In which I salute the sun

I made an observation today. My yoga DVD, which I used to ridicule for it's hokiness, is no longer hilarious to me anymore. And while I still giggle a little bit when the yogi says that a pose feels like "somebody licking ice cream off your body," and tells me to "feel the sweet honey of your hip," I really appreciate the admonition to breathe in all of the green plants in the world, or to carry yoga with me by lighting someone else's fire.

So...maybe I've become less cynical? Or more hokey? 

Either way, in the words of Eoin Finn, "Let love rule. Namaste."

  1. Or just desensitized to hokeyness :) It's okay, I used to scoff and scorn yoga myself. Then I totally gave in to Rodney Yi's Gaiam videos. Heck yes I will feel the energy in my body redistributing. He makes far less references to honey and ice cream, however.
