Lying On My Yoga Mat

Just back from my yoga class, taught by a good friend of mine.  She and I had recently reconnected on facebook, and the timing was perfect.  I was looking for a yoga class to sign up for, and she was getting ready to start teaching a new session.

So far, I love her class, and just as she said it would be, the class consists of a wonderful group of ladies.  There is one in particular, who seems familiar to me.  The more that I am around her, the more I think I know her from somewhere.  So, at the end of the class, when we are supposed to be relaxing and letting our thoughts "go", my thoughts are go"ing" through all of the memory pages in my brain, trying to identify where I might know her from.       

After talking to a few of the ladies after class, it seems I was not the only one having random thoughts during yoga.  I mentioned I should start a blog or facebook page about what people are REALLY thinking during yoga class:

"Did I lock the door before I left?"

"What should I make for dinner tonight?"

"I hope the dog isn't tearing up the house while I'm lying here."

"I really have to pee."

"Don't think.  Don't think.  Don't think.  Don't think." 

As it turns out, my feeling of familiarity is mutual, but damned if either of us can figure out from where.  Maybe by the next class, we will have the mystery solved.  If not,  you can guess what I will be thinking about AGAIN next week, lying on my yoga mat.

  1. I was going to post a great comment, but..."I had to pee" which caused my mind to go blank.ommmmm.

  2. Yes, peeing is contagious, just like yawning...................yawn.

  3. I spent so much time lying on the floor at the end of a yoga class, staring up at a vent with 20 years' worth of accumulated dust, that all I thought about was that vent, how long it had been there, why it hadn't been cleaned, how many dust mites were living in it, etc.
