Lickin' my Chops at the Mess the Commercial Yoga World is Today

Monday, February 18, 2013

Well, wouldn't you know. It was mentioned on my broadcast basic cable TV this morning ...

Ah, makes me feel there but for the grace of God go I ... I had to get the hell out of all that yoga due to my cardio needs (and believe me, Belly Dance Low Impact Aerobics is beginning to be the most fascinating exercise I have ever done in my Life ... ) due to my newly diagnosed diabetic condition.

I broke my seven months' long Facebook fast to "Like" a group about Type 2 Diabetes today.

Anyway, read my hips, 'er lips ....


Makes my experiences in 2010 [no lawsuit by me, of course! But I've been waiting for a watershed moment] at two yoga studios look like kindergarten rough-housing in comparison. And I can say that, even though I am 5 pounds too heavy imho to even attempt shoulderstand again ... And I can also mention that, in home self-practice, I'd lost my bearings and fell hard on my left lower leg out of crow [with a loud !thud!] a few weeks ago ... getting so many episodes all dizzy and disoriented like that in yoga (frequency of which has dwindled markedly in the past 5 weeks...) despite having practiced regularly for over 5-1/2 years--I still have to remark on this:

[...] in the Manhattan yoga studio belonging to Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Thomas. Thomas is being sued by Spencer Wolff, who says he suffered physically and emotionally after Thomas made him do "a dangerous activity at a wall." An online commenter who claims to be a friend of Wolff’s says Wolff severely cut his leg when his foot went through a window while he was trying to do a handstand. The lawsuit itself doesn’t specify though, so feel free to consult your imagination as well. But either way — yikes!"

"Yoga, you see, generally consists of performing dangerous activities on floors.

"Thanks to Wolff's comedically fancy pedigree, this reads like the New York Times wedding announcement version of a civil action. Currently a student at Yale, Wolff hopes to add a PhD to his gotta-catch-'em-all collection of degrees from Harvard, Columbia Law School, and the Sorbonne. "

Okay ... maybe it makes my diploma-mill MBA seem quite pedestrian in comparison .. but ...

OKAY, OKAY ... I'm gonna get that coin-scarf on and do a whole bunch of shimmying right about now ...

But I am questioning every thing from this moment forward ... Had not even known about that lawsuit when I brought up those new mat class substitutions vis-a-vis MY DIABETES PROBLEMS to the pilates studio owner.
