49 Thoughts I’ve Had While Doing Yoga

Happy Yogaversary to me!

Today marks one year since I’ve begun my yoga practice. It’s been quite the journey and I’ve learned so much! Since then, I’ve completed 30-day challenges (currently embarked on number four) and have been named ‘Yogi of the Month‘ by my favorite studio, YogaSpark.

To celebrate I thought I’d jot down a collection of quirky thoughts I’ve had in the last year, during my time on the mat.

Which can you relate to?

  1. Are the back of my earlobes sweating? I didn’t even know that was a thing
  2. I need a pedicure… PRONTO
  3. There’s no way I can hold this pose for too long
  4. This instructor is seriously nuts if she thinks my body can do that!
  5. Wait it can!
  6. Wow, and I can hold it for longer than I thought
  7. Crap I fell out of Half Moon again, I thought for sure this time I could lift my hand to my heart, oh well next time
  8. Is that B.O.? Great, and there’s no way of knowing who it could be
  9. Wait, is it me? *Checks* Phew, no, but still… I’m trapped here for the rest of the class in B.O. purgatory
  10. I feel my balance is so much better today than it was yesterday
  11. I don’t believe there is anyone who can balance a tree pose in the dark, no way
  12. I need a manicure
  13. I wonder what I’m going to eat after class
  14. Is that a piece of lint on my mat?
  15. My neighbor is totally thinking I’m OCD with the number of times I’ve straightened out my mat towel
  16. What time is it?
  17. *Mentally hums to Nelly’s Hot in Herre*
  18. Blah, why are there so many people here today? There’s no room for me!
  19. Clear mind
  20. This is like the 50th chaturanga and my arms are now officially made out of butter
  21. *Crowded studio* – Did she just place her mat, right in front of me? I won’t see my poses in the mirror now
  22. *Empty studio* – Did she just place her mat right in front of me? WTFFFFF I don’t even get it
  23. Now I’m moving because this is ridiculous
  24. *Scans the room* – Why aren’t people wearing headbands? Am I the only one who cares about getting sweat and hair in my eyes?
  25. Excuse me, but is her hair down?
  26. Tighten
  27. I’m going to sleep so well tonight
  28. I feel so zen already
  29. Did my phone light just go on?
  30. *sneaks a peek* I wonder how many of these prayer poses are as peaceful as they look
  31. Can savasana be the second half of the class?
  32. Hot Fiery Cheetos are so damn good
  33. Why do men grunt so loudly?
  34. I wonder if I’m the only one who finds this strange
  35. There should be a studio-wide ban on grunting over a certain decibel
  36. Ugh, clear your mind!
  37. I wonder what my group text is chatting about right now
  38. Woah are my arms toned?
  39. Nope
  40. This lady next to me is twice my age and is totally ripped
  41. Maybe you have to be older to be ripped like that
  42. I’ll wait
  43. Wondering if after this challenge I’ll be ripped
  44. Nope
  45. Downward dog annoys me
  46. Why can’t it be child’s pose?
  47. Why is it called child’s pose? I never see children in this position
  48. Thank God it’s over
  49. I’m seriously a yoga goddess

    I love this! Can so relate! If we could only get our brain to take a chill more often for just the time we are practicing yoga or meditating .. 🙂 Nope, still on overdrive – Thank you for you post! It made me laugh.. which I love to do!

    Yesss!! Love all your quirky yoga thoughts. I most relate to “I need a pedicure”, and “what am I going to eat after class”. My other memorable yoga thought is “oh gosh, my legs are hairy”, ha!
