit out the second set, when Sheri kicked me in the head to get me up and doing the posture! I thought it was so funny, I forgot I was hot, and got up and did the posture. After class I told her how funny it was and she said "Well, it was effective!" I love having teachers that care that much, even when they're not teaching.
So here's the rest of the blog. I'm going to list some funny and interesting things I've heard in some recent classes. This is inspired by J, who did a similar blog at one point. I'm leaving out names on purpose (except me), but Michelle might figure out some of them.
Teacher: "You came out of the posture early!"
Student: "I like to get out of the gate fast."
Teacher: "Maybe that's why you don't have a girlfriend."
Teacher: "Keep your eyes open during the posture."
Student: "They are open. I'm just Asian!"
Teacher: "Greg, you just threw that one." - After I fell out of a posture.
Teacher: "Yoga is like a kiss. If you do it too fast, it's sloppy and gross."
Teacher (During Balancing Stick): "Greg, go ahead and touch (the girl in front of me). She's not doing anything anyways."
Teacher (During Balancing Stick): "Make a perfect Mr. T. I pity the fool."
Teacher (During third part awkward): "Pretend you have something really valuable between your knees, like Michael Bolton tickets."
Teacher, near the end of class: "Now you guys can go out and do whatever you want. Drink beer, whatever."
Teacher (to new student): "Just take it easy today. You'll see me kill other guys, like Greg. But you take it easy."
Teacher: "You guys are adults, you can do whatever you want. Except her (and points to her kid, who was in class)."
Teacher: "No sex for you tonight." She said this to a guy who was leaving the room, and his girlfriend was still in the class.
Teacher: "Yoga starts out as a workout, but becomes so much more."
Teacher: "Look into the mirror and into the eyes of your one and only true teacher."
