The Yoga Project

In my last post, I chronicled my (so far) unsuccessful attempt to find a yoga class that’s a good fit for me and my inflexible body. A number of friends have encouraged me to keep looking, and as I did so, the germ of an idea took root in my mind.

Why not do the smorgasbord – tons of yoga, lots of teachers – and write up my impressions and observations of every class? Maybe that will help quantify the Om, render it less elusive – and get me writing in this blog again.

I bet most stuff on yoga is written by people who are actually competent at it. I can write about the agony of downward dog from the perspective of someone with barely functional hamstrings!  I’m very excited. Now the only question is when exactly to sign up so I can get the most bang for my buck. Looks like I’ll start either tomorrow or Saturday, with as many yoga classes as I can stand.

Welcome to The Yoga Project (TYP)!

I’d appreciate your support as I go through this – if you can drop a comment from time to time, it will really help – I’ll feel compelled to keep accountable. Can I do it? Only time will tell.


Here’s the whole project:

  1. This is SUCH a great idea. I got tossed out of my yoga class (ahem, prepaid!) in Prevessin for not being able to get there every time–au cause de OUTBREAKS of MERS and H7N9 bird flu, and small things of that nature! The teacher, VERY FRENCH, says to me, “You should leave work when the workday is finished. That is it.” Oh, yeah…. So now I am looking for a new class, too 😉

    • Sigh. I can’t say it is a total shocker, that attitude. What the customer would actually like is one of many competing priorities in Europe, am I right? but how ridiculous can you be? If you’ve paid, what diff to her whether or not you actually show up or not? Good luck. If you were in Lausanne, I would have the PERFECT instructor…
