Yoga, the after dinner mint of exercise - until you try it..

Recently one of my oldest friends has started dragging me off to yoga.

Which has shown me just how inflexible I am and made me wonder how on earth can anyone can ever fall asleep during it?

Anyway, before I went for the first time I was imagining that the yoga teacher would be someone who looked like she lived on mung bean milk shakes and would radiate smug good health.

And don't get me wrong, it wasn't that she didn't.

It was just I wasn't prepared for her to have quite obviously spent some quality time with her plastic surgeon.

I'm thinking our yoga teacher is an oxymoron.

If that is at all possible.

I think you fall asleep in the relaxation bit AFTER.

"Mung bean milk shakes." That made me laugh. Ew. Then I winced. And you're right about the disconnect there with the healthy yoga and the plastic. Irony anyone? Thick, rich irony. With a side of mung beans.

Hiya Sheri ! A deep fried side of mung beans.
