sita-ram sita-ram jai jai sita-ram

yesterday (sunday) i went to yoga with Crazy Czech at the yoga tree in the castro.

the class was pretty good, i kinda enjoyed it. it’s a much different workout than the elliptical machine or weight training, or even any other group classes.

you sweat several gallons worth, although you’re not moving so rapidly. i sweated enough to create a small lake on my yoga mat.

the instructor was J Stone. she’s cool. we started the class chanting some “ohhhhhmmmmm” s and so forth. at the end of the class she chanted, and we all sang (in hindi maybe?) it was quite enoyable as well.

there were about 70 people in the class. big room. and very hot in there too. i don’t think it was supposed to be bikram yoga, but it sure felt like it!

i noticed that all the guys in there take off their shirts. its like a requirement or something. and all the girls looked exactly the same: ponytail, black yoga pants, string tank/sports bra. yoga is like a weird cult.

the instructor didn’t play the usual kinda hippie dippie calming new age meditation music that you’d expect. i was too busy breathing (or forgetting to breathe), and trying to contort my body into poses to notice all the music, but i did hear Green Day, and Snow Patrol. (is Bollywood music far behind?) kick-ass!

at one point, i was concentrating so much on getting the poses right, that i was forgetting to breathe. i could feel myself starting to get fuzzy, and about to pass out. (@_@)

i had to leave the room for a minute to breathe in some cooler air outside the studio.

class ended, and i wrung out my wifebeater and shorts. we changed, and stopped into a nearby bar for a beer and thumpin music. and then some thai food afterwards.

and today my hips are a little sore, and so are my abs. yoga’s okay. although i don’t think i’ll be joining the crazy cult full-time. maybe just part-time.

mind body spirit.

namaste.
