Finding Inner piece


“Now,  VayuMukt-Asana”, our Guru, clad in barely-there spandex, led us.

Watching her , I wonder if she has a spine. Her ribs poke out as she gets into position.  I wonder if she has any flesh.

The Guru’s stare brings me back to my lumpy self. I contort into… a ball of cotton. That’s the best I can do.

“To find my inner chakras”, “To open my third eye”, “For Inner peace”, my classmates responded when asked why they wanted to learn yoga. Me? I just want to find my bones.

“Next, we are going to do the “SuckYourOwnTail-asana”.

I quit.
