Given to Carol from Iwan.
A recent poll suggests boomerangs are a girl's
sixth best friend
I've never told this to anyone, let alone letting Carol know of my wish during yoga class.  In many yoga classes, there's usually relaxing Eastern music playing in the background (in tonight's class, there were gongs and stuff).  And 98% of the time, it works just great.  However, there's a pose called "The Pigeon" and I really want someone to play "Doin' the Pigeon" a song and dance that Bert on Sesame Street performed.  Just a request.

-Profession: Yoga Teacher

-Favorite Yoga Position: Tree

-Do you enjoy carol-ing at Christmas?:  No, It would not be a gift to anyone for me to sing.

-How do you reconcile the Lays potato chip slogan "Bet you can't eat just one" with the yoga practice of brachmacharya (moderation)?:  If everyone applied the Lays slogan to yoga, we'd all be balanced and healthy.

-% of yoga teachers who become professional body contortionists:  Less than 1%.  A long time ago, some yogis went into the circus to become body contortionists; it was a form of begging.  It wasn't the best part of yoga's history.
