Yoga Dad

I do my yoga solo. I use OnDemand videos, books, YouTube, I study my form in the mirror, etc.

Contrasly, my wife just has to find her chi in a *class*. She has to leave the premises and spend that $15 to have an instructor holler whisper directions in a group setting.

For a while now, she's been trying to get me to *just try a class*. She insists that they're different,....better and more effective. Yet I've maintained my thrifty skepticism. After all, I've never paid for a golf lesson either. I'm a complete auto-didact!

But I was just getting around to humor her and try a class when she all of a sudden changed her mind:

Mrs. C-Nut - You know, with you being an at-home Dad....taking the kids to ballet, soccer, and karate classes....if people in town start seeing you at the local yoga studio it may just be a little too much.


I had just convinced myself that it wouldn't be so bad to see the neighborhood mom's contorting themselves in front of me, nor would it be so bad to have some ripped yoga teacher physically correcting my poses....

But my wife makes a good point.

So as a compromise, I subscribed to Yoga Mom magazine which I'll conspicuously read at the park, in the library, and on the town beach.

Life is meant to be enjoyed and if you can make fun of the entire world, daily, life is even more fun.

By the way, did the response from that internet dude NOT count as a golf lesson?

Not a *paid* lesson.
