One-Hundred Words of Yoga: this is what runs through my mind during yoga class

 

Inhale. Exhale. Stretch and pose.

Focusing so hard: I forget to breathe.

Downward dog.

Wrists hurt with the strain of pushing my weight on them.

“Four more breaths,” she says. Hurry up, I think.

Standing position. Left foot resting on my right thigh as I balance on one leg.

Wobble. Sway. Focus, focus, focus.

Remain upright. Do I feel at one with myself; at peace with myself?

Palms together in front of me, as if in prayer: my body a temple?

I pray to no-one.

Lying on the floor. Essential oils.

I think of fish oil and swallow my laughter.
