Snarky Yoga

By: Melissa Ratliff

Hips tight, we transition from downward dog to three-point to pigeon on our left side. We’ve already suffered through it on the right. As we hold, Allison tells us the name of the pose in Sanskrit – Eka Pada Rajakapotasana. To go deeper, she has us lift our right hand and thread it through so we lay bent, twisted on our shoulder. It’s excruciating. “Hello stretch my hips in a way I’ve never felt before,” she jokes. Under his breath, the guy beside me grumbles, “Holy Eka Pada Rajakapotasana.” Well played. The snark in me honors the snark in you. Namaste.
